Default My re-painted Shado 2's...

Hi all,

I know they're not standard colour but I wanted a change, when I first got them they weren't in very good condition...

Twins...: -

I've no idea why the covers are different, the interior is slightly different too...











Rockets were missing, so now have laser cannons...



No tracks came with them so made my own...



Hope you like, going to be working on my Dinky Eagles next...

Please le me know what you think, (good & bad)...

Andy...

Those are AWESOME and very authentic looking. UFO is one of my favourite sci-fi series.

You might get people shouting about the colour not being right, but not me.
I like it and quite feasible for forest locations.

And you do what you like, not what others like.
Good work.
I'm away to start on mines soon actually.
Just the boring proper colour though.

You can pick up missiles online for them.
Just look up spares for Dinky's

Well, the colour of the Original studio models was Ford Arctic Blue, which is more of a silver with a slight hint of blue

Custom Mobiles Cool!

Makes a bit more sense than Silver-Blue.

Nice Job Andy!

Andy...
The one with the flat roof is the rare original issue.
Apparently they had difficulties with the roof not staying flat when handled in the factory. The grids were added to add strength and stop warping.
