Stop Motion Vehicle Identified



     The video in my previous post featured a sequence in which two men in an armored vehicle are menaced by stop motion creatures. The vehicle appeared to be a repainted and slightly redressed version of the U59 explosives transporter from the Gerry Anderson TV series Joe 90. Japanese model company Tamiya had released a kit of this vehicle which they referred to as the Wildcat. This kit appears to be the basis of the vehicle seen in the video. Special thanks to my good friend Mr. Bulloch for bringing this to my attention. I don't own the Tamiya kit, but I DO have the small Konami model. Enjoy!
