monobrake scratch build

barrie

Alphans
hello every one,
well here is my humble attempt at another pod vehicle, the monobrake which was only seen in one episode of the great show Thunderbirds.

I hope that you will like it, be honest as this will help me when I have a go at another pod vehicle in the near future. I have built it to the same scale as my recovery vehicle model and it works out at approx 9 inches wide and 14 inches long. I did enjoy this one a great deal as it is so different to many of the other models I make. One of the few kit bits on the model is the steering wheel, everything else is scratch built.

keep safe and well every one
regards Barrie ( the old pod guy )

Thanks Malcolm,
I like to have a go at things that nobody seems to have made and has not been done as a kit, I am glad that you like it. I may have a go at the DOMO you got the name right, but I also might have a go at the field mission half track which Brains uses in the desert, it looks such a good blend of the wierd front wheels and the power tracks.
watch this space.

regards Barrie ( the pod boy )

I enjoy building the 'odd' Anderson vehicle as well and did construct the desert jeep but the one with all wheels a few years back. Its such an ungainly shape but it does look fabulous on screen, good luck with future builds. Unfortunately as we are planning to move later this year I can't get involved in starting another build of anything. However to pass the time without making any mess or getting too involved I've started making the Vigor Tractor tracks one at a time. I think I will go mad as each piece has 9 parts and there are approx 90 track links - what have I let myself into.

WOW, what can I say but brilliant Malcolm, with you setting such a high standard I might not even bother building anything else. You should have been the model builder for the show.....superb job. I will give it a try anyway because I just love making models.

Many thanks Barrie.
I shall certainly look forward to seeing your tracked version of this vehicle and any other model from you as I'm always amazed at what you create.
As you use so many rivets/bolt heads on your models have you ever thought of using a multi choice hole punch. I used it on my Joe 90 explosive vehicle and the tracks I'm working on now, it makes life easier.
Till next time
Malcolm
