JR21 Thunderbird 3

 

 

 

EMPIRE MADE Version.

 

This is  the first version & more true to the TV ship than the UK issue.

 

The pictures below show the Empire friction motor Thunderbird 3 in detail - just about actual size.

White to burners is spray painted as is black to struts & nose.

Plastic friction motor fixing has:

No 3

Registered design no 918623.

Made in Hong Kong.

In my opinion the crest inside the diamond consists of the letters H P & M intertwined.
