The Parts... not many - but very good quality with virtually no airbubble holes.

Before my latest house move I was testing out the garden shed for my spraying area, which was OK once I had moved a heater in there. The spraying of Alclad Aluminimum overall, masked then Humbrol #47 (Gloss Sea Blue) sprayed, and Alclad Steel for the engine bells. The nose cone was sprayed with Humbrol #153 (Insignia Red).

At the point where I set aside the kit to cure, we recieved notification of having to move yet again. So after a few days curing, the parts were packed back in its box, ready for the next house move. A couple of months later, and a question raised about this kit, I brought it down from the loft and photo'd the parts as they are currently.

I applied the decals, but there seems to be an issue with them sticking - I have the feeling adding a sealing coat wil show up a lot of silvering. So I have decided to stop the build at this stage.

I was intending to postshade as with my Thunderbird 3, but on reflection I think I prefer this one clean.

Just LOVE that TB2 diorama, I bet Derek Meddings would have too. Sad I know but it's still one of my favourite shows even after 43 years!

Wow, there's some monies worth in that cabinet!

TB1 definitely looks better for not being weathered. A great collection, building nicely... :coolio:

cheers

I bet you've got plenty of company! I don't think it's sad at all, but then I've always regarded growing up as optional :lol:

Terrific work Andy, like Mish I'm green with envy.
