UFO and its wide range of gorgeous vehicles have been an inspiration to LEGO® enthusiasts for many years. In particular, there are some very detailed and impressive brick-built models of the Moonbase Interceptor and the SHADO Mobiles out there which I simply drool over because of how big and complex they are. These builds are normally produced at minifigure scale or thereabouts. But instead of following the same path as the dedicated LEGO® and UFO fans that came before me, I decided that working on the vehicles in microscale would be the best approach to bring the SHADO fleet to life on my shelves.

This week, Jack and Katherine dive under the sea and join Troy, Phones, and Marina of the World Aquanaut Security Patrol for a voyage of discovery. Stingray is a personal favourite of Jack’s, so what will Katherine have to say about this Supermarionation classic?
