Topic: S.D.Studios, Licenced and Unlicenced

Please Ed, if you feel like jumping in please do, at the end of the day in my opinion if it wasn't for you he probably would'nt have gotten a licence

Who could not fall in love with this, I even believe Ed took this photo.

In 1995 I saw this on the back page of one of the 007 Magazine's that Graham Rye excellently produced/produces.

All of this transforming stage of the Golden Gun is just salesman BS, only the first is licenced

Next we havde the original pamphlet to dribble over. by this time the licence was about to run out, he sent in the bowler hat  ajb007/rolleyes

So far so good, everything is a licenced product, this is what is known as the first generation and ONLY licenced products.

Unfortunately the 1st Gen GG is prone to filing apart, you can pick up a good one tight one if you keep looking.

The 1st Gen Breather is not one that was copied from the photocopy blueprint that will be mentioned in further documentation.

And the differences between 1st and 2nd Gen MR Dart Gun is width, the first is wider, this is where the sofa with a different dimension comes in to play, he was always finding parts, so there are probably 9 different runs.

Re: S.D.Studios, Licenced and Unlicenced

Good documentation, Pete.
The Golden gun photos were taken by David Di Pietro who a good friend and avid Bond fan.
He and I went on to form TheSpyBoys.com until his departure to work for Atlanta Cutlery.

The reason there are so many generations of the Golden gun is because kept making them incorrect. Dave and I constantly would pick apart what he had done wrong. He would then proceed to make the corrections which is why there were so many parts from those previous runs.

I suggested the line of Desktop props and yes, even the radioactive lint which he collected from his dryer.

I suggested his selling the Broomhandle Mausers as Red Grants Pistol, the airsoft P-99's and PPks and lent him my MGC Beretta to be cast and sold with a silencer.
