The 5 foot (163cm) long Ultra Probe was the seen in the fly-pasts during the journey to the planet Ultra. It was twice the size of the smaller model and half the size of the larger, incomplete, model (which was comprised only the command module, forward neck and front part of the cylinders).

Kit parts include the Tamiya Kit 1:35th Scale Sd.Kfz.232 Schwerer Panzerspähwagen 8-Rad "Afrika-Korps" (No.35297, released in 1974).

The details on the model are quite different from the other two models, although on screen this isn't visible. The rear engine bells were made from tea dispensers. Photos thanks to Phil Rae.
