    Ok a visit to the pepakura gallery has revealed that somehow between Stingray and the Terror Fish the incredible Sir Pilsworth :inw:has created the UFO from The Invaders http://www.tamasoft.co.jp/pepakura-en/
    There seems to be no end to his talents..hopefully :thumb:

    Hi Phil. Mr Pilsworth is certainly up to the mark with all of this :thumb: ! i am totally and i do mean TOTALLY impressed, this guy goes from Wire frame to paper model in the bat of an eyelid and i'm sure he is upto doing just about anything - what a SKILLED person he is ! Your thread is bursting into life now mate and it's great to see so many of the other G & S Anderson vehicles doing the rounds on here. Nice one Phil :mrgreen: Regards your mate Pete.

    Ayup mate. No i wasn't aware that the model was one of his... no wonder it was such a good one to build, he really knows his stuff. I will have a go at Stingray when things get better. It would be great if he could do us the marvelous SEAVIEW announce1 HINT HINT !!! in the meantime here's a link to a holiday video {Dubai} Enjoy. Back real soon. Regards your old mate Pete.

    With Apologies

    Begging forgiveness from both Gary and Gerry Anderson I show here in order to quiet the baying mob,well Pete and Mick the rough,the very rough 1st practise how the Hell does this thing go together build of the hull of Stingray.The main problems were may stupidity bad choice of glue,see first reason and poor order of assembly,see first reason and second reason. I also have included the start of the proper build by way of a defence for the first build!.:flush1: Despite the pictures it is a very nice model,prety straight forward even without instructions and a model long overdue in the Fanderson World thanks again Garry and sorry for the butchery of your hard work I shall try to make amends:thumb:

    :mrgreen:Me nag, Don't know what you're on about:twisted: Great start Phil, I'm sure she is much better than my first attempt will be. I didn't realise that it would build up as large as it is in your pics, maybe by big sausage fingers will be able to cope a little better:oops:, and it's about time I started building again. Have you seen Gary's interceptor ?, I printed it out at about half past midnight last night and have put it on the list of builds I am going to murder:cry: but will try anyway.
    Hi Pete, all I have got to say to you, Is that I am totally GREEN with envy, great vid and the music fits really well:thumb::thumb:
    All the best guys

    HI Mick :wave:thanks for the kind words.Oh yes she is a biggen but very nice. I had ago at the Interceptor a while ago and completely messed up the engine by getting the way it went together completely wrongwall1 thats why I decided to do a quick tutorial build this time, rather make the mistakes on one that doesn't matter than stuff one I had spent time on. I must have another go at the Interceptor now I have it figured ,ho hum so much to do so little me to do it, have fun with both the models.
    Pete nice video mate shame about that tramp in the hat that got in the waysign1 I'm not jealous :xnot at all no way ,a bit maybe ggggrrrrrrrrr!

    Model Designs by Gary Pilsworth

    A wonderful design collection, Gary,

    The 2001 - A Space Odyssey PanAm 'Orion III' space clipper is still my Nr.1 favourite.

    Do you think you could release the new STINGRAY model as JPEGs for us poor Mac users? That would be great. I´d like to build it.
    Thanks.

    All the best from Stockholm,
    Bengt :thumb:

    Stunning collection!I've always thought that the TSR2 had a Gerry Anderson look about her and she certainly doesn't look out of place in that the collection.I wished you had put the pictures up sooner ,I might not of had to embarrass myself with my build if you had. Love the 2001 Moon Bus as well.Captain Scarlet and UFO used a sort of hopper type of thing for moon travel, another interesting design.Have you managed a build of the Terror Fish yet? it would be nice to see the finished article.
    Thanks for the great models Phil

    Ayup matey. Glad you liked the video {you cheeky bugger.. ah ah ah}
    Phil, my friend; that's your first go at the model without instructions AND it's a VERY COMPLEX shape to deal with :eek: !... You will make a STUNNER on your next go of this i am very certain :thumb:. You work on things when you can and don't rush {i know your situation isn't ideal for hobbies - but you are working well !} Really enjoying this thread it's very inspiring. Regards to you my mate. Pete. Your old tramp in the hat sign1

    I second that my man :thumb: Glad you liked the video Mick. Now then Gary... if you still have the files for the TSR 2 could you pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeze make them available for our mate Phil ? i am very very very sure that it would make him HAPPY :mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen: and would you consider doing a design for the AWESOME "SEAVIEW" from Voyage to the bottom of the sea ?

    Hi guys, I have to agree with Pete, Seaview would be brilliant :thumb::thumb:. I suppose I am a little lucky as I can visit the TSR 2 at almost any time as Cosford museum is only about 15 miles away and is free to get in :mrgreen::mrgreen:, sorry to rub it in Phil, but I'll cheer you up with a pic from my last visit

    Mick in my last Email to Pete I called him something, Please ask him what it was and call yourself itsign1...Duxford is about 30-45 minutes from here and has the other complete airframe although Cosford has the flown one. Never been to Cosford but hope to some day, at the moment circumstance stops me going anywherewall1. Pete my loyal and evidently blind friend, it is a very rough build but I was expecting it to be.I am hoping now thanks to this build to be able to make a much more presentable one it will however most likely take some time all things considered. a Seaview would be nice,the TV version for preference I prefer the look of the single row of windows Irwin, Allen being the Gerry Anderson of the US,but without the puppets.Back to Mick,my Brother,also Mick, bought me the very lovely ltd edition/48 scale Airfix kit of the TSR2 this along with the 1/32 Sea Venom sits and waits for my attention one day,one day. All the best Phil.
