Fellow Space toy fan WOTAN is on the blog: 'I have a number of toys that look like they could have fitted neatly into the Project Sword range. In the SWORD Annual there are a couple of vehicles that travel over or into water: the SEA SWORD* Hovercraft, DIVER 1 Submarine and the OCEANIA - a large transport vessel. This bears a striking resemblance to the Submarine Aircraft Carrier from Stingray (pic courtesy Kim Stevens). Did this ever make it into a toy ? I'm almost sure I have seen a toy version in dark blue plastic with a white upper hull and tiny silver planes?'
'Meanwhile, I have discovered a very real candidate for inclusion into my Sword fleet - the Atomic Submarine by Ranetta. This beauty is about 11 inches long and weighs a ton with the batteries in! Ive added paper sword decals and a little photoshoppery for effect!'
Nice one Wotan!
