Default Big Thunderbird 3

Howdy Gent's,

As we are a Global group of fan's for all thing's Anderson? I am hoping one of you may be able to give me a lead or a link in my quest for a large TB 3? I know a rare kit was made in Japan called,"Big Model" as i have there large TB 1? But sadly i can not track down there TB 3 kit as it would be rather large? My google searches for Tb 3 kits in general has got me no where i need your helpppp pleaseeee?

Not that its much good to someone in lovely Canada but Modelzone were selling them off for 150. Not to my taste but a nice piece. I think Comet Miniatures still had one left but they wanted 300.

I am aware of two large versions of TB3 from Japan.

A limited edition vinyl kit that when built should be about 24" tall, and which I am fortunate enough to own.

Imai advertised large resin kits of both TB1 and TB3 to compliment the large resin on foam TB2 they also produced in the 1990s. Whilst I know TB2 along with Zero-X and the Mole were made I have never seen any evidence of TB1 or TB3.

Imai did do a smaller resin kit of TB3 approx 9" long as well as the advertised large scale model.
