That was fun... loved the way the woman was applying the decals to the small jet... there I am trying my hardest not to get air bubbles and wrinkles, and along comes Mrs Modelmaker and zips it off.

The flying car was enormous... I had no idea it was THAT big, wow.

Thanks for sharing this... it was fascinating

It is elsewhere on the forum, but still a delight to watch again.

Mac's Car from Joe 90 is actually quite a complicated machine, it has to perform several technical movements each with intricate mechanisms to operate all that motion.

Seaview has attempted to recreate that large model, he has a static version for sale if anyone is interested, PM me and I'll put you in touch.

The Joe 90 car is a great model. I wonder where the model is today.
Does Seaview’s version work in the same way as the one in the film clip?

Mac looks alive sitting in the cockpit of the jet car.

I saw Mac's car in Selfridges department store in London around 1968. It had a sign on it "Please Do Not Touch" It sat on a shelf with its wheels retracted.
What a model. to eleven year old it looked huge.
