I am also going to put some scenery detail on either side of the ramp, make more palm trees and add some detail to the blast deflector.

Yeah but it's also a huge chunk of plastics, considering its larger then the TB2. Plus it's motorized and has sound.

Glad this coming out. Don’t need it now because of the direction of my build, but glad it will be abalible for those that want it.

Now where is that third pod kit?😁

Hi As I build this beast I watch ELEKTRIK's excellent videos of the launch pad and extra pods.
Is there someone from DeAgostini that can confirm a date when these will be available in the UK and other territories.

I know this build has been a slow burner but the molds are there so just use them
Come On and put us out of misery we modellers are willing to part with real money for these extensions to our Thunderbird 2Mad
