Default Greetings

I have been a Gerry Anderson fan since I was a little boy. I have fuzzy memories of catching Capt. Scarlet, UFO & Space:1999 on saturday afternoons. I first saw UFO one day when my dad was channel flipping. Once I saw all that cool space/vehicle hardware I was absolutely and completely utterly hooked. I esp. thought the guy with white hair and his office being underground a film studio was super cool. Now that I'm grown I have all the Thunderbirds, Space:1999(some), UFO, and Capt. Scarlet DVDs. Those were/are my favorite GA shows, but I like the earlier shows as well (Stingray, Fireball XL5...). I also have "Journey to the far side of the Sun" DVD as well. I like to pop in Capt. Scarlet DVD and watch an episode every now and then. Yes, I am a GA junky.

Living in the lower parts of NJ. When I was a kid channel 17 out of Philadelphia had Capt. Scarlet on in the afternoons and then UFO of friday nights IIRC. Later on the began to broadcast Space:1999 during weekdays. Wish I could relive all that again.

Welcome aboard mate, you'll fit right in.

Do you have any collectables or models you have made?

Yea. I have two "left hands" if you know what I mean, not good at building models like some of the rest of probably are. However, I did manage to put together an Eagle Transporter model that a friend gave to me few years ago.
