Corgi 261 Aston Martin DB5, James Bond

Corgi 261 Aston Martin DB5, James Bond

Ref: 40348

Excellent, box Excellent

Price: 155.00

This is a beautifully-restored early Corgi James Bond Aston Martin, in an equally fine reproduction box.

The operating features all work correctly: a rear bullet-proof screen pops up when you press the exhaust pipe, and tabs on the side operate the extending front machine guns and overriders, and of course the famous ejector seat. This is the earlier casting, with front indicator/side lights cast in, and larger side vents.

The gold paint finish is exceptional, the best restoration I have ever seen. The plastic interior and suspension mouldings may be reproductions; the suspension feels far more robust than usually found on these models. The driver and passenger figures are also assumed to be replacements or repainted, as they look too good to be original. The tyres are new. The only defects are marks on the bullet-proof shield and the inside of the roof where parts have rubbed during operation.

The box is a very high quality reproduction, correctly scored and folded. The inner display plinth is indistinguishable from an original - in fact I'm not 100% sure myself! It comes with instruction envelope, instructions, adhesive lapel badge and colour Corgi leaflet. Again, I don't know for sure which of these are reproductions, as they are so accurate.

Length: 95mm.
