Thunderbirds are go
Gerry Anderson .....
He and his wife Sylvia inspired millions of us kids around the world. I was only about 8 when I first made a model of Thunderbird 2, created by Gerry and designed by Derek Meddings see some of his original sketches....unlike thunderbird 3 thunderbird 2 was really unique and very creative for its design concept even influencing the concept design for the prometheus ship.Gerry created such series as UFO, Fireball XL5, Supercar, Space 1999, Captain Scarlet, Thunderbirds and my favourite feature film when I was a kid Doppelganger
Gerry you were one the first futurist incredibly creative your mind will be missed ...Cheers Bernie Walsh
