Something for the Weekend #14

Well hello there!
 
Here is the lovely Linda Lusardi from back in the day when she was a page 3 girl in The Sun newspaper.  This is a cropped version of the full image because we're meant to be admiring the equally lovely space-wear and saving the internet from its self, one pair of tits at a time.
 
Linda is sporting one of the space helmets from Superman II...
Which as we've previously established was originally made for Moon Zero Two over a decade earlier.
 
Now I've a fairly good idea where this one ended up, which is here....

...although if anyone knows where it went in between times, to pick up the repaint, I'd love to know.

I've always assumed than anyone that knows of my blog will already be aware of David Sisson's excellent site where the final happy chapter of that particular prop can be discovered along with lots of other wonderful things but if you don't then you need to jump on that link and get over there asap.

colour me jealous

  2. Linda's nice, it's also good to see you've tracked down a surviving prop, do you ever consider contacting Angels to see see if they know anything about some of the others?

    1. Sometimes I would like to imagine I'm zeroing in on them slowly... but other times and most realistically I'm guessing most of the cool ones (UFO/Moon Zero 2) are long gone, dead in a skip.
