I never saw the cg version of Captain Scarlet but I have fond memories of his Supermarionation productions from the sixties and of course Space 1999 in the seventies. Sad day. :(

Oh this saddens me to NO END - RIP, Gerry.

I loved all of his stuff - the vehicle models are so inspirational.

Hear me Earthlings! I used to have a friend in London as a kid who's father worked for him and as a cartoonist for ... Whizzer and Chips. His sandpit was full of all the wooden mocks :(

A good innings for my Old Boss,
A Whole page for a Obituary in the The Times
Newpaper.Nice!

I have dateline memories, models & drying paint
while being loaded onto the van at Bourne End
to be ferried and dressed at the Slough 'Studios'

I hope he is with Derek Meddings planning something new?

(I must contact the modelers -T Birds)
