September 11th 2016,
I'm looking through toy vehicles related to Gerry Anderson TV productions and then I start looking at Sky Diver from the TV series UFO which I watched as a child and the production lasted from 16 September 1970 – 24 July 1971. This vehicle is a submarine with an aircraft attached to its nose that detaches and flies. And I started to think about how this connected with the ideas that I was having about the painting which I thought had elements of planes fused to submarines integrated along with the Fisher Price Family Airport toy set.
