Maybe Stéphane (Corky) or Rollerman can shed some light on this?


I came accross this item:







How to place it versus this:

Stunning !!!

I don't know this one. It could be a code 2. The card outer box seems to be an early 80's one with an added sticker. Not Solido in my opinion. A single home made piece ? A few series ?

Do you sell it ? I would like one like this !

Great find Gerrit !

where's Shirley Bassey when you need her... Nice car and did Solido make the star of the film the Aston Martin DB5 with working bells and whistles? Wouldn't mind one if they did as I dont have any non British die cast in my collection

Well Stéphane it is on Ebay, and like you, judging by the sticker on the box, I think it is either a code 2 or 3.  It looks rather good.


 


I made my own code 3 some time ago, the picture is not too good.

I followed the link to this image and the Goldfinger roller is there and whoever this collection belongs to they really really like 2CV's

Hi Guys, some notes for you...






Model 1, is the original issue backed by 'SOLIDO' and sanctioned by a James Bond fan club. 100 issues projected but only 35 issues known so far.


Model 2, is a variation of the first model, I believe offered seperately from the James Bond club's version. Quantity unknown at this stage, but probably no more than a Dozen.


Model 3, is the copy from Holland, based on Model 1, but without any 'SOLIDO' backing or authorisation.


Model 4, is also from Holland, but now with painted wheel discs and more of this version exists then model 3.


The models from Holland also carry a paper certificate stating 100 examples, but I do not know if all 100 were completed.


Rollerman.

Thanks Rollerman.


If you look at the #1, they got it all wrong with the black bonnet, comparing it with the real deal as used in the movie. Maybe the reason why no more than 35 of the projected 100 were made; the #2 a replacement?








The # 2,3, 4 and also my own code 3 have the yellow bonnet.  In fact the Solido PIII, although one of my all time favorite  scale models, can only be seen as a lookalike.


The model that compares best, in my opinion is this:





Nowadays the real deal seems to be looking like this:





And Corgi copied that admirably:






The somewhat downgraded version,

You're right Gerrit !

The Universal Hobbies is the best one. It's in my Top 50 RR display cabinet.

Well Stéphane that cabinet of yours; I can only dream about it.

Thank you. It would be kind that I make a picture of it one of these days...

I did put a phantom II engine (if you see the one I think of ) into the Phantom IV pick-up that is in this display cabinet too. After all it was made for test and why not to use such an engine. And that's because I don't have another motor available in 1/43 !

There are some TSM, Top-Marque, Elegance, Heco modèles, FYP, Magia, CCC, Matrix, Admirer, and some nice other models.
