    I have just finished my replica of the Zero X spaceship from the 'Thunderbirds Are Go' film. It is 97cm long and made from balsa covered in either aluminium, plasticard or milliput.

    O.k. KevinD, or whatever your real name is...you're one of the original model makers who worked on the serie! Better yet, I think you're Dereck Medding's son. Yep, that's it.:D
    These pics look soooo much like the real thing that I'm giddy with glee. FAB all the way:cool

    Thanks. Here's another shot of my Zero X being given a Spectrum escort on re-entry.

    Perfect match to the film presentation... great job!

    BTW, what size are those tiles the WIP is shown resting upon?
