    I was glued to this series when I was very young. I felt it was the first ship that really made sense. This model, of wood, (unrealized paper) is a gem. I bet it would get a fortune on EBAY! It is priceless though, as it is the only one, and it's beautiful.

    Nice model! Remember watching it as a kid. I found episodes on YouTube and re-watched several. Some of the Gerry Anderson series are available to watch for free on the new Yahoo View. Most if not all of the series that were on the free HULU before they ended it. I watched 4 episodes of Captain Scarlet this week.
