ah, thanks very much. The blog is a labour of love and I'll keep doing it as long as I love it (rather than labouring over it) - I've got plenty of stuff lined up for the months ahead so there's plenty more to look forward to. Thanks again.

More Dan Dare merchandise - this time it's a 'gyro jeep' - which sounds great but looks, er, less than great. So, pretty typical of a lot of tie-in merchandise then and now!
