interstingly, the grill bit inside the main intakes, lots of people including well known modelmakers make this part from scratch,I found this as it was indeed a kit part and when I offered it up to the model, it fitted perfectly which meant that i got the intake shope right, that was a delightful sigh of relief!

Wow! did you have to have it specially mixed or was it straight off the shelf?
If it was the latter please could you tell us what the name of the colour is?

Very nice Sean!

Good photos too - I like the way the background gives the impression that the SPV is driving along very fast!

no problem mate wasnt having a strop jus mentioning that I had mentioned it in another thread and it was quite a while ago, I think its in the ford section in Holfords, i will be passing a store tomorrow, if i have time i will pop in and check to see if I'm right. But you see how it changes colour, Derek was amazing with colour, even being colour blind, wonder if people on the forum know that he was colour blind, I only found out after he died.

Derek certainly liked the colour ------Fireflash looks the exact same colour--- the Spectrum Radar Vans and of course,Zero X are also (I'm sure there are other examples too) a metallic light blue.

no I think not, fireflash was a very dark blue, the spectrum radar vans were green and Zero X was also a darker blue, in fact it was called kingfisher blue.
The SPV was the only vehicle throughout all of the anderson seies to be sprayed this colour.

I stand corrected Sean

Zero X has, as you said,been attributed to be Kingfisher blue, but what Kingfisher blue????

Default Visit with Sean Robinson

Finally I managed to make enough time to visit with Sean Robinson and the Straker's Car replica. I am not often gob smacked but....


Palm Trees as used on Bond Die another Day rescued for a TB2 diorama project in planning.








Sean and his 88" Eagle CM

















A 66" Eagle WIP, just for fun.




Straker's Car, The jig has been modified with wheel spats closing off the wheel arch and providing a definite edge to work from.




Straker's Car, another view of the walling up process.














































SPV, wheel hubs and the masters for the rubber tyres in several scales.




Strakers Car, Preparations for final moulding with sections being walled up.






Tony Graysmark doing what he loves, he has worked on 2001 (he carved and sculpted the original Moonbus and EVA pod), Batman, Harry Potter, Titanic and the filming sets, Firefox and many more.




A Mike Trim rocket from Agent Crush, the assorted textures and layers of silver is typical in his designs.








Casting from the production mould is a 9 foot Shuttle from Moonraker.






A plug for a new version of his 66" Eagle CM, he wasn't happy with the current one...!


I am in process of editing this thread and will add entries as time allows.

Thanks to Sean Robinson and Tony Graysmark for the warm welcome and generosity with their time - what a day..!

Thanks for the pics, Bernie, I especially love the "redesigned" mobile. Really very nice. I would love to see more pics of the "rocket" with the Eagle like nose.

I couldn't put it better myself, the pictures are fantastic!

It's great to see vehicles from Agent Crush, including Mike Trim's rocket from the brilliant launch sequence. The ship with the 'Eagle' type nose seems to be something else again though.

The green 'Mobile' type vehicle reminds me of a small picture going back some years now of CATT (I think) from Aquanoughts, but as it looks shiny and new, is it something coming down the line?

Thanks to all for the pictures.

When time allows, I will be heading back to Sean's workshop and will ask really nicely if I can photomap some of these props, this visit was a bit rushed.

Thanks for the nice comments, I love to share what I find and both Sean and Tony are such interesting people. As far as I know the green tank looks so new because Bill Pearson gave it a re-treatment adding extra detail, a new cabin and a new paint scheme, I am sure Sean said he did it over a weekend.

I will ask Sean to fill in more detail about some of the models, especially the white eagleish looking craft. I was a bit dazzed by everything, there were literally models in the rafters and under almost every bench....

Lastly, Straker's car is bigger than you think, it is a real presence but once off the jig it will actually be very low to the ground, every feature is a compound curve, it really is a truly beautiful car.
