Underground travel cylinder

Underground Travel Cylinder
This is the underground travel cylinder used by hostile underwater aliens to gain access to Marineville in The Invaders. This direct ancestor of the Thunderbirds Jet Mole was made from a turned wooden dowel with screw detail made from thin sheet metal. The underground travel cylinder was probably mounted on top of an electric drill bit and pushed into the styrofoam set floor from below by an off-camera technician.
