Greg - Check out You Tube; I think there's plenty of Fireball XL-5 episodes there (I've watched a few of them).....

I have a copy of the Dan Dare 1950s Annual that was published about 10 years ago or so, and it has several pages from the magazine that show the ship. Look for some images attached...

I remember, barely, watching Fireball XL-5 as a be-diapered toddler. Great theme song! I loved the show, but never got any of the toys.

One of the members of LUNAR had a bunch of elaborate Dan Dare spaceship models. I recall that the cones were made of some kind of composition material. Paper mache sort of stuff.
