Thunderbirds 1 and 2. TB2 is a large 1/144 Imai kit made from a strange dense expanded polystyrene covered with a resin coating. TB1 is a resin UNCL kit about 1/100 scale. TB1 was scaled in the PC to TB2. The background is a photo I took flying just east of Edinburgh, but flipped mirror image so the sun was roughly in the right place.

Two foot long resin Zero X from AJAMODELS (via Federation Models). Scaled to the Imai 1/350 scale Thunderbird 2. I installed magnets to allow for separation of the MEV and Lifting Bodies.
