Although the Elevator Cars only appeared in the pilot episode of Thunderbirds: "Trapped in the Sky" they remain, to me, among the most memorable of vehicles. The realism of their movement as they drive out TB2's Pod is just so realistic! They look positively huge as they rock & roll out onto the tarmac of London Airport! Building a studio scale model of one was a real challenge simply because so few good photos exist of these vehicles. So once again , as with Firefly, it was a case of buying the DVD and screen-grabbing the photos from the actual episode. My sincerest thanks to my pal Keith Scaife for his help in doing this, and reproducing the photos the actual size of the model from which I drew full-size drawings.
