Description
Thunderbird 1, a hypersonic rocket plane used for fast response reconnaissance and as a mobile control base. From the British 1960s television show by Gerry Anderson. Original model by me. Made in sketchup, exported, texture mapped in another 3D package, then re-imported. I have added other wing and landing gear position options on layers - just show or hide then as required. The landing legs look light-weight but are based on those of the filming model (some models had wheels instead of skids but they looked a bit odd to me), plus they do fit properly into the wing landing gear bays - if you wanted to animate them. Also the landing/take-off rocket engine can be shown up or down - using different layers. The panel lines on the body are a bit made up by me - just what I thought looked reasonable - and most model kits and toys vary these anyway. #1960s #60s #aircraft #Anderson #British #equipment #fiction #future #international #mapped #metalic #one #plane #rescue #rocket #space #spacecraft #spaceship #television #textured #thunderbird #Thunderbird_1 #Thunderbirds #transport #TV
