It is a shame as I did not take any photos of this restoration as I was doing two other models at the same time, I know that the spring was awkward to keep in when fitting the base , it sprang out on me a few times but I got there in the end & it still pushes the bonnet up when you press the front end down.
The inner sloping window is a great design the rain never got to it when the car was moving.

Does the Bond Aston have Bond and the Baddy and do all the gadgets work?
I don't know the blue car. What is that? I am not that up on all the Corgi cars.

Hello Nobleco These are Corgi Juniors (Matcbox size ) Mr Bond is in the drivers seat and the roof opens, I do not know if there is something missing ; The blue car is from the serie "the man from UNCLE " I do not think it is based on a real car The front opens and I think there can be something like a rocket fired from there. In between those two is an Austin Healey le Mans Sprite, an interesting model Have to look it up regards Jan Willem

I heard there is a huge storm hitting norther and western Europe right now. Was on the morning news.
We are at -13°C here this morning and the first day in over a week that it has not snowed over night. Rah Rah, no shoveling today.

Re. #499 - It is based on a real car. It is, in fact, an AMT Piranha.
AMT, the plastic model kit company, seriously considered to get into real car production and several Piranha protoypes were built, all Corvair powered and all with a Cycolac ABS body.
They indeed managed to product place one into the U.N.C.L.E. telly series and made a 1:25 scale plastic kit of that car.
