    Hello,

    Some news, ans some design modifications after gettings Texas00 feedback, the bullet will be larger and longer, and the bullet loading will go inside lighter furnace, not lighter core like I first designed it.
    Except that, it seems even rough from printing the assembly is not too difficult, except some pieces I designed to get a very strong fit.
    Thanks to him for the first update.

    I wanted to know if someone within France, or at least EU would be able to send me a FE and SD golden gun for video comparaison.
    I would use them as size display and functions comparaison, I can use existing videos, but if I can make all myself, it would be far better.
    I found only a poor quality sd studio video, and probably copyrighted fe video...
    Within France would be the best, Europe can be good too, no custom duties or declaration required, it's much easier.
    I can pay shipping and shipping back for the help.

    Which nib block is the same as used in the movie ?

    I think the accurate nib is on the bottom, I made screenshots of the movie and reflections make me think so.
    But I designed both nib versions, as the top was already on the market back in 1971.

    Nice progress pics -{

    To my eyes, the correct nib looks like the top one in this pic:

    The are a few frames in the film, where the nib looks wider/not like a typical tapered point; and where the nib meets the black section does not look flush.

    thanks for sharing your idea, I have same idea.
    It's a good think someone is confirming it, because it's also far easier to make a working barrel with the top nib design.

    Some pictures of my design compared to SD studio, thanks to Texas007.
    I will be able to make a new video of full brass golden gun on January.
    The design will evolve, I added some more change, for even more accuracy than actual prop on picture.

    Amazing! The skill of the members never ceases to amaze me. It's taking me about 6 months to build a straight forward Goldeneye mine :))

    Absolutely amazing!!! You have done a tremendous job and this, by far, is without a doubt, the best replica ever made.
    Kudos for your attention to detail. Looking forward to your Shapeways offering. --Ed

    @parfaitelumiere Fantastic outcome! {[] The amount of effort you've put into this is commendable - a level of quality that all prop makers should strive for.

    More to come, I think I will make a small video, one part with a customer who orders me a million dollar shot, another with the victime to be shot down.

    I read the first part and though that somebody ordered you for a million dollar of golden gun :))

    Would be so great!
    A million dollar for a solid golden gun, I would be so happy!
    Maybe some very rich collector could read it and get the idea, if he is reading this, he has to know the new version of the golden gun, the one in my head, would be just a crazy prop, from a crazy mind, crazy of detail especially.

    the victime to be shot down.
    Who knows? He may even use one of those little golden bullets on ME. And that would be a pity because they're very expensive.

    not his
  • parfaitelumiereparfaitelumiere Posts: 153MI6 Agent
    Texas asked me, first I said "yes" but when I saw the rounded shapes and lathe lines, I checked, and it's the original prop, not my bullet.
    I actually sold 4 bullets with 007 engraving, 3 smaller in size to texas007, and one standart size to another ajb member.
    In the first time I was thinking about that last bullet.
