This is the place were i want to show my work.What i do for my hobby.

As all people from my age i was an enormus fan off the THUNDERBIRDS in 1965 when this came on tv for the first time.The next day i  made  thunderbird 2  from paper so as i thought that it wouldt look like.After that i made also a compleet tracy island on the attick with house and the palm trees and ofcourse the swimming pole.I dont have pictures from this but when i had them i wouldt share this with other people.I like science fiction movies were futuristic planes and models are used.

And i mean not cgi but the real handcrafted work like Derek Meddings did in the sixties.

I had never couldt dream  that i made models like this in the future.My models are used to for filming in the new episodes from THUNDERBIRDS 1965.The model off thunderbird 2 what was 40 inches tall and i have made two miniatur models thunderbird 1  6 inches tall and thunderbird 2   10 inches tall.And i was completely surprised that they have asked me to make the models for these episodes.I couldt not even dream this, that this wouldt happen.
