Hey Guys, i was Just Wondering, I'm planning a Gerry Anderson style Project and was Wondering If Gerry had Ever Considered using a B-52 model in Any Episodes of Stingray,Thunderbirds,Captain scarlet or Joe 90? Think a B-52 would Work for a Gerry Anderson style Diorama? Please Respond when Possible. Dan

Not Sure, i know the B-52 is Older than many Flight Crews! i Ask because the B-52 was in service When thunderbirds was on The Air! I've had a few Ideas, but thought I'd Ask the Forum! Dan

I don't recall a B-52 ever appearing in any of his shows-
However if you want an old bomber that could fit the Anderson universe perhaps:

Neither entered service in our universe but were flight tested and in development before they got shelved. There are a number of model kits of these craft in different scales for a diorama...

I Don't mind Witty Jokes, but sometimes I've been SLAMMED by Folks who think I'm an Idiot. I have some Plans for the B-52, some Inspired by the Dale Brown Novel 'Flight of The Old Dog'! thought it might work with the Gerry Anderson Universe! Dan

No, you aren't. :no: Not by any means...

So - act on those plans of yours, and see where inspiration takes you! :!: Will you let us know, afterward? Here's hoping so...

I was thinking about your idea...had you thought of moving the wings back on the fuselage?

Alphans
that is Possible, might even go a Bit Wild and maybe fab up a pair of Delta Wings, even if it might be a bit Tough @ 1/144! thanks For Understanding,Ham. Have a Few other Gerry Anderson Projects planned, including Making an SR-71 into a Super Drone! Dan

I think it's a good idea. Speaking of the SR71, here is my Anderson-esque rendering of it, from my 'Spacex' project.

Thanks Kevin! Glad I'm Getting a Warm Reception with my Ideas! My SR-71 is an Odd Scale Snaptite that I'm turning into a World Air Force Super Drone for Aircraft like Red Arrow to Shoot down! Hope to have it Ready in time for Our Local Fair in this Area! Dan
