UFO and its wide range of gorgeous vehicles have been an inspiration to LEGO® enthusiasts for many years. In particular, there are some very detailed and impressive brick-built models of the Moonbase Interceptor and the SHADO Mobiles out there which I simply drool over because of how big and complex they are. These builds are normally produced at minifigure scale or thereabouts. But instead of following the same path as the dedicated LEGO® and UFO fans that came before me, I decided that working on the vehicles in microscale would be the best approach to bring the SHADO fleet to life on my shelves.

The Legend Begins: A Thunderbirds Diorama
Take a look at this beautifully detailed diorama by Andrew Clements entitled, ‘The Legend Begins.’ By making use of kit pieces and miniature vehicles, some of which appear in original Thunderbirds special effects shots, Clements has imaginatively constructed a striking physical representation of how Thunderbird 1 and Thunderbird 2 might have been constructed. He has been kind enough to share images of his creation and given us a little bit more information about the thought process behind it.
