Past Event - James Bond Awesomeness! Little Nellie lands at The London Film Museum


Posted by Craig Grobler on Google+ On Wednesday, April 07, 2010

Fan Fest London Film MuseumThis morning my inbox has been full of the good stuff but non as awesome as the teasing hi rez photo I received of Little Nellie safely unpacked and on display at The London Film Museum.


If you are a regular reader you will know that a little while ago I was fortunate enough to pop into the London Film Museum (LFM) very briefly. This has been my third visit and I'm almost embarrassed to confess that every time I'm there the little maturity I still have left melts and I revert to a kid who has just found the golden ticket and gets to visit Willie Wonka's chocolate factory.

The exhibitions and displays change constantly, unfortunately I haven't had time to edit and upload the pics from my last visit but I was lucky enough to see a Dinosaur size animatronic model of Rexy (the Tyrannosaurus Rex from Night at the Museum 2), a display of costumes from John Boorman's classic Sword & Sorcery epic Excalibur including the armour suits from all the main characters, the actual face mask used by an ape in Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey as well as explore some of the areas of the London Film Museum used as locations in films. The foyer of the entrance furthest away from the river has been used in Mission Impossible as the Foyer for the Langley CIA headquarters, where Ethan Hunt breaks into to steal the NOC list and more recently as the Foyer for the villainous Frank D'Amico in the build up to the finale of Kick-Ass. But more about all of that in an upcoming post.

Fan Fest London Film MuseumLittle Nellie as seen in the promotional poster above for You Only Live Twice is the autogyro that Bond uses to great effect in You Only Live Twice .

Behold Little Nellie in all her glory

Fan Fest London Film Museum
Little Nellie can be transported in four large suitcases and then assembled into a formidable aircraft. She is equipped with two fixed machine guns (synchronised to a range of 100 yards), smoke emitters, air-to-air missiles, a flame thrower (with a range of 80 yards) and aerial mines.

Little Nellie will be viewable as part of the display for Fan Fest a Bond extravaganza weekend being held over the 24 & 25th April at the London Film Museum. For more info head over to http://www.fanfestival.co.uk/
