Starcruiser

Whilst the likes of TV21 and Countdown have been scanned into digital format I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of scans of the Look-In Starcruiser comic strip?

We covered the Starcruiser strip in an early issue of Andersonic (4) with some original art drawn before Airfix made final modifications to Martin's model. I don't think the whole strip is online which is a shame.

I found this page, which has a comprehensive history of Starcruiser

http://www.technodelic.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/Upload02/Starcruiser01.htm

The scans are pretty low res though, but there are some of Martin Bower's concept sketches.

Also, if you click onto page 2 of the article at the bottom there's a piece about the history of the Airfix kit.

I vaguely remember Starcruiser and Gerry Anderson being on Runaround when Stan Bordman presented the show - again, only a low res b&w pic is given on page 2 of the article.

Many thanks for the suggestions, guys.
Really enjoyed the Andersonic article (as I do the mag on a regular basis).
After doing my own research I cannot find much more about Starcruiser on line, although I managed to pick up a copy of Starlog No. 21 in which Gerry Anderson discusses the Airfix model.
I know I used to have some of the Look In comics in question but it was far from a complete run. I may have to have a rummage in the bowels of my loft when (?) I get chance.

The Airfix kit was crap! Too boxed off, not enough curves
The protortype looked alot better
Love to see an updated model kit
