Thanks for the positive comments! Its just a question of looking at the original videos of the Thunderbird 2 launches from the launch bay! There are some other launch bays ( mainly in 350 scale ) that are pretty good but some of the detailing is incorrect! I'm trying to make mine as accurately as I can to the original!

Girders arrived today! I'm very pleased with them! My friend has done an excellent job! They are only free standing until fixed into the launch bay!

Right hand side of control room! The girders will not be fitted as they are here but will be situated in the launch bay in each corner and the centre of the room.
