    Thanks guys, my all time dream in my youger days was trundling around in a mobile, wouldn't have to worry much about traffic and red lights:p
    Phil my old mate, have you seen what you have started with this thread, over 7,000 views so far and many more to come. I totally agree with you about the Thunderbirds, I think i'll stick with the originals, someday i hope to build thunderbird 2 and the pod with TB 4 in, but i need more lessons, mate:thumb:
    Sir Gary, your interceptor is getting very tempting:twisted:
    Pete, the way you are going you will have your own Airbus to fly to Dubai next time you go:cool:
    All the best

    Hi Mick the TB2 with pod and TB4 are very scary looking models,right up there with the Super Eagle model I think what the World needs is a TB2 in the more user friendly style of Sir Pilsworth,with the straight forward construction of a Pilsworth model and the accurate yet simple to achieve look of a Pilsworth model...DAMN IT!! if only we knew the name of someone that could design a kit like this!.:twisted:

    Phil, yet again i have to agree with you, Sir Pilsworth's designs are more realistic for modellers whilst still being spot on for accuracy:thumb:, I think there is some one on this forum who has got such design skills, i think his name is Gary the Master/saint/dream-maker, or something like that:twisted:

    Oh Lummy - TB2

    Hi there kind sir. Very nice... i think you should put your signature to read "Pilsworth - Master in the art of paper model design and Master of Teasing" sign1

    I mean... come on, you can't just leave that in your head ! please for the love of humans who make paper stand up as something more than just a flat lifeless entity - pray CONTINUE :mrgreen:

    Stingray goes gloss and appears soon THEN Seaview my friend :thumb:

    Hi guys:wave: how we doing?.Gary a TB2 in your rather more modeller friendly style would be very welcome if you can fit it into your very busy schedule.Mick have you done it yet? The Mobile is it done? are there more photos?..he he he I knew it would be fun to do some pesteringannounce1.I have spent since the wee hours of the morning carefully adding foil card to the build of the Stingray..great idea I thought..WRONG.. looks awful far to shiny so its back to plan F or so I think wall1Ho Hum.

    I hope when I get her done its comes out reasonable,it's not so much putting extra effort in in more having very little time so I have to try all my lunatic ideas in one go!.

    Yo there ya all... Seems like you're having fun with your builds :thumb: Phil where was you going to use the foil ? I have got 5 skins on thus far after a re-start and then a re-start it seems to me that the gloss paper really doesn't like to be GLUED and every little imperfection shows up like a green bean in a pile of red ones :curse: I gave one the stamp of perfection.... my size 8 foot ! wall1 at the stage she's at now she might just about make it to here within the next few days :confused: Looks like you're a happy bunny with your 2 wheel machine riders :thumb: i wish i could say the same with my 4 wheel brigade :cry:
    Mick... glad you are collecting lots of little triangles.... i had so many after the re-re-restart i could have gone to several weddings sign1 be glad to see your vehicle on these marvelous pages of what is fast becoming the BIGGEST thing on Zealot " thanks Phil and Gary" :mrgreen:

    Phil, those lunatic ideas of yours are how many great things get to happen in the real world, who would have thought 30 years ago that a bunch of middle aged wreckssign1 would be re-living their youth's and chatting all over the country/world without using a phone:p but here we are:thumb:
    I think we need more piccy's, so when i get the wheels on, i will post a new pic:oops:.
    Hiya Pete, this thread is going from strength to strength, Our mate Gary provided the ammo, then Phil pulled the trigger and away we went:mrgreen:

    Hi Mick,I don't think there will be any great things happening from my lunatic ideas certainly nothing as grand as the internet :mrgreen:but they do help take my mind off of other things for while.Pete yeah the gloss paper is a painwall1 I'm seriously thinking about matt and then a gloss lacquer,I have to wait now for another free period.Oh yes the bikes are pretty good at the moment Bradley Smith a young British rider is leading the championship in the 125cc class:goldcup: and there are a couple of other young Brits doing well too.F1 has all but been killed off by stupidity and lack of vision I just hope the bikes don't go the same way.:cry:
