the camera always shows that up so its always good to take photos and then look at the pics, can show up more obvious than looking at the model in real life.

what glue are you using, have you tried mek pack?

I will start using superglue, would be very quick in comparison to what i'm used to. I've been looking at the pics...and my work seems very kak-handed...would the originals have been that rough? (I think not). The pointed bit on the end of the jib was very hard, not only did the profile have to be pointed, but the plan had to be too.

You'd be surprised just how rough studio models can be. Don't forget, models like the cranes would have been on screen for a few seconds and all the models for the episode would have had to have been built in ten days or less. No one would have thought, 45 years ago thattheir efforts would have been shown on anything better than a 405-line monochrome set (UK) or a 525-line colour NTSC set (US)

Day of Disaster was an excellent Thunderbirds episode, I have just thought of watching it again tonight on DVD while I am tucked up in bed..

Alright Mike, my end of the bargain here!

Due to my poor photgraphy I can not get any closer. That is a 15 cm ruler, is it this size weapons pod you need?

I'm sorry about that Mike, i'm also sorry for not replying to this thread for a lvery ong time. Work on this project has been slow at best. I've been trying to build the solid area behind the boom, and i still cant get things to work. When i'm back in Bristol i will have another go at it. Have got some sketches of the boat up, just need to get my mitts on some wood. I will probably do that over the summer in the garden

Just had a creativity spree that resulted in picking up on this again. But I have become entangled in the same problems as last time. I lack the abilities to even attempt the boat section of the crane and the rear end of the crane jib is sending me up the wall. A shopping trip is needed with my next influx of money to stock up on more spare parts but there is a bit of me feeling the urge to shelve the project again

watever your stuck on im sure people here will help,

id say get down to b&q or your local timber yard and pick up some ply or MDF and get drawing up some full scale plans. once youve got your base itll be easier.
do a practice by cutting up a large piece of cardboard.

if theres parts of the original you cant work out you can make it up, no one will ever argue theyre wrong, and I wouldnt worry no one will shoot you for it.
