Sure do - loved them. Used to play at them (as well as General Jumbo) when I was around 4 or 5. Imagination is a wonderful thing. Kids don't seem to have it these days, nor an attention span longer than 10 seconds.
I vaguely recall these Iron Fish Kid. Such a neat but simple idea to turn fish shapes into subs! Its strange about attention spans these days. You would have thought that computer gaming would increase attention and focus!
Somewhere I have a newspaper cutting of a one-man sub type of craft, and it's practically a ringer for an iron Fish. If I ever find it I'll let you know.
Thanks Kid. That would be interesting. I'm on holiday at the mo.
Wow!This is really wierd.You see I DON'T remember them, but I know I HAVE seen them before, in a kind of subliminal way.Their image lies somewhere in my memory, but not in a 'registered' way. I probably haven't seen or thought about them since I read the read the annual as a kid. Maybe it was one of my cousin's books and not mine, so I couldn't re-see it frequently enough to log it properly.Amazing.I love this blog Woodsy! Sometimes it's close to time travel. Again, Wow!Mish.
Glad you enjoy the blog Mish. Its feedback like this that keeps me going!
Hell yeah - the Iron Fish and Q-Bikes closely followed by General Jumbo, that was '60's Beano adventure time for me! Always wished someone would make a model kit of the Iron Fish but never found one. Suppose I could always scratch build a couple - the older I get the more I live in the past!!!
Me too Mike, living in the past. Its familiar and understandable!
Yeah, I loved the Iron Fish strip. At a later stage their Dad upgraded the craft so that they could also fly... not unlike Supercar!
Flying fish! Wow! Now that's supercool Charlie! For some reason the riveting reminds me of Iron Man's first incarnation too!
Iron Man? Or do you mean Archie the Robot? Let's keep it British.
Rivets know no boundaries TerraN, only edges. Oddly enough I was reading Archie the other day. Why did the LION Annual go for the washed red ink for some of their strips? So hard on the yes!
