And what weird little things does Doug Redenius have in his collection?

Doug gave a whole talk about how each vehicle was acquired. Most were somehow tracked down by the IFF or someone called the IFF because they had this thing sitting in their backyard and wanted to get rid of it! Believe it or not, both the Moonraker and L&LD boats were still in use. Most of the vehicles had to be restored. Most were relatively inexpensive.

Zencat, I just wanted to know if any figure were thrown around about the IFF collection of vehicles. I can only imagine their worth! Did they mention how they managed to get their hands on so much stuff?
Doug was pretty much given the Q-boats and parahawks by Eon. He was at Pinewood while the parahawks were being destroyed and Wilson told him to go to the stages and grab whatever he wanted. Then they negotiated a price and the IFF had to arrange for shipping. Nice, huh?
And he said the IFF has already made a deal to get the props from Bond 20.

I forgot to mention that the BATH-O-SUB from DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER was also one of the IFF vehicles we got to take a look .
When the Bond exhibition was on over here in the UK in 1997 I went to see it a few times. The BATHO-O-SUB was there, it was suspended from the ceiling, I couldn't resist touching it (like you do) just to say I've touched the BATH-O-SUB, I was then given a warning by a security gaurd but it was worth it. Despite the warning I still touched the sleek TSWLM lotus unoticed and the GE Aston, everything else was in glass cases.
