It used to be that you couldn't go 4 weeks on a figure forum without a Bond thread/figure being posted, so here's me respecting tradition.
This is a bash I did of Daniel Craig as Bond at the ending of Casino Royale or opening of Quantum of Solace. I made the figure itself a few years ago, but never got around to posting it (admittedly because there are still unfinished bits of it).
Quantum of Solace is supposed to pick up immediately from the final scene of Casino Royale, but the filmmakers changed suit providers between films resulting in changes to the style of Bond’s suit. I’ve chosen a 1:6 suit that is a hybrid of both: 3-piece dark navy pinstripe like from Casino Royale, but with a very fitted, modern cut like from Quantum. I starched the shirt collars and used a tie from elsewhere, but otherwise this is stock. Naturally, his product plac-- fine Omega watch had to be peeking out from the cuffs as well. </p>
The “lake cuomo villa steps” stand / base is the very first base I ever sculpted, even before the Conan the Barbarian base I posted over a year ago. I was never happy with it (the steps are too curved), but it’ll do for now. I still need to add a Casino Royale label onto it.
The HK UMP weapon was made from Dragon Models parts, then given a repaint. I’m pleased with how the metallic texture came out on the silencer, but not so much the body of the weapon. I know the body is supposed to be a polymer, but without the metal effect it just comes out looking plastic toy-like.
And finally, here it is on my shelf of suited killers. I think it’s time to get more shelves..
