Thunderbird 1 1.7

International Rescue - Thunderbird 1. Righty, bit different to my usual but works great. use trim up to take off vertically (VTOL for those people clever enough to try vertical landings), gear up retracts skids etc, 7 activates wing sweep and booster engine (both linked to throttle so dont forget to throttle back before deactivating), 8 turns off the gyro (only disable if you are not hovering). Only issue I have is the interaction between legs and skids, they wobble a bit but this seems to be a SP issue.

    @RamboJutter Was in the mood for some Gerry Anderson-designed vehicles. Currently trying (and failing) to build a Spectrum Pursuit Vehicle from Captain Scarlet, seeing as no one else has built one.

    @WatkinsIndustrial woah, someone found one of my 3 year old builds that flopped at the time. Thanks.

    Only complaint is that it doesn't go 15000mph like it does it the show. Other than that it's brilliant.

    Yeah it’s a very “kid” mivie, we only watched it out of boredom. I think it wasn’t that bad of a movie though, can’t remember @RamboJutter

    @ACEPILOT109 I don't think I have seen the film, used to watch the cartoon though.
