These photos from Nassau, 1965, are the private pictures of William Creighton. He worked as a carpenter and model-maker on some of the early James Bond films, Goldfinger and Thunderball. Though he is uncredited for his work.

The pictures gives a glimse of the process of making the full size mock-up of the Avro Vulcan B.1 used for the underwater filming in the Bahamas. And there's also picture of the 'Flying Fish' in what seems to be a test run in Nassau harbour. The last picture give a glimse of the cocoon and 'the third Disco Volante' a yacht named 'Natoya'.

Thank you very much to for letting us use the pictures.
