    Thanks for the interesting info,i left a commision bid of 80gbp on the gun which included a dan dare film cell and viewer set and another item so about as much chance as winning the lottery.The auction was Saturday but i didn't phone for price realised,so will find out Monday.The gun was the red crescent one made of alluminium,as shown on here raygun site.Wish i had known earlier about it's rarity i would have left a larger bid but nevermind.

    Hi,no sorry but i can tell you it is red and made of alluminium and is the British version of the Hiller gun it also came with a Dan Dare decal version.I have seen it on the raygun website.cheers.

    What is a fair price for a boxed atomic jet gun in good condition with original box.Cheers.

    Hi again,managed to re- attach drive spring and screen now revolves but it's action is very laboured.The rollers are not slipping,but the mechanism seems to be binding somewhere and this is what put a strain on the drive.If anyone has an idea where this mechanism usually binds i would be gratefull and would oiling help.thanks.

    Thanks again,it looks very similar to net curtain wire.

    Just 1 more question.Does the drive wire have a central core,or does the whole wire rotate?.thanks.ps got the front off cleanly with no problem and the wire has come adrift.

    Yes i have done a bit of electronics soldering and pipe soldering but not for a while so any tips are appreciated.
  12. davros added a post in a topic: Alps Tv Spaceman Repair   


    That would be brilliant,cheers for that.What type of solder would you use,would the type used foy pipe joints do the job.

    Could anybody tell me if all the space scene related mechanism is accessible from the front.Also,if the drive wire has come adrift,can it be soldered with regular solder and iron?.thanks.

    Thanks for the welcome and information shared thus far.My robot is the battery op version and would really like to get him working again so anymore information would be brilliant.Thanks again for the info.ps which is the drive wire in the photo that was kindly posted and someone said it has to be seperated to open the body.Is it fastened to the body then?.cheers.

    Hi,just before i ask for your help,i must say what a brilliant site this is and as far as i can see the only one with a forum.I have been looking for a place like this for ages,so very glad to find it.So on to my request,i have read through most of the forums and searched for any information i can find but i would still like clearer info on fixing a non moving space scene in my otherwise mint alps tv spaceman.Could anyone tell me the likely cause and how i get to it.Will i just need to open the body,and what will i be looking for when i'm in there.Is their a tab under each of the circular bits of tin as well as the obvious ones.I am obviously a newbie to robot repair but leaving it as it is,is not an option and i am a practical person.I just need as much info as possible before "i go in".Thanks for any help you can give,and thanks for making this place so interesting. :D
