I normally build resin kits but every so often, get an injection molded kit and build that.
This is a Thunderbird 2 kit from De Agostini Model Space. I bought it as a full kit instead of subscription and quickly built the model.
Since this is injection molded and I’m sure designed in CAD and tooled, parts fit, so it was pretty easy to slap it together.
I have no interest in the electronics and lighting because it looks too Toys R Us like so I never bother putting batteries in. Instead, build it as a display model.
The body is molded in the red and greens but I went ahead and added a few custom made decals to enhance the realism and was too lazy to pull out the airbrush, so I used pastels to weather the body. This was built so quickly, I didn’t even bother using solveset on the decals. I built this just to have some quickie fun with little regard to make it a detailed display piece. Sometimes, we need to slap something together and this was a good project for that.
