Laser Tank from "Space: 1999"

 This 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.


The model 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.
Special thanks to Chris Trice and Andrew Frampton for the information and technical assistance that helped me to create this extremely accurate replica.
