    Phil you are so right my friend :rolleyes: who would stoop to that level to get some very kind gentleman who is the bee's knee's of designing and so very very skilfull in his creations :twisted: i think he has made a self sculptor here or one of a very close relative :eek: well some well known person he knows and we are left to gaize at the unique face of whom ever it is :mrgreen:. How goes it with you my old mate? You know how i got the INK delivered ? WELLLLLLLL, guess what i'm going to make ? Yes i know... i have a hundred and one things to get through :eek:, but all this stuff here has made me itch to build something different, and something special and at any Rate master Phil you started it all you very GREAT PERSON :thumb: :mrgreen:

    Hi all just spent some happy time here and thought it might interest some of you too.
    This site has a list of vehicles from Thunderbirds from the TB's to the Hoods get away plane, very interesting. lester.demon.nl/superm/sfx/tbirds/models6.html also found a picture of the interceptor from NCS mentioned earlier as well a a cargo plane and a plane from the original Captain S. Its easy to forget with so many iconic craft how good some of the incidental stuff was.

    It's the Condor Freighter but thats the only picture I've been able to find and thanks to the terrible treatment the New Captain scarlet was given by UK television it's unlikely there will ever be a chance to get more.

    Well found good sir! I must of given up to soon or just not have the same google talents. She certainly shows that there is life in the old Anderson vehicle line yet and this is effectively a throw away vehicle not even one of the stars!

    Hi mate. Very un-like you to give up on a search but hey you usually find what you look for, so this is a very rare occasion for you my friend :confused::confused: she's one hell of an aircraft Phil and would certainly be one for a certain designer we know....Now who is he..... oh yes our Gary :twisted:

    Hi Pete, I think Gary has taken on more than enough on our behalf as it is and this beast would take some working on. Gerry Anderson's vehicles all seem to have a feel of the future mixed with a feel of the time they were made, or maybe it's just that so many of them became icons of the time they were made either way I hope that one of the ideas he said he had kicking around makes it on to the screen and this time gets the support it deserves.

    Ayup matey. Totally agree Phil, she's a beast {or beautiful beast i should say} All the vehicles have stood the test of time... if you see Fireflash for instance, you would know what other craft would be in that episode!, it's like as if they we're embedded in us when we were kids BUT... we never grow out of or away from these things "thank god". We owe alot to G&SA for making our childhood a very happy one; and one we will always look back upon with great delight. Just coming here to your thread has proved that all the passion is still there and any future ideas Gerry has got planned will be well worth watching i'm sure.... we know where he's at and he knows he still has a BIG fan base. Good look to him. Hope you find more goodies for our viewing pleasure mate. All the best. Regards. Your old mate Pete :mrgreen:

    Same in our house mate, She who must be obeyed has got it blaring behind me :cry:, You have managed to find some of the best looking craft ever to grace our screens :thumb:, its a real shame about the new Captain Scarlet, after having to stop doing overtime at weekends, I enjoyed sitting glued to the box. I think the Falcon used by the angels is awesome. Just imagine what it could have been like if the show was the roaring success it should have been, we could have possibly seen more of Gerry Andersons great shows updated and CGI'd, I would have never moved from the screen:twisted:

    Best wishes

    Mick

    Hi there matey. I was so into the SUN PROBE :thumb:, the whole thing hurtling towards the sun and not being able to fire it's retro's to get out of trouble :eek: and TB3 to the rescue.. needed to be rescued also and from a transmiter from earth :eek: courtesy of the robot working out the power and all other things out via Brains who made it :cool: {only to be beaten at chess by it.. was it called Brainman or something along those lines? :confused:} That episode had me on the edge of my seat has so too did many others in the productions. Defo FAB {no-one really knows what that stands for do they ?} Trust you are well mate. Sorry you had to indure the Awards, i like that kind of thing :cry:, but i was cutting and glueing at the time so missed most of it. All the best. Pete. :wave:
