ajb007/lol Ford anglia from Dr. No? If you wanted us to take this list seriously then why would you say that.

I must agree, by Ford Anglia, it must mean the Sunbeam Alpine surely? I dont remember a Anglia.
I don't want to put anyone down, but I'm a little skeptical about this one, could it be another Wikipedia list?

And I think the jury is still out on the Q boat & Dr No tank as extras or not.

The Ford Anglia belonged to Strangways, it is one of the first cars you see in Dr No - he gets shot as he is climbing into it to go make his daily radio call to London.

Oddly enough just on Sunday I was saying on the other British 007 forum that discusses this collection that the Anglia was one of the cars from Dr No that I personally wouldn't mind seeing still make it in this collection.

One thing that is odd about this list is that the red Ford Country Squire from GF has disappeared - it could of course be scheduled for # 97 thru 100, but it is unlikely that they won't make that particular model.

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

Wow lots of skeptical people out there! I don't blame you, I would be as well! lol

The list came to me from a very nice gentleman at GE Fabbri named Tim Whitfield, Customer Service Executive of GE Fabbri.

We have written back and forth a couple of times, maybe they feel bad that We really have to pay a lot for the collection to be shipped to North America!?! Who knows? I'll take the pity info!

Please do not try to contact him as we don't want to lose or abuse this source

I will try to put up the link he sent me

By the way I'm loving this extenstion, many really great models to come, if they stick to this list. The weirder the better, for me!

Still lots of great stuff not on the list yet, lets cross our fingers!

Hi!

Does any of you know a good newsagent, who sells JBCC issues on ebay and has reasonable prices, when

shipping to Europe? Or perhaps here at the forum is a subscriber, who already has clients around the world ajb007/shifty


Please send pm or email.

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

I rang up the JB Car Collection number in the UK and they say the publisher has just listed to 85 models, but I suppose it doesn't preclude them adding more on.

81- Beach Buggy. 82-Q Boat.  83- Peugeot 504. 84-Dragon Tank. 85-Land Rover.

(The Q Boat and 504 swapped places-if I heard the order correctly.)

Just have to wait and see.

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

Hi Teppo, I get my models sent to me by chris.clarke4@ntlworld.com his rates are good and the models arrive undammaged. Many I have gotten from other sources arrive with broken plastic cases. If you buy more than one at a time you save on shipping

Hope that helps

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

Has anyone had a problem with deliveries of the cars, as I'm still waiting on Januarys modles, 80 & 81, and was told they hadn't been dispatched yet.

I think you might be a bit early. I got 78 & 79 in January. 80 & 81 arrived this morning. I would have thought you would get yours shortly.

By the way 82 will be the Q boat, according to the back of 81. I'm looking forward to that. ajb007/cool

81 would be officially released in the shops today...so it might be another week before you get 80 & 81.

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

Yes, today was the official release date for Issue 81 at the retailers - they are released every second Wednesday in the shops. 

Just noting the recent issues for the record, they were:

N°78 - 30 December 2009

N°79 - 13 January 2010

N°80 - 27 January 2010
https://vault2.secured-url.com/databasefactory/jamesBondCars/backIssues/i/bond80.jpg

@dr who collector: Personally I take what is listed as upcoming releases on that Wikipedia page with a huge pinch of salt. Because Wikipedia can be edited by anybody there is no guarantee that what you see is in fact correct ... at one time that article listed several Rolls-Royces as upcoming releases, such as the OHMSS Corniche, but it was just someone having a fantasy.

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

Following on from the comments and what others have done with regards to Little Nellie and the T55. I have had a play with a background for Little Nellie today and here are my results.

To start off with I used the base from the Range Rover Sport Casino Royale and I tried the background version that someone else had done and came up. The sandy coloured background, I thought didn't quite fit with the grey base. So I looked at the film for some insperation and I noticed that the path out of the door is grey. Great I thought, as it will match the base. I took a screen shot from the film and played with it Photoshop to get a more realistic looking background.

Original screen shot.

My Photoshop version.

The final results with Nellie and in the case.

http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b237/lester16v/James%20Bond%20Car%20Collection/DSCF5894.jpg

It doesn't quite fit in the case, but is good enough.

This is what someone else has done.

Sorry for the poor quality photo. Here are both backgrounds together.

When I have a bit more time, I'm going to have a look at a background for the T55 and try and find a case for it to fit in with the rest of the range.

#83 - Q-BOAT
#84 -DRAGON TANK  - OR GIFT #4
#85 - LAND ROVER DEFENDER
#86 - RENAULT FEUGO

If the 84-Dragon Tank is the 4th Gift for Subscribers, then does that mean that
Non-Subscribers who get their models at shops won't get the Dragon Tank and so in effect the Renault Fuego will be the 85th model for them?

I wouldn't take Wiki as the definitive list, as anyone can change it.

The Q boat will be 82. I can confirm this, as it says so in the back of 81 that I have.

I guess we will have to just wait and see next month when we get 82 and 83, to see what 84 will be.
