Welcome to the FANTASY SCALE (Thunderbirds) Thunderbird 3 Gallery on TRF.

This gallery showcases the Thunderbird 3 (from the TV series) and those rockets derived from it. Particularly appropriate in this thread are the following:


MFG: MODEL: NUM



as well as any upscales, downscales, clones, kitbashes or other derivative works. Even Goonies qualify!

Un feaking believable, Nice Job. Have you flown them yet?

Always wanted to build them but didn't think they would fly.

And yes I remember watching them when I was a Kid.

between the 2 of them i spent close to 200 hours scratch building 90+percent of all parts lots of hand layed fibreglass here both are I class powered
I recognize the second one but not the first. Can you ID it for me?

Also, may I copy this to the gallery?

============
Silly me! I got to this post by clicking new posts. I didn't realize it was already in the gallery.

I still need to know what the first one is so that I can index it.

1st one is Thunderbird1
For some reason, that didn't click. The others are so iconic and that 1 is nice but didn't stand out in my memory.

Thanks for the contribution

Welcome to the FANTASY SCALE (Thunderbirds) Thunderbird 5 Gallery on TRF.

This gallery showcases the Thunderbird 1 (from the TV series) and those rockets derived from it.
Since this is a Thunderbird 5 gallery to showcase Thunderbird 1, here's my Thunderbird 3. :lol:

First flight was in 1993, on an A8-3, and it got the parachute out just in time to avoid crashing. Subsequent flights have been on B6-4's.

Oddman and Adrian,

How did you get TB 3 to work? I spent a long time on Rocksim trying to get that to fly but the best I could do was with a pound of ballast in the nose and the corresponding loss in performance. It was always going to be an interesting build.

Maybe I'll have to go back and try and out do you with a cluster set up like the real one
