Amazing how easy they are to see after the fact, but perhaps not a great add on to use as they are instantly recognisable when you do.

I have often wondered if some of the background buildings in Thunderbirds were constructed using the lego windows that were available at the time.

I think we should start a new thread and go through ALL of the Anderson vehicles and try and name as many parts as we can. I know there are already some great articles on many of the aircraft but there must be many other guest vehicles that have had little research done on them. Even if this just becomes an excercise to gather all of this information in to one place it would be very interesting. Backing up theories with screen grabs and photos would really help.

yeah definatley, only one Ive got is a matchbox one from 1968,

probably best to look a bit earlier aswel, 1950s maybe, things may have stood on shelves


going back to the top picture, above the lego brick looks like the window for the helijet that people have been trying to recognise, it looks like a bit of a life raft?

Mike...do you think you are developing an obsession??? LOL

I think you must have hit a new record for the most number of posts in such a short time since joining us!
Seriously though, you have made us really think a lot harder about these little details and certainly your screen grabs and ideas have solved some mysteries that were almost lost to the mists of time. Keep up the good work it's been a real interesting place here the last few weeks.

definatley! complete nerd when it comes to Thunderbirds

although I tried to researched it a lot before I found this forum but had nowhere to ask questions and talk about it,
I was addicted to the model railway forum before this, but thats gone on the back burner for a bit.
that Alan Schubrook book hasnt helped, aswel as getting DVD box set
every 10 minutes keep thinking of something that I thought about a while back, plus Ive had some time off work recentley, Im usually on here when Im in me girlfreinds, well it beats talking to her

The next thing for me, is to join Fanderson I think, I really never knew of it before all this, and would like to go to one of the convensions to have a look
