Cheers Michel. Raumpatrouille Orion has been safely logged into the files awaiting its turn. I think you linked me some of these images before as examples of very large space helmets. I shall get round to it soon, I promise
more to come next year
I saw this a while ago, actually I thought I might've picked up link form here. It's a pretty good flick.
Michel sent me links before so possibly you did get to it from here. I've still to check it out or do a post about it yet.
I can definitely recommend Raumpatrouille, used to watch it on satellite in German years ago, and I do mean years ago. Funky series, with hot chicks in wigs, I think the costume designers at UFO might've been watching. My German's non existent, so we relied on a running translation, which she sometimes forgot to actually translate and it would come out in German, still highly entertaining though.
I watched a chunk of it on Youtube after commenting and it does look very good. I also thought it might have inspired the boys over at UFO a little.
I`ve found another obscure one,its called warp speed from 1981 and stars batmans adam westhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EnrGmtd8TnQ [46:42-49:40]
That looks all kinds of interesting, thanks
