Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

Thank you for your compliments.
Hi JB88!
It's strange to address you in English, but maybe someone else is interested in the processing I've done.

To correct the JBCC model error I used a very simple method.
However, it requires considerable cutting precision and very thin drills
I simply made two longitudinal cuts on the tail. I reduced the thickness of the metal in the inside just behind the tail transversely. Finally, very carefully, I folded the "back hood" to flatten the line.
Finally I finished the cutting edges with small touches of paint.
The cuts were made diagonally so that the edges were very close together

Actually I had bought the coupe (# 14 of the collection) to make this model.
After a long time (n.69) came out the V8 Volante in the JBCC! So it was much easier to to get a good model of the car, because there was no need to remove all the war gadgets...
But, having already started the transformation, I had the idea of doing the diorama of winterization... ajb007/smile

Now I am working on another V8 Volante JBCC to get the V8 Convertible by Paul Banham  ajb007/smile  ajb007/smile

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

I hope that i post here in the correct place. Barbel said for me to move what I wrote in another part of ajb
I saw on the second hand market some James Bond cars. They were all the cars from James Bond films I think to the last Pierce Brosnan film. They were Corgi make and all each in the box but they were not new. They were £5 each.

If people think this is a good price to pay then when i go to the market and the man has still got these models to sell then I think I would buy the goldfinger astin martin and the omhss car also and perhaps the spy who loved me lotus.

Hello Joshua

If they are Corgi I assume they are the 1/36 scale models.

As new they can normally go for £10-15 plus so I'd say 5 quid is a pretty good price for second hand if the box is in good condition.

Immediately a dream car of mine after first seeing CR at ten years old.

My apologies to the owner if you happen to see this. I would blur your license plate but too damn cool not to!

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

Just got the Hot Wheels Elite 1/18 Aston Martin DB5! This model has been a long time coming. At least 4 years since it was first announced by Mattel but it was never officially released. For some reason, they're recently appearing at ebay so i decided to take the plunge and get it since i've been waiting for the Elite DB5 in this scale.

I'm very impressed by it. It looks better than the one from Ertl with all the sharper details for both the interior and exterior. All the usual refinements as well since this is the Elite model... Ejector seat, machine guns, revolving front and rear license plates etc.

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

Hi all,
Just looking for some advice on my "The James Bond Car Collection" set of which I have 1-51 including all magazines. None are in their sealed packages but almost all of them are undamaged, one car has large cracks on the plastic case. Some magazines are a bit wrinkled and the posters on the first few have been taken out, most put back in place. The majority of the magazines are in great condition

Is this set worth anything? I see the odd collection like this on eBay with silly asking prices but none ever seem to have bids on them. Is anyone on here interested in them or a certain few cars?

Cheers

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

Hello to everyone!
in regards to the film "die another day" I noticed the plate of the Vanquish: KE02 EWW.
It may be that he wants to allude to:
Korea England 0-2 (how about a football match?)
If so, what could "EWW" mean?
Thank you
Renato
