Take off the T-tail, shorten the nose and de-crank the wings, and it looks a bit like a Tiffie :hmmm:

I can see a few of these getting whiffed up in the next wee while. Of course it just so happens there's a suitable GB coming up as well...

Question is, have they changed the moulds back to pre-SnapFast?

I'd forgotten how few parts were in the kit

Order submitted, wonder if I'll have time after the B5 Starfury to consider tacking this as well for the SF GB :)

As there is obviously a few Captain Scarlet fans on here, are any of you going to admit to fancying any of the Angels? :wub:

The above comments re finishing the model in RAF colours, well, I have already done that back in the late 60s'/early 70, when the very first issue of the kit came out!!!!!!!!!! I don't have the model any more but I painted it in the then standard RAF camo of Green/d.grey /light grey, blue red roundels and No.1 squadron flashes taken from the FROG (Hasegawa tooling) Harrier GR1. But it would look good in the modern colours though. Hmmm....

Maybe a good subject for a GB!! Any scheme you like!

Fireball XL5 was my first intro to the wonderful world of Mr Anderson.

First crush was Marina, Thunderbirds was sadly lacking on the babe front in my humble opinion, and then the Angels turned up, around my early teens, blimey!

Followed by the UFO babes. Thanks again Gerry.

Ah, the wonderful days of a sixties/ seventies chilhood pre-internet and digital effects.

Damn it Steve - I'm impressed - Rhapsody and Symphony! :wicked: Having the colours of the individual Tracy's too was just sheer bloody showing off, however!

So...that's 5 interceptors to buy although I noticed the recent quick review in AMW and it only has the ID numbers for one!

Spares box...
