Stingray Annual


We never had THUNDERBIRDS in my area but I loved SUPERCAR, FIREBALL XL-5 and STINGRAY! In fact, some of my earliest surviving artwork (age 5) is of STINGRAY. In the US, of course, we never got these nifty British Annuals, releases slightly prior to the year itself. Here, from '65, is the '66 STINGRAY ANNUAL.
