Thunderbird 3 is called to assist a research vessel that has been trapped in saturn's rings. They find the ship stricken and derelict, there is only one way to find out if there's any survivors...
Haven't done any art in a while, been pretty busy. was a bit down so decided to shelve everything and do this.
It occurred to me randomly, while I had much better things to do, that the only Classic Thunderbird i've properly modelled is TB1, I've been using my own variants for all my other images.
Never been a massive TB3 fan. This was actually a little bit of a challenge to make it look Epic and absolutely massive. Gave it quite a bit of weathering to make it look well used and to give the impression its hit some of those Ice fragments. (anyone who's seen TB10 will know Alans' not the best driver)
The other ships a kit-bash of some of my other models.
... and by listening to the soundtrack to "The Amazing Spiderman" Pretty much on loop.
I will be at Forbidden Planet London, taking part in a book Signing for the "Haynes Thunderbirds manual" do feel free to drop in, i'd love to say hello...
It's on the 21st of July at 1pm.
