TAG-15 is not perfect, - some episodes are written as badly as 2004, (See my reviews, I say what I think!) But there is excellent potential, and the visuals and motion have been slowly improving as the series goes on. - The multiple launch in the final episode of season 1 is beautifully done.
i think we are a bit behind down under with episodes but will keep an eye out for those real models , i didnt know they were trying to improve on them ,that is good news.

Oops! I should clarify, in the UK Season 1 is the whole first batch of 26 episodes, so yes, Breakdown and Recharge are in the second lot of 13. Season 2 (the next batch of 26) should air at some point in the UK later on this year.

Actually i did some research on this ,dont know why, this is a rocket not a plane and thunderbird 1 dosnt really exist in the real world also a standard airplane dosnt have a massive set of rocket boosters at the very rear so to pull the rocket nose up the wings would work further forward or the nose might not lift because the balance is counteracted by the rear heavy thrusters and how full throttle they are , on low speed the ship would drop like a rock that's why it has vertical thrusters but at super fast speed it would need more to keep the nose up hence wings are no good back there. anyway aerodynamics dont really work very well with a rocket going 6000 miles per hour or what ever thunderbird 1 is suppose to reach,

wow disputing over something that isnt real such fun.

To misquote Gene Roddenberry - The Thunderbirds ARE real vehicles! They are ones designed for storytelling.

Yeah, maybe best not use that link, first thing that happens is that your computer gets blocked by Microsoft and you have to pay to get it unlocked.
