    My Moebius Cylon Raider kit

    After finishing my scratch build its back to a plastic kit and what a kit, after seeing it on a YouTube video I had to have one. The finished model will be 17 inches wide and 13 inches long which according to the blurb on the back of the box makes it studio scale. I have to admit I was never a...

    THunderbird One Remote Camera

    After the MK1 1999 Tank I decided to try my hand again at a scratch build. I finally chose the remote camera as it was small and seems relatively simple!. Next I had to think - studio scale or bigger, certainly bigger would be easier but I had a load of girder bridge parts namely the bits round...

    My Space 1999 UNCL Type 1 Laser tank

    When I finished my Moonbase 3 Buggy I thought that was that for models this year as we intended to move to another part of the country. But with the world going through a bad patch and stuck in house with nothing to do I managed to obtain an UNCL resin kit of the Type 1 Laser Tank. I'll be the...

    My Moonbase 3 Buggy

    I hope this is the right place to post this build. Anyway a lot of you may wondering why on earth am I building this vehicle as its not exactly an exciting design. Well although by todays standards the production values are low I still have a lot of affection for this series and the buggy in...

    Space 1999 Moon Buggy

    Continuing with my smaller projects this time its a Century Castings moon buggy. The finished kit is around 7" long and comes with the option of having headlights (all parts supplied) As you can see there are not many parts so hopefully it should complete with no major problems, though I have a...

    My 'Moon' Lunar Rover build

    With my large models all over the house and due to lack of available space I have to stick to smaller models at the moment. My latest is the superb UNCL 'Moon' Lunar Rover resin kit. When I say superb it really is with fantastic bubble free moulding and crisp clean lines I can thoroughly...

    My Comlock

    In the mid seventies just after the first series of 1999 was shown I built a comlock but unfortunately over the years it has disappeared so I thought it was time to build another. I know there are kits out there but I decided to scratch build using bits and bobs lying around the garage. I cut up...

    My Studio 2 SPV

    At the beginning of the year I decided to start my SPV model by Mamas. I chose the wrong time of the year to do this as it was so cold in the garage I could only spend just minutes at a time which meant progress was very slow. However with the warmer weather I've started in earnest again. As you...

    My Thunderbird 4

    After a rather long break from this I'm glad to get back to it. When my Stingray was finished it was Christmas then the weather was too cold then I got involved in decorating the house and redoing the garden, finally that's all over (I hope). Before Stingray I had built TB1 & TB3 and it was my...

    Thunderbirds Blu Ray

    I don't know if this is in the correct heading if not please forgive. I recently bought the German Thunderbirds Blu Ray and I have to say I'm really pleased with them. Back in 2000 I bought the first dvd box set of Thunderbirds and it served me well over the years but remastering has improved in...

    My Stingray Mk2 build

    Well here I am again with another Stingray, its very unusual for me to build more than one of anything but after the problems with my other Stingray I just had to have another go. I got another kit from Mamas and this time I'll make sure I don't make any mistakes. The advantage of a second go at...

    My 22" Eagle Kit

    For over a year this kit has sat on a shelf so I finally decided to get started. I won't bore you with too much build so this will be a short post, hopefully. I don't as a rule do plastic kits as I'm not very good with small fiddly bits but I have to say this kit went together quite well. I did...

    My Stingray Build

    After a long break from models ( I was decorating the house over the summer months) I'm getting back into swing of things with this Stingray build. Earlier this year I was building TB1 & TB3 and it was my intention to do TB4 but after the Hanslope model show in July I bought a Studio 2 kit of...

    My Collection

    Currently I'm busy decorating the house so when one room was complete I thought I'd get my models in one group. Unfortunately I missed out my Millennium Falcon and my full size stuff but at least I could see all my models in one go instead of them scattered around the house. Most of them are...

    My Thunderbird 1

    Before I had finished my TB3 I had purchased one of the excellent kits of TB1 from Ben. I had previously started a TB1 but I wasn't happy with it so I scrapped it and decided to have a rest from scratch building and hence the kit. This is a really good kit which will be approx 24" high and have...

    Johnny Express truck parts

    I have for sale the large yellow dump container from a Johnny Express Truck. I originally purchased it and other bits and bobs with the intention of building the tracked vehicle from the Cpt Scarlet episode 'Avalanche' I changed my mind so if any one is planning a similar model I'd rather it be...

    My Early Models

    As I'm currently working on a Thunderbird 3 model I remembered I had some photos lying around somewhere of my first attempt at this vehicle. After rummaging about I came a few photos that might be of interest. I started my modelling while still at school in the very early 70's and I did all my...

    My Thunderbird 3

    Its been sometime since I finished my Explosives Truck and since then I've started some projects which I ended up scrapping before completion so I spent ages thinking - what next? Well since this is Thunderbirds 50th year and its my favourite Anderson show its time to build an actual...

    My SPJ

    For a change from doing scratch builds I decided it was time for a kit and I chose the UNCL Spectrum Passenger Jet which was studio scale at about 20" long. I enjoyed building my last UNCL kit which was the Elevator Car so I knew this would be good quality. There are not a lot of parts for this...

    My Retro Moon Buggy

    Over summer I've been busy house decorating but thankfully its finished for now. During this period I was thinking what my next model project would be and as usual I kept changing my mind every five minutes. Anyway for the past few days I kept passing a charity shop that was selling the elevator...
