I attended The Royal Naval School Verdala , Malta from 1972- 1975, what has this to do with Bond? I here you ask, well the school was lead by none other than a real Commander, "Cdr.Bond", He even wore the uniform to prove it. This picture was taken in the winter time, in summer he wore it in white with shorts!! In a school report he wrote...."Neil is a difficult child who likes to be the centre of attention", I was 8 years old so i guess that makes me the norm then!!

I’m using a close up filter for some of the shots I wouldn’t call it a lens as such; it only works with the Panasonic Lica lens on wide angle. There is a bit of distortion but I wouldn’t want to get too close to this puppet's head it’s not very flattering.

I just can’t decide what handgun My Bond will use. The Bond gun is a Walther PPk or latter P99 or the Beretta , I love the Colt 45 Automatic, not very British or Bond but I just might use my Poetic license for this short and go for the 45 , you’ll just have to wait and see.
Looks like being a choice between these two, i think I'll go with the authentic approach.

This blog will follow progress of my 30 second tribute to Bond and in particular Daniel Craig.
Why 30 seconds? , because that's how long the music lasts, which is part of a StopmotionAnimation.com users challenge. I've purchased the head sculpt (which is 1/6th scale) and awaiting it's arrival. I think I'll re paint some parts ,the lips look a bit odd.
The armature will be made from brass/aluminium wire and will be built up with foam. The clothes and shoes are taken from a bond 1/6th figure.
Daniel Craig wouldn't be complete without his Heckler & Koch UMP9 fitted with silencer.
