Default Does anyone have any good pics of the large Taito TB2?

Pondering picking one of these up as the Takara and Aoshima ones are rarer than ever it seems, but I don't think I've seen one in any detail. Would it need a repaint to look decent?

The Tatio TB2 is OK, it is the worst model in that range of the six TB models though if truth be told. The profile is a bit off and the green is too dark, but as you mentioned it is easier to get hold of and is not too pricey either. I have all six in the set and I have not considered doing anything to TB2 as it is what it is.

Profile is off , colour is wrong , intakes round instead of " D " shaped , "Thunderbird 2 " font soooo big it curves across the side of the cockpit to get it all in . Apart from that it's fine .

We have seen far worse though and much more expensive to boot, the TB2 'green bannana' from Iconic replica's leaps to mind.

BTW, thread moved to correct forum.

I'd love the rest but I haven't seen a TB2 cheap enough to warrant buying it. The others are very nice, but again, not cheap... well, I haven't found any.
