  1. Aoshima Thunderbird 1

    My lovely wife bought me an Aoshima Thunderbird 1 for our Wedding Anniversary this year. The obvious thing for me then was to watch Trapped in the Sky to see which version of Thunderbird 1 was used as the kit provides both wheels and skids for the undercarriage, which hopefully will be strong enough to support the model. Continuity must have been a nightmare for the model makers and film crew as when TB 1 arrives at the danger zone the gear changes three times during the course of the landing! The kit is basic but there is sufficient detail to make this a very good model. Iā€™m really looking forward to building the kit as despite being 1/144 scale it is impressive in size. It will be good to finish a model!

    I believe that Lifecolor produce the correct blue. I was discussing exactly this with a friend yesterday.
  4. Are there any other platforms than Flickr we can use for pics please? I ask as a fellow member clicked on a picture and it corrupted his laptop to the extent that it's not useable.

    If it's as good as your Argosy it will be a fabulous kit.
  6. Using acrylic paint helps too. Much easier to clean both the pot and the airbrush.

    Magnificent, thanks to you both.

    Hi Dennis, very useful info there. One question, does the point of the NACA triangle face forward or aft? Many thanks.

    Thanks Steve, found it šŸ˜ƒ.

    Great work. I am in the middle of my first one and am fitting the conventional doors in the open position as Airfix have thoughtfully provided the necessary parts to enable me to do so. I have been unable to find a picture of an Victor thus configured. I have worked out that the doors retract in a similar way to the Canberra but does anyone know if they disappear completely inside the fuselage? Many thanks.

    I have one of those things.
  12. I used to visit him regularly, although unfortunately space was at a premium. AG Fry is now a hairdresser called Style Guru, not a kit in site!

  14. Like Steve I used to frequent MR & ME in both sets of premises until they closed in 2006 (Steve?). Goldings is a more than adequate replacement.
