Count me in as #3. Outstanding job, great detailing. :mrgreen:
Yesterday I saw part of the first Interster episode in Youtube, and I was lucky enough to get subtitles in English, since I unfortunately don't speak afrikaanz (in Portuguese, we say africâner).
It was great to see a Cape Town way ahead into the future (I had the privilege to go there twice), in a fine production for that time. There's only one thing I thought was kind of out of place, but it's nothing to be worried about: the plot was rich enough, and that would seem a bit tricky for a small boy to understand. That's about it.
The models were great, and their quality resembled the ones from Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet, and so many others (even Ultraman!). But that's already been said.
Now I have doubled my interest in this thread, and this model has entered my (already too long) TO DO list!
Wow, the landing gear is incredible, as well as the rest of the greebling. I am amazed by how fast you are knocking this out, and the way you are making it really "PoP" out!
Love what you're doing to this little guy. Agree with mr Zathros, your additions does make it pop!
Thank you everyone for the kind words and encouragement.
Adding the extra detail is the fun part of the builds (regardless of the model).
Here is the tail Section.
Engines of the main body.
Oh, boy, that looks so very cool!

Cool looking ship. Classic lines.

Everything (including comments) have been sent to Thunderchild for review, revision, and clean-up.
That is truely a beautiful ship! Fine build, many details, simply WOW! Congratulations to both the builder and the designer!
Thank you for the compliment. It was a fun and enjoyable build.
Again, and again... WOW WOW WOW !!!!!!
Congrats RB, on another fantastic build, the details look amazing.:thumb::thumb::thumb:
And a superb design TC, just like I remember it!!! :mrgreen::thumb:
Another one for my TODO list.
Great work! The dedication in laminating each and every small part did add a real look to the beauty of the model, making it much more "beliavable"!
It's past being a model, it's a work of art!
