1/350 scale TV21 Talons of the Eagle


Recommended Posts

Frank Bellamy illustrated TV21 Talons of the Eagle story using the RTL2 featured in the Thunderbirds episide The Cham Cham. Bellamy's dynamic style well illustrated the RTL2 a favourite guest vehicle of mine. Many, many years ago I scratchbuilt it, based around two Ariane V boosters. So no scale in mind.

 

With the re-released Aoshima TB kits, it occurred to me that the 1/350 scale TB2 might be compatible with the RTL2. Suprisingly they matched the Bellamy artwork virtually exactly. So adapted a pod and scratchbuilt the Bellamy grab. Here are the photos.

Really nice. Always been a fan of the RTL2 design and this is a lovely scratch build of it. Great job on Thunderbirds 1 and 2 as well!

Thanks very much everyone. Glad you like them.

 

Thought I'd try one with the small scale Aoshima diecast Zero X (with a bit of Photoshopping to hide the obvious diecast origin) in the same sort of vein.
