Another design begging to be realised as a SWORD toy was the ANT vehicle from the Sword Annual. Clearly based on the Grumman Molab project for a long range lunar rover, this could have been a great addition to the fleet of lunar vehicles repurposed to travel the scarred Earth after the big one of 3031. Or as seen in the mocked up photo of the toy, your back garden! The basis of this design is obviously the Grumman Molab, the photograph shown here was used as the basis of a colourful illustration for the comic story series 'Wee Willie Winkie' by John Worsley / Robert Hodgson in Look and Learn in the sixties. I 'borrowed' the artwork for the box illustration from www.lookandlearn.com/characters/index.php?c=weewilliewinkie - a fabulous resource with a searchable archive of illustrations. The 'toy' photo is taken from an old photo I had to hand of a model I made some years ago using a Kinder egg container, some Capsela parts and various household odds and ends. Its actually about 10 inches long, but sadly not motorised!
