    Real Life Fireflash

    Not an exact design copy but like the Fireflash the passengers ride in the wings instead of in a central fuselage. I think it's about time we had some really cool, futuristic airliners instead of the same old things with performance tweaks *it is the 21st century after all)...

    Captain Scarlet Haynes Manual

    Another entry in the Haynes manuals for Scifi subjects. I have the Thunderbirds (classic), Star Wars Death Star & Falcon ones, along with the Star Trek Enterprise and Klingon Bird of Prey editions. These are very well done- the feature cutaway illustrations, photos and detailed history and...

    New Captain Scarlet on Amazon Prime

    Finally getting a chance to see this series fully instead of snippets here and there. First impressions- I do like some of the reimagined designs- Cloudbase looks good and so do the Angel fighters. I do not care much for the new Salon and the Rhino is definitely not an SPV. The characters are...

    New Space 1999 Kits from Round 2

    Courtesy of GreenDragon on BritModeller.com Forum: Cult TV Man has some news from Round 2 about some new kits due before end of 2017. First up is a 1/1000th scale snap kit of DS9's USS Defiant. Rather more interesting to me is a Space 1999 1/48th Nuclear Waste Area #2! Set will include Moon...

    UFO Sets on 'Mindbender'

    I was watching the episode 'Mindbender' last night. While a pretty interesting show, one thing I found fascinating was seeing the filming sets from the studio point of view. My favorite was a crane pan up from the partial Moonbase Control set. looking down at the plywood and translights which...

    Millennium Eagle from SciFi Airshow

    http://www.therpf.com/showthread.php?t=268004 A blend of the classic Eagle with the prototype Millennium Falcon from Star Wars (a design which was not used since it was too close the 1999 craft so they rebuilt it as the Blockade Runner) The link above is full of images on RPF...

    Fireball XL-7 (?) Wreckage

    There have been several time a sister ship has been destroyed in the series. I believe there was one which was already turned into small scrap and being fed into an alien automated recycling factory IIRC. The other one I remember was mostly intact and on the surface of a moon or planet- there...

    1/32 SPV @ Monsters In Motion

    http://www.monstersinmotion.com/cart/spaceships-vehicles-item-list-a-e-c-13_191/captain-scarlet-spv-1-35-scale-model-kit-by-finishers-p-22246 A fair price for a decent scaled resin kit but it looks off to me- some details are missing and some shapes are wrong. Still, as a starting point for...

    Question about the Eagle 'Lab Pod'

    First off I must say I do like the Lab Pod- the only PE Eagle I own was this configuration. It is just refreshing after seeing the standard pod being called everything under the sun but having the exact same exterior (although two had different paint jobs). My question is mostly- why is this...

    '5 Star 5' - the Movie that Almost Happened

    http://www.gerryanderson.co.uk/designing-5-star-5/ "Sadly many of the productions Gerry Anderson developed never made it to completion. For some the holy grail of these is Five Star Five – a movie that would have been the successor to “Space 1999″. The best way to describe the film is that it...

    HELP! - Need Aoshima 1/350 TB-3 Instructions

    When relocating my model stash the instruction sheet for Thunderbird 3 went missing. I am currently engraving fine panel lines into the hull and while the assembly seems straight forward, I do not want to take any chances. If anyone has the instructions and can scan them for me I would really...

    Now my Fiance is impressed with Thunderbirds...

    Last night we watched episode 2 (Pit of Peril) and episode 3 (City on Fire) all together in the living room. She is NOT a SciFi person, only seen a couple of episodes of TOS Trek and Firefly (loved Dr. Who though). The puppets threw her a bit- she was wondering why to go through all the...

    Stepson watching Thunderbirds for the first time

    Last night I showed my Stepson (10 yrs old) the classic Thunderbirds show- "Trapped in the Sky". He had seen the Frakes movie and liked it but when he saw my collection of models which looked better than the movie versions his eyes lit up. I have the Takara Thunderbird 2 1/144 scale Pod cutaway...
