Some of the booty netted this half term holiday at boot sales and on the net. All interesting in one way or another. The old Dutch Prins Valiant comic is opened at the start of a Zero X strip.
Bill built a Thunderbird 7/ Project SWORD Beetle by Imai, which had been lying around for ages. It looks neat on an empty LP Moon Explorer box he kindly donated. Like many Imai models this one has a battery-operated remote control for forward and reverse motion.
Blue dog is just about to stretch and yawn its all so exciting!
The opened Thunderbird 7/ Beetle reveals a pull-back spring missile firing chute. One of the missiles is a small copy of the Project SWORD Booster Rocket. The model's labels have yet to go on.
