That was from the first film, which I was crazy about. Although looking back at it, I don't think they could have come up with a more convoluted way of putting that spaceship together if they'd tried.

That's the current thinking, everything was "Fab" in the 1960s. I think it all started with The Beatles.

He's right, it would make a "Fab" model.  On the down side, then he'll want you to make it shoot missiles and fly.

Twas indeed a trick question, FAB was the "hip" word at the time (even before the Beatles) so Gerry used it....


Trivia: the full size FAB 1 was built by.........Ford, and RR gave special permission to use the "Sprit of Ectasty " for the series and the full size car  :-))


Tis still great....


And then we filmed Terahawks.............not so great but fun to work on  :-)

I always though it was 'Fully Acknowledged Broadcast'. Can't remember where I read it or if someone told me.

Sorry to say that although it fits nicely with Fully acknowledged broadcast,  FAB does not stand for anything.
