Spectrum Is Green







To be a child in the sixties  was to have your imagination given wings by Gerry Anderson: Supercar, Fireball XL5, Stingray, Thunderbirds, and Captain Scarlet rolled out like a drumbeat from 1961 to 1968.

As a tribute, I painted Capt Scarlet, Lt Green and Lt Yellow. Models from Crooked Dice.

Gerry Anderson died on 26th December, 2012.

  4. OK, sticking with supermarionation, though; what did F.A.B. stand for ?

  5. I vaguely remember Gerry Anderson being asked that. I think he said it stood for nothing. It was the cool word of the 60s (fabulous). The Beatles were the Fab Four.
