  1. From Mike Trim TB2 Green = Pantone 363 U. Yellow fuselage band = 602 U. Engine Red =485 U. Yellow bands on tail unit = 107 U.
  2. Lovely to see one of Chris's kits finished so well. Really nicely done
  3. Still have Scott's Pod and smaller Aries; he owes me a big Aries as well. At least Moebius will deliver, hopefully, a large scale Aries. Al I can say is happy days
  4. Looks beautiful; I still remember seeing it on the lake
  5. Humbrol 80 is a good match, I've also heard of the Ford Apple Jack colour. Question is whether this was on the original Thunderbird 2 builds or a later rebuild, have heard that Apple Jack was not used on all the studio models. Derek Meddings chose all the colours, Thunderbird 2 was originally Blue before he saw the light
  6. Saw the flyer on the Gaspatch table at Telford. Really intrigued to see what it'll be like.
  7. Aries listed as 45mm in height, so these are not big. Ken
  8. Try eBay, otherwise look at the Trumpeter version. This looks to be suspiciously similar to the DSPIAE one, this is available in the UK. https://www.emodels.co.uk//trumpeter-single-blade-nippers-for-plastic-parts-09990.html?utm_source=scalemates&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=marketplace
  9. Evilbay goodies and at a good price Also managed to get the Thunderbirds (Pink) book at a not so good price lols. Seems Ebay has some good stuff at a reasonable price at the moment which is happily surprising and worth looking out for. Ken
  10. Pretty good selection to be fair; bit nostalgic but love to see the old Roy Cross artwork again. Will probably pick up some of the older stuff, the Jetstream in particular. New tools, the Moth, must sort a JBOT, Thunderbird 6 sheet At the present time, just glad to see the new toolings and new boxings; something is really so much better than nothing. Ken
  11. Well i hazard a 2 seat meatbox and after the Defiant, how about a new tool Battle?
  12. Have the Falcon 3d parts sets and they are excellent as is the Greenstrawberry etch. There are a few options for lighting but I went with Falcon 3d parts and again I'm quite happy with the choice I made.
