Spectrum is Green! Even if the Car is Red

   Gerry Anderson's 1967 supermarionation series Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons was amazing!  The story centered around Spectrum, a wqorld security organization that finds itself at war with mysterious alien  force known as the Mysterons.   Captain Scarlet was a major departure from previous supermarionation series as the puppets featured here were constructed with much more human proportions.  For me it was the vehicles that really made the series great!  Here is the Konami trading kit for the Spectrum Patrol car.  In the context of the show, the vehicle didn't have any special gadgets or abilities.   It was certainly a  great design though.  The Konami trading kit is well detailed and a nice addition to any Captain Scarlet collection.  Enjoy!
