Tank from "Space: 1999"
is an exact replica of the studio scale model of the Primary Defense Tank
in the episode "The Infernal Machine" on the Gerry Anderson production
of "Space: 1999" and is an accurate duplicate right down
to the kitbashed parts used by the builder of the
original studio miniature.
measures about 14 inches long at 1/24th scale and utilizes a commercial
tank kit for the chassis, complete with suspension and individually linked
tracks. The radar dish is moveable and the gun is positionable horizontally
and vertically. The chassis is motorized with twin motors, so it is suitable
for radio control.
to Chris Trice and Andrew Frampton for the information and technical assistance
that helped me to create this extremely accurate replica.
