Default Spectrum Detector Van

Actually in the episode it is referred to as a Tracking Vehicle.

Scratchbuilt 1/35 scale.

Great model making and photography as usual, but wasn't this vehicle painted blue in the series?

Nope. Definitely green.

I'm sure that you're right, but this is the image and colour that I remembered.

The photo is just a badly printed image and the other one is a drawing which has probably used that image as a starting point so you can't place any store on that.

Here are some more video grabs direct from the DVD.

As I said, I am sure that you are right. I've not seen that series in years and so it's funny how the memory plays tricks.

Great job and spot-on with the colour. Nice choice too

Many thanks. It has been on my To Do list for a while. The only Spectrum vehicle I don't have a decent example of is the SPV, Very difficult model to recreate, but since no-one else seems to be going to do one, guess I will have to attempt it - eventually!
