Hi guys and gals. I recently posted my First ever scratch built Fireball XL5. After she was completed, i wondered what could be done to up-grade Pierre Fontaines model. I have put a cockpit into this one also, and added other details too. Hope you like the W.I.P !

Bravo, that looks the nuts. :D

By chance has anyone made a paper Jetmobile at all?

I would love to find paper stuff for the Anderson buildings from the earlier series too.

Great job Pete especially when you consider how small the original kit is!.

Lovely work mate, very very clever, fair play I love that.

Thank you Gentlemen - Pleased you like the build. These are builds from quite a while ago, but still working on improvements to some other models. I will keep you posted with whatever i make. Currently working on Gary Pilsworth's TB-2.... up-grading the engines, and may do several builds of this one, for a short video sequence i have in mind - i am quite excited about this project and you guys will be the first to see the outcome :thumbup:

Oh that's great! I think most of the Gerry Anderson puppet programmes had something like this in it to save on having to make the puppets move their legs.

Now that's an item you don't see very often, and would certainly be a great addition to the Pilsworth Empire. What-ever scale you go for Gary, i will have to scale down to go with the XL5's i have..... scale down ! did i really just say that ? :cry:

Supercar??

Pierre Fontaine had a Supercar in paper. But all the links I can find are broken.
Can anyone point me to a working link, or to any paper Supercar? :?

Great work, Peter!

Say, what are you fellows using for reference material in "upgrading" the original paper models like Pierre's?
