Enjoy!           Cheers, Pete

You are very welcome, takes me back to when my dad bought me the original kit (early 60's) , just love the rocket booster sounds. ( Hope they recovered the sled's afterwards otherwise there must be one hell of pile of them over that hill ;) !)

Hi there!

Mr. Kallisti:-   What's white and pointy and had good looking Birds* ladies flying them?       *(Sorry, PC in the 60's but not today!)

 

Mr. Yorkshireman:- On yes, I do remember Space Patrol, with the gyroscope-shaped Space Station with the sentry robots walking past the end of the corridors - scared the life out of Me!I

 

Cheers, Pete

I thought it was just me behind that cushion! It was still compulsive viewing though.
