Spectrum Pursuit Vehicle.

Recommended Posts

My child hood memories are of programmes like "Thunder Birds" "UFO" & "Captain Scarlet"

 

These shows were full of fantastic designs, such as Thunder Bird 2, SHADO Mobiles & Interceptors, and of course, The SPV, or Spectrum Pursuit Vehicle.

I have had the Dinky SPV for years and recently I cam across "Studio 2 Models".

They make limited run garage kits of  a number of models from these Gerry Anderson series, all to "Studio Scale".

 

This is the SPV.

Its resin & fibreglass.

It is no "shake & bake " kit, and requires a lot of work to get it together.

The interior is scratch built, having to cut the door out first.

It is painted in the same car paint as used on the original studio kit.

Excellent work.  Like you, those shows were part of my childhood.  But I could never work out why the driver of this vehicle faced backwards. :hmmm:

Apparently to reduce any chance of injury in case of a crash. (RAF transports have their passenger seats facing backwards for this reason).

Not to sure about the RAF's present transport aircraft but i only remember the VC10 C.Mk1 and K2/3 having rear facing seats. Timmy Tristar and Hercules had forward and side facing respectively. Not been on the new aircraft so cannot comment on them.
