    Hi all
    it is with deep sadness and all my heart ! i just wanted to say a few words to the friends and family of my great friend Andy House,
    i have been away from the collecting and memorabilia seen for quite some time now and over the years i have had the pleasure of meeting some amazing people along the way,
    over the years my relationship with Andy grew into more of a friendship, and although we did not see much of one another we kept in touch, i have had the pleasure of working on so many of Andy's personal collections and spent many nights talking on the phone and meeting for coffees just to have a catch up on all things James bond, it was during these times it becomes clear just how much research and perfection goes into the projects that Andy produced,
    living fairly close to pinewood he would always stop in for a coffee after one of the many events he had attended, we always reminisced about the premieres we had attended and the good times we all had together in our little group,
    Tina Mark James Gavin Andy and myself all had a little tradition of having a drink at the playboy club and one time borrowing the playboy limo to drop us onto the red carpet,
    i am deeply shocked and sad that a great friend and true gentleman has been taken so early in life and all my love from tina and my family goes to Jen and all that knew Andy,

    God’s Garden
    God looked around His garden
    And He found an empty place.
    And then He looked down upon the earth,
    And saw your tired face.

    He put His arms around you,
    And lifted you to rest.
    God’s garden must be beautiful
    He always takes the best.

    He knew that you were suffering,
    He knew you were in pain,
    He knew that you would never
    Get well on earth again.

    He saw the road was getting rough,
    And the hills were hard to climb,
    So He closed your weary eyelids,
    And whispered, “Peace be thine.”

    It broke our hearts to lose you.
    But you didn’t go alone,
    For part of us went with you,
    The day God called you home.

    Hello everyone,
    This morning I had the privilidge of attending a final farewell to our very own “Gadget Meister” Andy House.

    Thanks to a webcast at his service I was able to be there, at least, in spirit as his friends and family attended his funeral.

    Andy made a grand appearance as his remains were carried to the stage while the James Bond theme played in the chapel.

    His ebony coffin bore the the 007 logo with the words inscribed above it “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.” An MI6 logo also was on there as well.

    It was a beautiful service with his closest friends remembering, with fondness, the pleasure it was to have Andy as a friend.

    We, who had been lucky enough to have gotten to know Andy, will forever miss his many contributions to our hobby and, like Diamonds, his friendship with us, are Forever.

    Rest in Peace, Andy. You are sorely missed
    --Ed Maggiani

    I haven’t been here in a while, but thanks to a heads up by thespyboys11, I’ve dropped by to pay my respects to the one and only Gadget Meister.

    Rest In Peace Andy!

    Your contributions to AJB and the Bond community will be sorely missed.

    Until we meet again...

    So, what sharp little eyes you've got...wait till you get to my teeth.

    Hi Everyone
    I have the massive task of cataloguing Andy’s collection of props / posters / gadgets etc etc. They will all go up for sale and some high end items will probably have to go to auction. Will initially put them on here to offer them to genuine collectors as Andy would like that with a guide price but will ask you all to help me out trying to identify some of them as my knowledge is not as good as most of you here. So what is the best place to list them on this forum As don’t want to list them in the incorrect thread. If you are interested in any of the items or want something from his collection please contact me via this thread and I will PM you Thanks all.

    Rest in peace, “Dink,” Margaret Nolan. As we know, she figured prominently in the title sequence version of the Jill Masterson "golden girl" character.

    This figure was released by Exclusive Premiere Toys over 20 years ago and at approximately 1/12th or dollhouse scale, the quality left much to be desired. Except for the hair (modelled after Ms. Eaton's), it was Margaret Nolan who I had in mind when I decided to make a few tweaks to this figure that included a partial face repaint and some changes to the bikini. I must confess to preferring her physical attributes over Shirley Eatons'. Sad to see another one of the Bond lovelies passing on in such a short amount of time. :(

    Hi All

    Some of Andy’s collection items are starting to appear on eBay. Once the UK’s COVID restrictions have eased from 17th May more items will appear. Most items will be under James Bond Props in Film Memorabilia or Other Props so keep an eye out. Thanks
