Lego UFO S.H.A.D.O

It’s the 1970s, Britain is mostly on strike and painted brown, and the space race is raging. Cue some televisual escapaism in the form of UFO, a Gerry Anderson production (he of Thunderbirds and Captain Scarlet fame) set in the futuristic year 1980, but using real actors rather than puppets, and – at least if our Google research is accurate – featuring a variety of tight-fitting tops.

This was their vehicle of choice, the S.H.A.D.O tracked command centre, and it’s been recreated in mini-figure form by TLCB favourite Andrea Lattanzio aka Norton74, complete with a fully detailed interior. You can check it out at Andrea’s photostream, plus you can read our interview with the builder as part of the Master MOCers series by clicking here.

    I have several UFO models built in Lego: two Mobiles, SHADO Moonbase, and the Moonbase Defence missile tank.
    Work in progress is the Markers Universal Mobile Transporter (Tractor Unit done, Trailer 90% done), also the SID satellite, and a couple of Interceptors which are at the “collect the bricks” stage.
