Some time ago Wotan blogged about the fascinating design history of his 007 Moon Buggy toys by Corgi. Many actual movie vehicle props, on which our favourite die-cast were based, ended up forgotten and forlorn when the cameras stopped rolling and the Moon Buggy was no exception, finding itself a complete wreck in someones field! Fortunately 007 superfan Graham Rye rescued the Buggy and restored it to its former brilliant Diamonds Are Forever glory, which you can read about on his fabulous website. I asked him if I could post his amazing before and after photographs above, to which he replied:
Hello Woodsy,Thank you for asking.
