The Scarlet annual contained three excellent cutaways - The Clam Sub, first seen in the episode ’White as Snow’ , The Hovercraft seen in ’Traitor’ , and The Radar Truck first seen in ‘Manhunt‘.
However as the series was really about the transfer of brain patterns by scientific gizmo’s and computers, rather than fantastic vehicles so the annual carried some better cutaways of Culver Bay cottage and Mac’s laboratory showing the BIG RAT and the RAT TRAP.
We already know about the re used Zero X artwork in the Project Sword annual , but I also liked the traditional cutaway of the Moonbus .
By 1970 TV21 had swallowed up Joe 90: Top Secret and had changed beyond recognition. City Magazines published a second Joe 90 annual and the last TV21 annual which would maintain some of the original continuity, along with a combined Thunderbird and Captain Scarlet annual which did come across as a last gasp, the latter containing a breakdown of the Cloudbase Computer, and Dr Fawn’s Medic- Bay.
So there you have it, some of my favourite cutaways from the world of Century 21. I hope you enjoyed them.
