Saturday Film Club: Derek Meddings talks Thunderbirds
Recently, I found myself in a model shop coveting an Ashom plastic kit for Thunderbird 3 sat in its launch bay. It's my favourite Thunderbird but I don't really have storage space, never mind the time to build the thing.
It did inspire me to have a dig on YouTube and find this film where design legend (in the nerdy world of spaceship) Derek Meddings talks about developing the craft for Gerry Anderson projects. I'm not sure I believe the story about the crashing 'plane catcher though. Surely that would have been in the script?
