So here's my latest "scratch-build" primarily to showcase the "working" fireplace I found. OK, so it's really a Christmas lantern with a battery operated burning fire effect but to a 1/6 scale modeller such as myself, it's a golden find!

No camera tricks or photo-shopping.
The set-up is mainly made from core-foam and cardboard, the columns to the mantelpiece are really cake-decorating supports, the picture is actually a genuine little oil painting I bought in Paris, (so it's no great art work, but the scale is perfect) and I also used some bits I cut from a wall-paper frieze. The rest, including the little chandelier and candelabrum are miniatures from my collection of odds and ends.

Bond is enjoying his signature vodka martini, shaken, not stirred of course as evidenced by the cocktail shaker sitting at his feet.
But that is Bond's gun, complete with silencer already attached, sitting quite within his reach on the mantelpiece so I really don't know just how this seemingly cosy situation is going to end!

The whole thing looks so much better when you can see the flame effect actually working, so will try to post a You-Tube view later.

I love the furniture! Those are some classy 1:6 scale pieces, very elegant, and very realistic.

Nice work on the fireplace. You integrated the holiday light very effectively.

This is looking like one of those envy-inducing dioramas, like on the Jatman Stories website.

Most of the light itself is hidden behind the wall.
It's still intact so that it will work, but I couldn't believe it when I saw it in the shop.
I instantly knew I had to make a scene around it.

Thanks so much BAM!
Past adventures?
Perhaps, ...or maybe even some proposed ones in the future, but that gun lying there still has me worried!
Someone doesn't trust some one, and what looks like a peaceful scene could, in true James Bond fashion, suddenly turn violent. Shocked Shocked Shocked

As promised initially here's a little moving footage that shows the fireplace in action.
It doesn't really photograph as well as it looks in reality, but hopefully this will give you some idea of the effect.
