....  Check A-OK.....

Direct from Gerry Anderson's 1970 UFO Series..  A project to craft a UFO interceptor.  These spacecrafts were based on the moon and  were the first line of defense against "the aliens" - humanoids that extract body parts from abducted earthlings.

Dedicated to craftsmen around the world (specially followers of the popsicle mini-models series), the project was a little more difficult due to the less angular design of the spacecraft, not to mention tiny struts for the landing gear....

Step 1: Materials

Materials for this project were standard popsicle sticks and various sizes and shapes of toothpicks that can be purchased at your local supermarket.
That is crazy detailed! Nice job :) You should enter this into the <a href="http://www.instructables.com/contest/holidaygifts2012">Holiday Gifts Contest</a>!
Thanks! Will probably do that. I also hope to upload another one before the 28th. I hope I find the time within the next couple of weeks to document steps for posting.... Regards...
Dear Mr. Popsicle,<br> <br> Excellent job.<br> <br> I had an official Dinky toy version that fired the huge missile about 3&quot;.<br> <br> I had to go and have a look at a clip of the series.<br> <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8JVx6lfMru8" rel="nofollow">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8JVx6lfMru8</a><br>
Hi! Thanks for the link! Never thought I can watch a clip again after so many years. Skydiver and Sky One seems to be an interesting project. Will consider it in the future!!!
I was disappointed to get old enough to realise that Gerry Adams used the same sound effects through all of his series.... <br> <br>UFO <br> <br>Thunderbirds <br> <br>Space 1999?? <br> <br>May be others I can't recall..... <br> <br>Getting old enough to forget them too. <br> <br>Great videos when your a kid and the adult complexities are not in the way of wide eyed belief...
Excellent to find someone else who remembers the show. Used to be on SciFi and is available on DVD.
Thanks! And yes! Am also interested to view past episodes of the series.. I hope I can get it on DVD as well!!
This is Great! I just have to make one. I used to enjoy this show very much. UFO, I don't believe I have EVER seen a re-run of this show. I would like to watch it again, but since it is not on where I can find it, then I will just have to make this and dive deep into my memory. Thanks so much
Your Welcome! Will try to research on more sci-fi spacecrafts from the past and try to include in future projects...
wow! I thought it was normal sized till later when i saw how small it is.
