I know the Tracey brothers in Thunderbirds were named after real US astronauts and I`m sure I read somewhere that Scott`s features were based on Sean Connery.

Very cool display model.
Very piss-poor camera handling skills.

They did want a change from dark haired & hairy Sean Connery so that`s why Blond & Smooth Roger Moore got it.

Capt Scarlet was a funny Cary Grant impersonation. I love that about it. And the Angel`s jets...would love to have that for a model to build. Or anything from UFO. They`re out there, but pricey collectables mostly.

Michael Billington is not my cup of tea but I think he would have made a good Bond now I think of it. Maybe a bit too close in style to Connery if it was a chamge they were after. Capt Scarlett was handsome...for a puppet, I guess. I liked Marina (I think she was called) from Stingray.

Drawman, we got them, but they were not very popular. I like them. Capt Scarlet ! UFO especially. It`s fun to see how a show from the 60`s envisioned the 80s would look. And how sexy was Michael Billington. Shame he didn`t the 007 role, he`d have been good.

Voyage was another big favourite of mine growing up. Gerry, did you guys get the Gerry Anderson tv shows in the 60s and 70s? Some great scope for modelling with Thunderbirds, Stingray, UFO etc.

Hey for all you know he has sex with that very model. It`s hawt!!

It truly is awesome but I have one complaint. If it`s going to have a power cord why would it not be run through the mounting post??? Lost big points when I saw that power cord hanging off the bottom.

@Gerry

Of course, now that you mention it, it should have been obvious that that wasn`t your Flying Sub since it was UNDER WATER! Either that, or you create some wild display cases.

It sounds like fun. I used to buy the Aurora kits back in the 60`s. I built the Seaview, as well as planes, cars and monsters.
Wish I still had them for nostalgia`s sake, but when I got older, I couldn`t resist the temptation to blow them all to smithereens one Fourth of July.

Yes, that flying sub is nice. It`s the one they used in the tv show. I haven`t finished mine.

No, I don`t do them from scratch. I`m not that good at maths {Maths is harrrrrd}. You get the plastic kit just like when you were a kid and then add stuff. Lights. Aftermarket accuracy pieces. Scratch build your own additions. My ISS RELIANT on my page was started from a kit, but then I redesigned it and built it up from parts of other kits, and some sheets of plastic any shop has to make a new design all my own. Then paint, paint, paint, screw it up, fix paint.

Or my ISS CONSTITUTION where I simulate a destroyed ship. I had to build the inner decks and rooms there were now exposed. Engine parts, corridors, etc.

Subject doesn`t matter. Plane, space ship, cars or tanks & boats. It`s all the same techniques. Get in touch with your childhood and pick up a model kit :)

Gerry, that`s a really nice Flying Sub (I`m a huge "Voyage" fan). Do you make all your models completely from scratch? Are they wood?
Really impressive work.

Again thanks. Lots of stuff on my page there if you click on the stuff to the left.
Currenlty I`m finishing up the final paint job for the Flying Sub from Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea. The full interior is also built, you look through the windows and can see everything.



The movie Enterprise in this video is nice though. It`s detailing and Aztec surface pattern is good. Not my favorite Enterprise, but it`s nice. I`d like to build one {on a smaller scale}.

Gerry, I also like your model better. It`s a real labor of love, and the shuttle bay is fantastic. How about a transporter room?

And your camera work was better than his, Gerry. I love the shuttle bay and the bridge. It may have taken 4 months but it`s not work when it comes to something like this. Thanks for posting.

Thanks gang for the compliments. Took me 4 months to build it. LINK to better/bigger photos.

Cost for that guys model I`m guessing is about $500-750 US. The light kits and detailed brass pieces cost me 250, the model unbuilt is 100 so add the labor of building, detailing and shipping.

Nice work Gerry! I wonder what one pays for a model like the one in the video. I would guess about $250 or more.

I`m kinda jealous `cause I know that model is not available in the USA. He`s overseas or ordered from overseas at great cost.

But what a cheater! I had to build my own and add lights myself. I did do the shuttle bay but I see he doesn`t have a bridge! HAHA! And I chose Original ship, not movie.

That model is a beauty. It would be fun to have some big robot models around ...
