Cardboard model


Did anyone else ever get the cardboard model of Fireball XL5?
I think it came with the cetury 21 comic.
You had to cut it out and slot it together, I still remeber running around the garden with the model.
I have just found this site, and that I can buy the DVD's, my wife and kids will think I am sad, but I am going to buy at least one set.
Before I get them, my other main memories are of the launch sequence and the seperation.
Obviously the theme tune, stick in your mind, but I also remember, a stange tune when the robot was on screen.

LOL! YES! I had it. I remember being very proud of it too. :)

I had the plastic Fireball XL5 toy with detachable Fireball Junior and launchable missiles. Because of my interest in the series, when friends and I discussed the upcoming new series Star Trek, I mused whether or not the saucer section detached because I hadn't learned of the transporter yet.
