Sam Loover's Car by Marian87 Sam Loover's Car by Marian87
I modeled this after a car in a 1960s tv show, Joe 90 made by Gerry Anderson.

I watched the show and it was pretty cool. This car and its design stuck in my mind, so I scoured the internet and found a few resources that allowed me to make a model of it, though
not a very accurate.

TV shows always have the coolest cars.  This one is beautifully styled, but the Gerry Anderson cars I grew up with were the FAB-1 from Thunderbirds and Ed Straker's car from UFO.

Aw, I understand...:hug:...We all get in a slump sometimes.  I still look forward to seeing the finished product when you get around to it.

This is a really cool design; I love the curves and how they flow nicely towards that huge spoiler!!

I love the concept of taking a lesser known tv car and bringing it to life with such fidelity. Quality stuff, and great fun!

Cripes this brings back memories, Joe 90. Thats one series that I seem to have neglected while aquiring discs of the old Gerry Anderson shows. Super looking model, congratulations :clap:

Nope, nothing original on it, it's pretty faithful to the show, but thanks for leading me to another car worth modeling. Hope I can find some blueprints of it :D
