This is a lovely kit from Japan that was so good I built it virtually out of the box. The only thing I did change was the silvered screw was stripped and repainted with Alclad polished aluminium. I scratch built the base as well to set it in the Thunderbirds episode "City of Fire"

They made such an accurate model of the original studio model that its only got decals for one side, just like the original - in the series you only ever see the Mole from one side :)

This won a bronze at Scale Model World in 2015.

Absolutely brilliant and the diorama sets it up beautifully. The model makers that worked on the series and even Gerry Anderson himself would be pleased with this and I bet they'd love to see it.

I've often looked at Thunderbirds model kits on Amazon and eBay but I couldn't justify some of the prices people are asking for them.

This kit is still in production in Japan and not expensive - about £25 from HobbyLink Japan including postage!
