Re: Props - No Clothes

It contains a lot of shots especially for GE.

Now comes the question...
Some pics help me on WIP props but there is a type error on the original props.. Basically it means nothing in Russian because they got one letter wrong.

I have confirmed the translation with a Russian colleague, no doubt on it.
By the way, he was nevertheless impressed by the overall Russian Translation in GE. Not prefect but much much better than in many movies.

Back to subject, so I make the props with or  without the mistake? I'm tending to let the mistake...

Re: Props - No Clothes

Definitely make it with the mistake. Holly Goodhead's plane ticket has a typo on it, but I left it on because screen accuracy is most important. I tend to think that some of EON's props have deliberate typos to distinguish them from the real-world item.

Re: Props - No Clothes

Just received the most amazing package of replica props from the masterful Henrik !  These pieces are works of art and his attention to detail is staggering.  And many of them have a ‘working function’....Henrik goes into painstaking research to make each one of these look as authentic as the original and I am proud to have them in my collection. Thanks, Henrik!!!

For those you looking for the book, Alex refers, obviously, to an Italian edition.
It was also published in Japanese when the EON "archive" was exhibited in Tokyo.
Might also be available in a third language.
Aside from the text, the images are the same in each.

Re: Props - No Clothes

Hi all. After many years of mulling, my brother and I decided to tackle our own custom prop project. We'd always wanted a replica of the Moonraker Laser Pistol; as an official prop was never made and reference materials are sketchy at best, we decided to put together our own take on the gun:

We started out with a Dixco timing gun which we removed all the innards from. We then added in a custom light kit including a flashing SMD and switch. After some strategic wiring and placement, the trigger now activates the pulsating light.

As there are no definitive reference pics of the assembly of the rear of the gun (not to mention the fact that there were so many different on screen versions in the movie) we decided to go in another direction and had some custom chrome Drax Industries logo pins made and adapted since the logo was so prominent in the film.

In case you're wondering about the white buttons, after reviewing some screencaps from our Moonraker BluRay it was pretty clear that one of the guns Drax held on Bond had three protrusions on one side and two on the other so we went with that layout. We also really didn't see any black border around them, so we left them white.

Lastly, there is the custom made base with laser etched Drax Industries logo.

Looking forward to adding it to the rest of our Bond collectible collection. This is our first stab at making a custom prop so it was quite a learning process but also a lot of fun to put together. Hope you guys like it (click on each pic for larger versions).
