THE MAGNETIC DOT ENCYCLOPEDIA

Thunderbird 2 Like

by: tend2it Follow


Thunderbird 2 requires 637 Zen Magnets (or equivalent neodymium balls) to make. A little less that 3 sets of 216.

Thunderbird 2 is one of the famous International Rescue ships from Gerry and Sylvia Anderson's brilliant Supermarionation special effects landmark show Thunderbirds circa 1960's. It was a heavy transporter ... characterized by its interchangeable modular cargo pods that filled the center body section . This design was the precursor to Space 1999's Eagle transport ship.

For this design, I took my Space Cruiser Kutrilla concept and lengthened the body and changed the wings slightly. Thunderbird 2 was also the inspiration for that design as well. Shots of it along other ships can be found in
