I have been wanting to build the Ericsson Tomorrow Never Dies Bond Phone for forever.

Since Ericsson refused to make literally the world's most requested cell phone, I got the closest model and began to modify.

This seems to be beyond my skill. I was hoping to make it with lite up electronic lights, screen, etc. but I can't even get the front half to look right and that is the easiest part.

Every cut I make and the darn thing cracks and falls apart.

Some symbols are not right and I have no clue, after modding the buttons, how to print the correct symbols, numbers, Ericsson labels, etc.

This seems to be beyond my skill level as I have damaged the phone on the first step.


I know a lot of Bond fans would love one of these. Add electronics, the flip over fingerprint scanner, stun gun, car remote and you could make a pretty penny.

I have seen one or two resin replicas. I know there was one here someone made that looked good.

If someone could do a run I would happily pay 1k for an electronic one. I think others would too. Maybe a kit.

Just a thought, idea, etc. I am gonna scrap this one I think.

All I know about the prop was it wasn't one prop. It was multiple props, one for each function. But yeah I loved this one too and wanted to make one for a good while

This is very cool if you want a static phone for just display. It is very well done but is solid, does not open. Very cool though.

Okay some of you have seen this before by our member Kmagzoo7:


He is going to work on a new version. He is going to try to incorporate the flip up fingerprint scanner. I also am hoping he can incorporate the stun gun prods and removable Antenna.

He said he is going to try to make it stronger at the hinge and hollow for electronics but there will be very little space and he is only going to offer the phone, no electronice.

This is very early. I asked if it was okay to share and he said yes but emphasized this may be a while.

There is no guarantee and it may not happen but would be awesome if it could.

Honestly I would be thrilled with a kit of any kind and put it together myself or a finished prop.

Really cool and interesting project!

Klaus did a really nice job for a visual static prop! He even gave me an impulse to warm-up the CAD software and get some ericsson phones out of boxes!

Here is another great video form the man on Youtube that Ed posted earlier.

It is an interview with the man who designed the phone.

Yeah after posting all this I took another shot at it and the phone continued to crack and break.

Gonna set it aside and wait for Kmagzoo7 to hopefully make his.
