want to Build Stingray ___________ Back
|I have received countless emails over
the last 15 years from fans wanting to build a model,
static or radio-controlled, of the Gerry Anderson classic
The email always asks 'Do I have plans?'
Well the answer is that I did not use a plan to make my model as I just modified a fibreglass casting using measurements obtained from photographs. So I don't have one myself, but my friend Phil Rae did draw a pretty decent plan many years ago which was published in the Anderson fan magazine S.I.G.
With the courtesy of Phil here is his plan, together with a few other bits and some odds and ends
from the internet. I wish you well with your build.

Stingray plans used to build the models - courtesy of Anderson
A better scan is on the back page of the old Gerry Anderson magazine 'Century 21' issue 5.
|Below - an original sketch/plan of the small one-man Aquasprites that sit in the sides of Stingray and can detach. This plan is from an unknown source on the internet, possibly re-posted from an auction house sale? Apologies to the person who took it for not giving credit here.|
|I hope these scans are of use to
people hoping to build models of Stingray.
