    Hi Everyone

    Thought I would post a few pics of the new kit my partner and I are working on. The FIREFLASH from the pilot episode of the Gerry Anderson series THUNDERBIRDS.

    Love to hear any comments. Its approx 33 inches long

    Are you doing this as a kit? Really nice.
    Are there any Elevator Cars out there in scale? (I have the LARK ones)

    Hi all

    Yes it will be a kit, and there will be elevator cars to scale. Hope fully the kit will be available within the next month or so.

    Thanks for the compliments guys. The photos to date have been of the prototype model (first out of our molds). Once I have assembled and painted it I have to organise decals to be made.

    I will continue to post progress photos and once we work out a price will let everyone know.

    The elevator cars will come later as a separate kit.

    Regards

    May I humbly offer my opinion that the wheel pods on the ends of the wings are a tad too fat, the chord of the wings is a little too broad and the wing windows are slightly too large. Sounds a lot but still a nice model and a good size.

    You may want to take out the wing loung and cockpit windows and make them clear cast for inserting. Maybe even make a vaccume buck and do them out of clear. It would look better IMO.

    Also, the wingletts that fold down for landing and up for in flight might be cool to have them seperate for the builder to choose the version.

    As I said this is our first mockup. The tail section and wing sections are being cast in clear, and we will be offering landing gear as an option as well as in scale elevator cars.

    he he he...

    I have a picture of the fireflash somewhere with one of the engines in flames and TB2 flying next to it. I might get it blown up and frame it.

    Seriously nice model though :thumbsup

    Any idea what price these will run at?

    (Nice "little" summer project :p)
