Replica Vintage Passport.

I received this in the post this morning from Acacia Avenue, I think you will agree it is an amazing replica, the attention to detail is outstanding.

Cheers for this Robert {[]

    Wow!

    AA knocks it out the park again!

    I dared this guy to do the air ticket in 1:8 scale to match the DB5 model.

    A few days later this arrived;

    Thank you for humbling comments guys ;% it is much appreciated -{

    I won't say this has been an easy project, at one point it nearly did not happen, but after a lot experimenting I was happy enough to carry on and complete it.

    Glad you liked the 1:8th scale ticket MG....making that ticket was easy compared to the problems I am having building the Bl**dy Aston Martin :#

    Isn't the passport supposed to be for "Mr James Bond" instead or "Mr. James Bond"? If so, I guess a tiny droplet of liquid paper will fix it!

    Send the first one some bags of gummibears and a plug and he's happy.
    The second one is easier: A porn mag :D

    But AAs passports are great and now minigeff can not only travel to switzerland in his 1:8 DB5, he can even fly with BOAC :))

    It's interesting, isn't it? Fleming varied between Mr. and Mr in his character names and references.

    Absolutely fantastic job, Acacia Avenue. Awesome. I had to dig out my own old corner-snipped hard-cover passport for comparison. The new ones are easier to carry, but those old ones just had a certain allure to them that befits Bond!

    That's amazing! Are all of the items in the photo replicas? I need one of those silencers.

    The PPK is a blank fire and my good friend ASP tells me the silencer is an original walther one -{

    I know what you mean Si, but I think his empathy kicked in when he met you ;) :D

    He keeps on sending me friendship requests and I can't believe that anyone would agree them :D

    Was it Fleming himself, or perhaps his editors? If it was Fleming, then you would expect his editors to bring some consistency, but if it was the editors, then you could expect anything... :))
