Default Marineville kits and bits used

would like to gather together as much info of kit parts used on the marineville set, dont worry Im not making a scale replica, its mainly idle interest

we know that the rocket towers are revell and the power plant is vollmer bits, but its other things like the circular radar buildings, security gate and even fences etc.

Is the security hut and white strip fencing "Scalextric" ? I think there's a degree of forced perspective in this picture so nearer things may be bigger than the usual 00 scale stuff

Default No of-fence....

Great thread, Stingray is my favourite of the older shows...

The fence wire looks like gauze bandage.

Keep posting the pictures, I have never seen most of them

The model of Marinville dos'nt look verry big due to the machbox cars on the set.

I could make a studio scale version of Marineville base out of model kit parts, balsa wood and artists borard.

yeah I like the film can lid used for the paint, noticed that in a few behind the scene shots, looks like he's dropped the brush in it too as there is loads on it, I used something similar when working on my model railway project, certainly helps.

Eric Backman in the middle I think too. Although not a building or whatever I love that old Matchbox BP truck. Had one as a kid and still do. A bit battered now but always played with it alongside my Anderson Dinkys. I once heard it was based on a real vehicle. Anyone know if that is the case?

If you go into your local branch of "The Works" discount book seller you will find that they have a pile of books entitled "A Source Book of ... whatever". If you can find the "Commercial Vehicles" one there's a picture of the real vehicle. Believe it or not the bit that looks like the radiator grille is actually the entrance doors to the cab!

EDIT. Just found a pic on the web. Scroll down to find it

thanks for the link to the real tanker, looks great, Ive had one for years too, along with the matchbox trucks in the london airport, I think they where the first things I got many years ago after my dad recognised them from Thunderbirds which is why I wanted them.

I like the converted one in Stingray, I want to convert my one like this one day, maybe if its released on Blueray.

That is a great link and photo 'Steve'! Appreciate your efforts tracking an image down too. Bloody amazing looking vehicle isn't it. If you never knew you'd think "Blimey! Looks like something from an old Gerry Anderson show" I guess in a way it was. A little bit like a Spectrum Tracker vehicle from 'Manhunt' in a way as well. Thanks mate.

Back to the original question. Is that possibly the roof off the Airfix signal box on top of the security hut?

The sentry post huts look as if they are pretty much straight from the box Vollmer kit 5735. There's also a similar high level one which I picked up a while back - number 5737.
