    It used to air during the 90s. As did Captain Scarlet, Joe 90 and Stingray.

    Wikipedia has a synopsis for the season finale and "Inferno" seems to now be airing as episode 25 rather than 22.

    I've dissuaded myself from buying it by noting that the lack of simulated weathering, compared to the studio model, makes it look somewhat toy-like. Plus the fact that I don't have room to display this monster and all of the vehicles.

    When you read through the documentation it does actually talk about how to the weathering.

    Got to be careful not to cock it up though and, for best effect, use an airbrush with which you are skilled. I'd worry too much that my lack of skill would make a complete mess of a very expensive kit. It might be cheaper to import the original Japanese kit, provided one can make sense of the instructions. Perhaps start with the smaller and simpler TB1, for which videos are available on YouTube. One guy there makes some very elementary mistakes but eventually manages to build a reasonable TB1 - although he had to buy a second kit to fix his cockups.

    ETA: Scale Spacecraft Modelling by Mat Irvine probably offers the best advice on weathering and other techniques.

    Hyperspeed featuring the Doctor/IR teamup I was fanficcing about, except not, but great to have David Tennant back with his actual accent and playing a slightly mad genius.

    In my fanfic, the TARDIS is Thunderbird Zero, having met Jeff Tracey years before and given him the idea with "assistance and advice available immediately". The Doctor then meets the Tracey boys on another adventure when an alien warhead needs retrieving but the TARDIS' advanced tech would trigger it - Thunderbirds Are Go!

    There's some spoilers for the season 2 finale. There was an interview with Rob Hoegee last year (around 11 minutes into the video) although he doesn't reveal specifically what happens.

    New episodes to run in the UK from May the 18th, and acc. a report they will feature... blast, can't recall how to work spoiler text, so a vehicle familiar from the original, and an important voice role for Lee Majors.
