looks like something from the Ann Summers catalogue , that has been severely used by the wife , and has seen better days ! :-)

Yep it's the Iron Mole.
Didn't manage to snare the real one (I did try) I'm going to have to build my own.
I think the diving bell come out ok so I'm going to try this.

I saw the original model back when the film was on release. It was on the back of a truck, parked outside the odeon cinema in Brighton.
Wasn't there an acronym for the vehicle in the film?
