Art of Thunderball - Part 2

I always loved the underwater battle in Thunderball. It was captured perfectly by Frank McCarthy for the "Look up, look down, look out" campaign. There are three interesting variations to the illustration:

1 is the original, used in most of the posters by Frank McCarthy.

2 shows the underwaterbattle from the reversed angle, the bad guys in the front. This comes from the Thunderball board game published by Milton Bradly in 1964.

3 is taken from a French poster: It's the reversed scenario with Connery superimposed on top.

Does anyone have other variations of this?
