PROFESSIONAL MODEL MAKERS OF 1968
HERE'S A NICE LITTLE FLASHBACK movie. We particularly like the large-scale Spitfire, made for the air battle sequences in a World War II movie.
SMN report: The video includes a look at models made for Gerry Anderson, creator of famed TV series such as Thunderbirds, Joe 90, and many others.
And talking of Anderson productions, we are lovers of Japanese retro-art from that era, especially the luscious painterly style used in particular by the likes of Aoshima and Imai. So here's a mini-gallery of that art. Yum.
Thunderbird 1 (below) is the swing-wing machine that's marked out as the T-Birds flagship.
