Coming along really nicely! I wish I was this far ahead. I'm still waiting for pack 2. I also need another issue 3 The thunderbird 4 but I cant get the extra issue from Model space! I don't know what I'm going to do!

I broke a couple of pieces while assembling the excavator and am just waiting to hear from Modelspace about buying the necessary stages, if you know the stage you should be able to buy that and not the whole pack

Here is a picture of I.R.3 its not complete yet just got to wait a couple of months, assembling the front tracks was very fiddly

John - If you email Modelspace and give them your sub. no. you should be able to purchase stage 3, it will cost £8.99

Your T bird 2 is really coming along! Are the lights in the pod clear or solid plastic? The reason I ask is I'm thinking o lighting my pods up using the lights supplied or I will have to make my own!

It looks like the lights are a clear plastic with a silver paint/coating on the side that you see, as far as I can tell

Here is a pic of the legs extended. It says in the instructions to put the racks on the end (pack 6) then in pack 7 it tells you to remove them to fit the next part so I haven't fitted them yet as I cant see the point

Coming along pretty well! I'm a pack behind you so I can't wait to get my bits! The legs look quite long in the photo!

Thanks John, the legs are approx. 5mm longer than the height of the pod.

I have just ordered the launch ramp so hopefully that should be here next week.

if they launch the extended set (parts 80-95) in the UK I might purchase them as well.

Hi Nick, that's a great tip "Startrek" meets "Thunderbirds" :laughing-rolling: ;)
