Dinky's SHADO Interceptor for Gerry Anderson's UFO. We never understood why it was green, but it was still spectacularly awesome. In addition to Thunderbirds toys, My brothers and I had a few Dinky vehicles from Captain Scarlet and Joe 90 as well, even though none of us had seen the shows at that point.
Captain Scarlet was a terrific, very popular TV series that featured puppets. These shows were popular in the 70s with Thunderbirds and Stingray being two other very, very popular shows.
