Konami UFO SHADO Lunar Carrier!

   It's time for another Konami trading kit from Gerry Anderson's SF drama UFO.  This time we have SHADO's very cool Lunar Carrier.  This was one of my favorite vehicles on the show.  A large VTOL lifting body that carried SHADO's lunar transfer vehicle (referred to in the series the Lunar Module) into the upper atmosphere where it would detach and travel to their moonbase.  This craft didn't feature in a lot of scenes, but it looked great when it did.  The orange paint job gave it a very distinctive appearance.
    The Konami trading kit is very nice.  It may be small, but it has a lot of detail which is indicative of Konami craftsmanship.  It even has a detachable Lunar Module which I'll feature in a separate article.  Enjoy!


  1. I certainly enjoy it. Konami traing kits really are top shelf!
