That's just beautiful Paul, you nailed the chassis and the wheels which are the hardest parts without the Vickers Vigor toy.

Very nice indeed. Is that the tractor tracks that they used on the Mole? I know I saw a couple for sale on e-bay. I forgot the name of the toy.

Nobody but the late Reg Hill and the late great Derek Meddings could
ever create such fantastically,wonderously designed vehicles and machines
that has ever graced the tv screens whenever we've watched many of
the Great Maestro's tv shows.And the Mole,one of the amazing vehicles
seen in the Classic Thunderbirds tv series is no special exception!

Paul, what tracks did you use for the body of the Mole itself? (by this I mean the ones running along it's length)

It works this way Paul: "See the outrageous price. It must be rare and really worth it. Got to buy it. Where's that rent money?" The illusion becomes reality.
