Thunderbirds are go!

Recommended Posts

Nice drawing. Has anyone ever explained the gap between the red nose and the rest of the fuselage?

I still liked Thunderbird 2 better though.

Did you draw that yourself or did you pick it up somewhere and what are the colors on the fuselage? It looks like the same color on the SPV, zicron blue.

All my own work..

And no, I have no idea about the way the nose cone is spaced from the front - I'm guessing cooling though...

Thunderbird 2 is a possibility in the future... :thumbsup:

Nice work Clave :thumbsup:

They are for the 20 forward pitch and yaw jets from what I recall.

I'm not sure about the black rectangles on the TB3 docking collar (for docking with TB5). I understood that it was an all-white structure.

Concur that TB2 is my all-time favourite as well. I'm lucky. I'm 50 and I can legally watch 'Thunderbirds' again with my two children (aged 6 & 8).

Oh, your profiles lack one item - a figure to indicate the scale. I understand that TB 3 & 5 are the largest of the 5, and that TB4 is the smallest.

I know what you mean about the collar - I went with this as a reference:

But other pictures show it as smooth.. so I don't know..?

As for scale, I might do that at the end, and put all 5 together on the page...

Nice TB3 shot, Clave. I reckon that it is a studio shot. Apparently, the rockets produced a LOT of (toxic?) smoke. Oooo, is that stray glue at the base of the pylons?

You may want to change the "lower support strut", as they are spaced equidistant around the fuselage........

Yeah, that's a 'perceptual thing'

If the upper engine was not right at the top, then I would agree, but 'three points of a triangle' will always change in appearance depending on the angle...

Oh, and having looked at even more pics, the 'smooth collar' wins, so I will be changing that.. :salute:
