Default large scratchbuild of thunderbird 3

hi everyone I have been busy once more doing my thing and here is the latest from my own old hand, a three foot scratchbuilt version of thunderbrid 3. all hand made and painted not very brilliantly I might add as painting is not realy my thing I just love building models. anyway the photos tell the story better than I can by typeing. let me know what you think the model wil of course be on display at TRANSPORT MODELS IN PRESTON LANCASHIRE so drop in and have a look.

regards Barrie ( the old guy )

well not as much as you think, but to give you some idea the bottom round section holding the rockets is 6 inches across, most of the plastic I used was to fill out therocket motors and the nose cone. I have all the build phots if there is a section you want to see let me know.

Very nice effort, Barrie However, don't forget that the white '3's on the lower fuselage are oriented sideways - they only look upright when TB 3 is in level flight

Hello Mr Fun Pod,
thank you for your comments and I did do a bit of looking into the numbering and there are two of the threes on the lower fusalge horizontally and one verticaly, it confused me for a while, if you have a copy of sc fi and fantyasy modeller " modeling the 21st century, there is a thunderbrird three build in there by David Mcdermott who caried out a great study of the craft and on page 19 you wil see the veritcal number three then on page 20 the horizontal number three, I think there were a great many variations of the model depending on scale and who built and finished it.

one thing is for sure you have studied them and love your thunderbrirds like most model makers, keep your glue sticky,

Oh!

Barrie, you are entirely correct: it would appear that it depends on which segment of the fuselage it is photographed from.

I humbly stand corrected.

I will have to admit Mr Fun Pod that it took me some time to realise that a lot of the models had a great deal of different sized lettering and numbers, just take a look at some thunderbird 2 reference phots and you will see what I mean, back then they just built and finished the model never making notes or taking photos to match up with later new models, but thats what makes making models so interesting and challenging keep your knife sharp and the top on your glue
