I have just taken delivery of a 3' model of Skydiver from Gerry Anderson's UFO.

 

It is made of resin & fibreglass.

It has come with a pair of water jets fitted so with some radio control gubbins added it will be patrolling my local boating lake in case of an alien attack.

Stay tuned! :)

I have been cutting holes in SkyDiver, (hopefully she'll still float!) :)

 

There was quite a large plug of resin to get through to open up the conning tower.

Well underway now!

Might get a primer coat on by the weekend :)

Wow! I was asked if I was going to float the kreiger floatplane I just built. I wasn't falling for that one.

So I admire your confidence by giving your build a bath. It looks great, and huge too.

So, what is the assembled length and what does it scale out at?

She's 3 foot long and 1/36th scale.

How cooler than sub-zero can you get?

 

The entire series is currently on Britbox along with a whole slew off other ITC programmes, if anyone is interested.

I kept meaning to come back to this one and finally succeeded tonight. It's come on since the primer and is looking really impressive.
