Default still not finished yet

I have not finished yet .
I have to instal a motor in the pod for the door to open and close and one attached to one roller for the model to roll for and backwards.
And i have to make a connextion that holds the pod in place and that relaese the pod when the model is lifting.


Regards Ben

Hi Ben
Thanks for the update photos of this wonderful project. In the photos... if that is the 40inch Thunderbird 2....what is the size of the Thunderbird 3 which is next to it? The Thunderbird 3 appears to be bigger than the Thunderbird 2 in the second photo. Is that right?....which makes the TB3 bigger than 40 inches long unless that is an optical illusion due to the arrangement of the two models. OR....That's the 75cm ... 30inch TB3 ??

Default Beautiful....

What isn't an optical illusion is the quality of your workmanship on all three of those craft. Good luck with all the motorisation Ben!

Kindest regards

Patrick
