    Well,

    Sort of...

    In case anyone (doubt it) does not know the Thunderbirds, here's the intro from the original series



    For the record, the live action movie that came out was....:stinkyfeet:

    First off, TB 5, 3 & 1 are quite easy builds so no build thread, I will post building progress when I start 2 & 4.

    So, I completed Thunderbird quite a while ago, and here she is!

    Thunderbird 3 came next;

    Thanks Zathros, I was also hooked!

    @Revell-Fan ; TB2 was also my favourite, I loved the way the pods were "emergency" specific and the way TB2 would be loaded & then launch. I must have spent countless hours trying to build TB2 from lego when I was younger! :)

    I would have married Tin Tin, and had Marionette Hybrid Children. I would have needed many shop tools though, but I do have them now, Hmmm...................., nah, I'd have to make a Tin Tin first, and the wife would divorce me for adultery, or lunacy. :)

    She would have been poplar though. I'm sure we wood have problems but we could stick it out. I wonder what her in laws wood be like. I imagine mentioning certain materials wood be like walking the plank. Still, though, who wouldn't want to nail her!! I would Pledge, at least a can of year, or all I had, to her. We would have named out kids Woody and Willow. The best kind of Willow, you know, rhymes with a cat (wait, doesn't rhyme, it's another name for cats, yes, feline, Willow Feline, maybe Pussy Willow would be better! (Had to go there). :)

    Think we can branch onto a different topic? Not to varnish over what you've said though... :)
