Topic: Die Another Day Tankbuster round - Names being taken!

Hi guys,

I thought I might make myself a replica of the tankbuster round from DAD. It's a fairly unknown/seen prop but it does feature in a deleted scene where the tankbuster is loaded up. I made a couple of these years ago and were described as virtually indistinguishable from the real thing.

Because buying stock materials in such small quantities is either impossible or a waste, i'll have some spare material left over. There won't be enough material for loads of these and I don't have much time spare, but would anyone else want one?

Drop me an email if you are.

Cheers,

MG ajb007/martini

Apologies but where does this appear in the film?

There's a deleted scene where the tankbuster is loaded up. The hero gun used a custom round that housed a blank cartridge.

Not a great image i know, but you can see the round alongside the gun here;

Due to demand, I might take a mould and cast out some of these.

If you want one, stick your name below.

Can we be clear.  These won’t at any point pass through Lord Plugs hands will they?

Re: Die Another Day Tankbuster round - Names being taken!

....sorry. Ask Pete, he'll tell you the resin ones don't feel as good as the cold feel of metal..... ajb007/lol   --Ed

Cold cast porcelain aint a bad substitute though  ajb007/biggrin

Re: Die Another Day Tankbuster round - Names being taken!

Surely the feel of it always depends on where you’re putting it, you may want something a little warmer than cold steel  ajb007/shifty

Re: Die Another Day Tankbuster round - Names being taken!

C'mon, Andy, there's nothing like the feel of 6 or 8 inches of cold metal in your hand...... ajb007/lol   =Ed
