    This is a scratchbuilt second generation SHADO Mobile I built for the Eagle Transporter Forum "Gerry Anderson build". The idea of the contest was to design and build a craft that would fit into a Gerry Anderson Show. I have posted some pics on this forum last year. but have since undertaken additional detailing and weathering...so this is now the finished item (there or there abouts, still the windscreen wipers to add)

    The SHADO Mobile needed to be replaced with something more attack minded. This is the SHADO M.A.V ( Mobile Attack Vehicle ) to take the fight to the incoming alien ships.

    Hope you like it.

    That looks fantastic mate. Could easily fit into the series. Job well done.

    Indeed, clean the rust from the launch tubes...but whatever else you may do, keep the mud on the treads, that looks awesome!:thumbsup

    Thanks people....rust cleaned from inside tubes, smoke added to front and back of tubes and windscreen wipers added. I think I can say that this is now officially finished. First model actually finished since being a modeller at 16!!!!!

    Got lots of nearly finished models...must crack on and finish them. Thunderbird 1 diorama to be finished next.

    Will post a few last pics of the MAV changes.

    Isn't this a great forum...just love the quality work on it. Lots to aspire to.
