in a book The making of Star Trek 3 they addressed that issue(same way i belive Brain Jhonson did it) the wires were sprayed with a chemacil that turns the wires gray and unless the backdrop is white which would make them show (bule would be a good choice) using blue screen tech you can take the wires out hope this helps

Sorry, i never noticed your post before. It does help, thanks!

I'll be starting my project (ive got 6 moths to do it in) on Saturday. I'll have lots of model making, planing and building etc until I get round to the actual filming, but when i do start filming, i'll make sure I use the opportunity to take some movie shots of our gerry anderson models (TB2 flying over the sea is something i could do)

By the way does anyone have any ideas of how I could build a Mars landscape?

If I was building a Mars landscape, I'd use insulation foam cut into rock/cliff shapes and sand as the base. The whole thing can be dusted over with orangey/red spray paint (including the sand).

Not sure about the 'sky' colour though...

Here's a genuine Derek Medding technique we still use. Rough cut your rock face from polystyrene, damp it down with one of those hand operated pump action plant water misters and then throw cement powder at it. You can keep repeating the process as long as you like until all the polystyrene is covered. Let the stuff set and it dries rock hard.
