SHADO's first line of defence is Moonbase which can launch a flight of
spacecraft, each equipped with an anti-UFO missile.
On Earth SHADO has submarines designated 'Skydiver' which can launch 'Sky' jet
fighters to combat the UFOs. On land, tracked and armed Mobiles can be deployed
anywhere in the world. As if all that high tech hardware wasn't enough, the
people running SHADO have nice cars too!
On these pages we'll be taking a look at models of the various vehicles from
the Gerry Anderson UFO TV series - toys, kits and our own computer graphics.
Fortunately, although SHADO is a top secret organisation, there are lots of
nice toys and models of the vehicles available.
Dinky Toys produced a few nice diecast UFO toys in the 1970s. In the early 21st century Product Enterprise produced
their own range of UFO models. During the same period, a finely detailed and very comprehensive collection
of UFO 'candy toys' was produced by Konami.
Plastic model kits have been produced by Japanese manufacturers, and there are also resin and white metal kits produced
by various small kit manufacturers.
