    Maybe someone here can help me. I've got an old Uzi watergun lying round, that I'd love to turn into a Moonraker Laser.
    Does anyone have a clue what bits and pieces were added to it, before painting it white?

    I'm looking at the thing, and don't recognize squat.

    @barryt007 do you know what they added to the Uzi though?
    Short of 3D printing (which I don't really have access to) I really have no idea

    I believe the top part (rear sight, threaded rod & rail) is a vice/clamp, but don't quote me on that. Check out some of the builds on The RPF and ajb007 forums, where these questions have been asked many times before - however I don't think the other parts were ever identified.

    Good luck with your build, @Master_Dahark - personally, if not 3D printing, I would make the other unique shapes from wood and trawl the bay for the smaller pieces.

    After four years and two attempts, I'm pretty stoked to have finally finished these ID cards.
    Both made using multiple layers, with separate photo added then laminated.

    Cheers mate. The Camille ID is missing the crease running down the front- but other than that, visually, they are very close.

    I'm a bit in love with the sheer 90s-ness of the font on that ARCHIVE PROFILE.

    Good spot. That 'archive profile' font in particular, was used on Natalya's computer screen as well as MI6 props from TND. Documents, ID badges etc.

    Also, the MI6 paperwork from GE and the Foreign Office paperwork from QOS (both shown in my pics) use the same crest as their logo, but the crest is flipped for the latter film!

    Thanks buddy. What I can't make from screenshots, I take from exhibit/auction photos, with a little bit of improvising here and there. I also make some custom 'expanded universe' stuff.

    Lovely work with the ID cards and other items, @QBranch. There are plenty of details to look at in those objects that one can miss watching the films. Props do make the world of the film feel more detailed, tangible and believable.

    Agreed. The prop department go through great pains to create them, with many detailed props ending up just out of frame, or not even making it into the final cut. There are other interesting things to note such as different variations of the same prop, and the continuity errors we can spot with them. I'll make a thread on that topic one day.

    I thoroughly enjoy the prop collecting journey- from discovering a prop and identifying the correct model, to the hunt and acquisition. Or stumbling across a hi-res image of a paper prop that I can go to town on in photoshop. Sometimes that journey can be more exciting than being able to hold the finished product in my hands as Bond did.

    Yes, Xenia was very lucky to be in his company, and 'pulling rank'.

    To the owner of the 007collector.com website: say "hi" if you're reading!
    Great site, though - so much stuff you've probably never seen before, like:
    Groovy Foreign posters:

    Magazine covers (this one is so funny!):

    And props!
