Default Picture of Mole

Finally got hold of a scanner. My first scanned picture is this one of the Mole. I have the original slide that was used in the production of one of the Thunderbirds summer albums way back in the 60's. I had only two prints made from this slide. One of these prints has been scanned today.

Great detail shot of TB5! You don't often see it from that angle. Thanks for posting!

A rough guess - about 1/24th scale ?

Thanks hwels,
You've saved me a lot of time and effort as your pic shows the lower hatch isn't recessed, great no cutting just measure up the plasticard and stick it on ha haaaaa!!!


ps, in the Mole pod shot anyone else notice the old milk bottle pourer above the door? Damn we had those by the dozen back in the day my Father was a milkman for a time lol

I'm glad you noticed that! I sanded off my lower hatch and had forgotten to put it back! I'll use the same trick as you but with a smaller piece of plastic!

There's the mark of a true man, one that can admit mine is bigger than his lmao

I think it was seeing Martin bowers comic pics that convinced mr it was recessed

I noticed it but was trying to work out what it was, I thought it was the bottom of a light bulb or something,

Id never even heard of a milk bottle pourer until now, thanks for pointing it out

cheers
