    That THUNDERBALL one is stunning!!

    These are great. Although I do prefer the ones that use artworks as opposed to the 1996 'baby hands' covers. Really like the OHMSS one with just Bond and Tracy.

    Thanks for all the kind feedbacks.
    I chose this less ‘Bondian’ art for OHMSS as it is a much more character driven movie whose focus is the love story between Bond and Tracy. The white background also complements perfectly the film’s main setting.

    You look a lot like Tim Dalton, I must say.

    So does that man.

    (Cool buy!)

    It did indeed come with a cat, and they even threw in a few extra toes. No Dalton to be seen though. I fear he's been kidnapped by someone. (clue below)

    These are baseless accusations and furthermore I'm not letting you in without a search warrant.

    Today I completed a lockdown project I've been on since the end of May: 1/24 scale model 2CV, with an aftermarket 007 Edition decal set. I'm really pleased with how this has turned out!

    That's fantastic, @Agent_99. Paint and decals look very professional. Congrats!

    Thanks, @QBranch! I'm glad you approve, because the lovely work you do on your replicas has been a big inspiration: if the collectible you want doesn't exist, just make your own!

    Many thanks @Agent_99, that means a great deal. You are quite right, if you can't buy it, make it. Perhaps what I like most about creating things only seen in the films, is that I get a strong sense of Bond's fictional world being real.

    Sorry @Murdock old buddy, it's not, as Herr Stamper would say, "For Carver!"

    Here's a clue: "Sleeping like a baby."

    Bond's recorder from AVTAK...?

    My research tells me Philips was founded in 1891. That means that device could have only appeared in 26 Bond films (27 if you count the upcoming one).

    Thank me later.

    Guess the prop.

    Is it an outer casing for a Philips 660 voice recorder, like the one Bond plays a pre-recorded conversation from in AVTAK?

    Darn it, I made the clue too easy.

    Celebrating AVTAK's 35th anniversary this year with a few things:

    Bond's voice recorder:

    Philips, promoting their 1982 Pocket Memo: "The Philips 660 is slimmer, lighter and more compact than any other made."

    The ultra mini M cassette is smaller than a regular mini cassette - it took me a few years to track one down.

    The recorder was also seen on Moneypenny's desk in both office scenes, as well as the deleted jail scene in Paris:

    Love the Zorin invitation is this screen used or a replica? If so self made?

    Cheers, buddy. I did make the invite, for double-oh-seven.

    EDIT: I mean it's for Monsieur Smythe. Whoops!

    Not a new prop, but one I haven't shown here yet:

    My most expensive bond item in my collection is a few of these cards currently still selling on ebay.

    Funny that the marking at the back of those cards didn't raise any eyebrows.

    So I bought this :

    And while leafing through the pages, I could see that the author didn't do his research properly : a line from Tatiana Romanova is given to Honey Ryder. Wonder how many mistakes like that I can find.
