I think they used them regardless for the large model shots; hence you had things like this;


See about 4 mins in, the pod door has changed!

yes it's an entirely seperate model for close up shots..the landing legs of TB2 are dead give away Look at how many sections the close up model has compared to the version seconds earlier...also note how the top of the landing legs are black in the wide shot.

were oil filters used for the rear baffles on these models?

In what capacity? The remotest possibility I can see is if the outer 'mesh' was flattened and cut out into circles for the ends.

I also don't think they caused so much trouble using oil filters.

I agree too, mainly because lightness is the key for any model that would have to be hung, and they wouldnt stick on heavy oil filters, although I agree they do resemble them.

Nice photo's Richard thanks. I do notice however that the hole patterns appear to be the same on both but they are not aligned the same on both, as if they are screwed in but not matched if you understand what I mean. I would have thought with this being one of the signature models it they would have matched them up. As far as the weight Mike, T2 looks very nose heavy and a bit of weight on the back might make things easier to suspend.
Maybe gasmask filters? I will google.

juding by where they put the wires on, each corner above the vertical rockets, thatd make it balanced.

I still think it is a "found" part Mike. This filter says it was used for vehicles using heated fuel.

They may well have used the end 'plate' but not the filter as a whole (most notably because there is no ridge around the end of T2's engines). If you look at the repair bay scene after T2 is shot down it's clear there is a central tube, clearly for the rockets to fire which is not directly attached to the rear baffle plate.

the pit of peril one looks like its a sheet of perfirated metal with a larger hole drilled into the centre, as you can see the edges of the original holes.

also whats the diameter of the pipes vs the oil filters, id say the engines are a lot smaller

I would say the engines on my AB sudio scale TB2 are marginally bigger than the average oil filter

I think people are asuming because it looks similar to a car oil filter, it must be a car oil filter.
If it turns out that it is Id be happy
but I dont think it is

The fuel filter idea has crossed my mind before but 'if so' it would not have been used on every model. The pictures above show the backs of two different models and while its the same pattern the holes are a different size - bigger on the 1st model. Also the rear profile shot of the model featured on page one of this thread shows that the sides were created by rolling a sheet around a tube shape - as there is an overlap area thats thicker. Also the holes are clearly drilled out by a man, not super-neat like a machine would do.

I agree they look like different models. The picture of the crashed T2 look like man made perforations but the one with the winch above the sea look like machine made perforations. Like Mike's dad says they look a lot like fuel filters. I also have a picture in my head from many years ago of a cardboard cylinder with the same hole pattern but I can't remember what I'm thinking of, and its not Ajax or Vim.

Im guessing the smaller scale one in the countdown sequence is the same one that gets attacked in the arial shots in Terror in new york city (not the runway fire model), Im going by the small lower windows, and Is that also the one that takes off in Pit of Peril?



and a question for Mark42, or anyone else with a replica of the large model.

whats it like to manouver,work on and generally hold,own and play about with, is it awkward to hold like walking through a room with it?

It doesnt look too big to have in a collection as it looks like it sits nicely on the pic of Mark42s shelves.
