    Ray Osrin (attributed) - Supercar #4 Cover Original Art (Gold Key, 1963). The Supercar is under attack from enemies on the ground and in the air -- will pilot Mike Mercury save the day? What do you think?! The Supercar was designed by the late Reg Hill for Gerry Anderson's 1960-62 Supermarionation TV series. It had eight rockets which, like the car's retractable wings, were electronically operated and could be controlled from afar, using a special remote-control device. When on land, or travelling roadways, Supercar didn't actually touch the ground, but instead hovered just off the surface. A periscope was used when it was necessary to dive under water. Aside from radar and sonar, the Supercar had a "Clear View" device which, via a cockpit display screen, allowed the pilot to see through such visual weather obstructions as clouds and storms. "Supercar" was the show that set the mold for all the Anderson productions that followed, including "Fireball XL-5," "Thunderbirds, "Stingray," and "Captain Scarlet." This beautifully streamlined design will make a spectacular wall piece for any Gerry Anderson Supermarionation aficionado, or any collector of beautiful painted original art. The image area is 13" x 17.5". The surface has seven "pulls" around the edges where tape was removed, but these do little to detract from the central image; otherwise the art is in Very Good condition. Supermarionation is go!
