It is difficult to gauge the scale.
Is that one of the old WAVE model kits?

Very good, most jealous, however would have been better if a UFO had swooped down over the lake, then the interceptor launched and the UFO shot down   :} :} :} {-) {-) %% %% but apart from that great model and video..  Oh and then for Ed Straker to pop round the lake for Lunch..

Ran for 1 series of 26 1 hour episodes, was filmed in 69/70 broadcast 170 uk and 1972 in the US. i'm sure if it was a scale model of real ship dates wouldn't so vague. :} :}

totally correct first aired 1970 but production started 1969 and it was a iconic 60's concept by Gerry Anderson so I went with 60's on the nameplate
