    Then I guess it was influence. All of Gerry Anderson's shows have a unique design which is immediately recognizable. I still remember watching Stingray and Thunderbirds when I was little. It's a pity that none of them have been shown again on German free TV in the last two decades. BTW, Thunderbird 2 and the Eagle are two of my all-time favourites. I'm glad that there are some paper models of them out there.

    More detail work on the cockpit,UHU02 is of course is doing an excellent job.A picture of the "real thing" and an Interceptor pilot sulking because he missed and they wont let him have another missile.

    More detail to the main engine.I'm really keen to see how this bit builds up,I spent ages trying to work out how to detail Gary's version,nearly went mad but finally got it looking close enough.The cat wasn't so impressed though and destroyed it,oh what a little scamp he is,fast too otherwise he would be a pair of fury mittens and a hat now!.

    UHU02 is really cracking on with the Interceptor.

    Unbelievable. This man has extraordinary talent, to say he is a true artist is an understatement!

    I must say that i have read an awful lot about the man who is responsible for this and many other designs. He certainly is a master if creations in all areas. You mentioned Gary Pilsworth and his design of this, is this still available ? One thing that confuses me here, you all talk about the great pictures :confused: i have to click on the words to view them, am i doing something wrong ? why can't i just view them here in the forum/thread ? I'm not that good with computers so it is probably just me :rolleyes: Back to you.

    Here you go http://dpileggispicks.com/garpilsworth/index.html
    As to your other problem I'm afraid I'm not sure it sounds like your not logged into the site but as you can leave comments I assume you are so maybe,and this is just a guess, you need to download Flash Player I'm sure someone will be able to sort it for you.

    Thank you GIXERGS. I will tell my son when he comes over to visit about the flash player, the last thing i did on this computer made it so that he had to reinitialise the software and he was not too very pleased with me for doing that to this machine. The machine is a PC. Thank you for the short cut to a page, i will get him to do what he can to get that for me and i will get it from a printer. I hope the UHU02 makes this and a fine job it will be, it looks splendid GIXERGS thank you. Back to you.

    Your welcome, Gary has designed a lot of Anderson kits and will put out one every so often to keep us Fandersons happy.As I say the Flash Player is just a guess based on blind luck when I was having trouble.Hopefully your son will get it sorted for you.
    All the best Phil

    Has UHU02 changed the log in and pass word to his site?
