Above & Below: Original Sergeant Major Zero prop in the pictures on the left, and Space Sergeant 101 on the right. Photos taken at Andercon, a Gerry Anderson Convention. The Battlehawk is my replica build, sadly the original was reportedly destroyed.
Props are made using spun aluminium shells, with centre sections made from brass, and are very heavy. The identity markings are on detachable panels so that the props could play different characters during the series.
