HERE IT IS... THUNDERBIRD 1......... THUNDERBIRDS ARE GO!!!!!!!! this is definatly not my greatest build but it was a pretty hard plane to build being shaped like a rocket an all and the colouring is all off and the swing wing feature is functional but very different to the actual plane as the wings slide in then rotate but have fun... it is also very unstable

    The thunderrizer was a tracked veichle with a giant pod on top which would open up and shot lasers to open up a wall or something. But know rmempering it's tracked you might not be able to build it. @Zing2000

    @Zing2000 I was just wondering if we could do a team build? like I do one thunderbird or another and we publish it together? I am looking at building thunderbirds 4?

    And just a suggestion... Put the VTOL landing gear and system in it if you can... But it is pretty hard I would imagine!
