Default 4 metre Thunderbird 2

Not particularly accurate but surely this has to be THE largest TB2 model ever constructed???



Follow the link for more images. Sorry if this has been posted before but I just came across it during a random Google search.

True, but you'd have to get the rockery thing going as well, plus the palm trees down the drive. One could have a lot of fun setting up.

That's wonderful! I'd love to see that in a US parade. (Won't hold my breath though... )

Hope, so. We had a wonderful TB1 at our shops that I certainly sat in. My son did the ride thing... It wasn't really big enough for me.

Far too small for me.

I'd have had to sit with me legs sticking out the sides ... in fact if i'd have had matching green trousers on i could have mimicked the wings.

Hey Dorzac,

that is cool.
Noticed that it has rolls?
So it could easily be removed.... :-)

Cheers

You know.... even these people managed to build a TB2 without the banana bend in the middle. You've got to wonder.
