Brian, thanks for the review, it looks a fun and decent quality kit. Just a correction, as it says on the box lid, the creator of Thunderbirds was of course Gerry Anderson rather than Gary Anderson. I don't think there was ever anyone in Britain as old as him named Gary!

Don't we all! At 60yolds, I still have T-1, T-2 T-3 & T4 in metal. Only 5 is missing, well, it's not missing as I never had it in my possession ;-) Over the years, I lost Lady Penelope's Pink Rolls Royce. They are not exactly big, 4-5 inches at the most.

good news is you can now get them ALL in plastic and build them !!!! not a whole lot of parts, and careful fitting means seams are easy to deal with.

It's a good idea, but I have enough models in my stash for my next life so...

and I have 2 more coming in.
