FOR YOUR SHELF ONLY: BOND VEHICLES

Spy Vibe agent J Kraus of Auto Universum has uncovered an interesting French forum devoted to scale replicas of James Bond vehicles. In a very extensive backlog of posts, you can find cool models of virtually every vehicle that has appeared in the series. You will find not only impressive shots of collectors' shelves, but some nifty macro photos that bring some of the toys to life. I've always wanted to do a macro series of 007 dioramas, and these images shot against their box art remind me to take up the challenge someday soon. Here are a few that stood out as I browsed through the first thirty pages. Can you name the scenes? Forum link here.
