Thunderbirds Are Go

I've been searching around online for the Thunderbirds badges that International Rescue all wear on the shoulders of their costumes, but so far I haven't been able to find any high-res copies. The closest I've managed to find are these blurry images from the ITV website:

If anyone could help, this would be greatly appreciated, as I am hoping to start working on a Thunderbirds Are Go costume, and these badges will really help complete the build.
Kind regards, The14thDr :D

if your going to put them on a costume - the easiest way for me is to print them onto T-shirt transfer paper nad use a White Tee-shirt as a background and then use black wool as a border around the edge to give it that Authentic Patch look - then if your costume really rocks you can get a few printed professionally and tweak the costume - hope this helps

EDIT:- takes a bit of time to do border in a nice tight border, also forgot to mention although might be obvious you need to cut them out with a 3-4 mm border so that you can sow the wool around it

Thanks for the advice. I wasn't exactly sure how I was going to attach the badge to the suit, I just knew it was going to be there, so this will really help me. :)

I was looking on the Thunderbirds Wikia yesterday and I found a version of Virgil's Thunderbird 2 badge with a transparent background.

Does anyone have a copy of Kayo's Thunderbird Shadow badge? I saw a tiny version on her profile on the Thunderbirds Are Go website, but nothing high-res or big enough to be printed properly. I'd like to make a set of all 6 badges if possible, mainly for display purposes.

Kind regards, The14thDr :D

Hey! I'm looking into making a suit - Virgil's - but was wondering what fabrics you might have decided upon with your suit?

For example, the sash/harness looks like it could be leather at times, other times, just green ... something. And his boots and gauntlets sometimes look like suede, and then sometimes, perhaps a neoprene (which would be better suited in a real world scenario)

What did you end up using?
