Matthew Chambers has been working on a project connected to 'The Girl Who Was Death' a Corgi Diecast Car Prisoner Special Gift Set inspired by the episode. This is what Matt had to say about the project.
“All the parts have been acquired to restore a Corgi Elan and that's been painted waiting re-assembly only.
The Corgi Jaguar is waiting for a topcoat and both are waiting for number plate decals. The plates are the difference with making them as good a match to the episodes Car Scenes as I can get. Usually I restore Matchbox cars at the smaller scale but neither car was available from Matchbox, both available from Corgi who also have a lot of this sort of Gift Set pairings. I'm not able to get a suitable box made which is beyond my scope but I may try and think of some display element for them to sit on.
I did notice you have some interest in diecast cars from reading your site sections. I was hoping to find out a bit more about Justine Lord's involvement in the episode and did note she has attended The Prisoner Conventions recently. I have watched the Prisoner and had a keen interest since a re-run in the late 70's.
I did mirror polish and mask the bumpers on the E Type but couldn't get the mask line to not pull at the surrounding paintwork hence what you see is a second re-spray on the upper casting and a decision not to use silver detail. I could try it just happens to be a difficult casting in that respect so for now erred on the side of caution partly because the Lotus also has/had no trim detail.”
Thank you Matt for sharing this with me and my readers.
Be seeing you
