Even more Terrahawks! John Lee is coming to Supercelebration

We are excited to reveal that Terrahawks modelmaker John Lee will be attending Supercelebration in September.

Working under Special Effects Director Steven Begg and alongside fellow modelmaker Steve Woodcock, John designed and built many of the weird and wonderful space craft that appeared in the series. He has since gone on to amass a wealth of credits as director of photography on film and TV.

John will be joined at Supercelebration by fellow Terrahawks production crew members Steve Begg, Peter Tilbe, Gary Tomkins, Terry Adlam and Kaye Main.

Join us for a Supercelebration

The convention takes place from 20th to 22nd September at the 2019 Holiday Inn, Maidenhead.

Tickets for club members to Supercelebration start from just £75 per person for one day, or £130 for the whole weekend. In this challenging financial climate, we’ve managed to keep the ticket price the same as our Special Assignment convention in 2017.

That’s because we’re a fan club and no one is taking a salary.

Shane Rimmer, voice of Scott Tracy, has died

Shane and Sheila Rimmer

 

We are deeply saddened to hear of the death of Shane Rimmer at the age of 89.

Shane made a major and diverse contribution to the Anderson universe, guest starring in Space:1999 and Space Police (the pilot episode of what went on to become Space Precinct), scripting episodes of Captain Scarlet and providing the voice of the stop motion animated Dick Spanner. But, of course, he will always be remembered as the voice behind Scott Tracy, the eldest Tracy brother in Thunderbirds.

His wider career was just as prolific, and he was never far away from iconic TV and film productions. He appeared in no less than three Bond movies, and made a series of smaller appearances in Star Wars, Superman and the Batman movies. He also starred in classic sixties shows such as Doctor Who and The Saint.

With the support of his wife, Sheila (pictured above), Shane has been a great supporter of Fanderson over the years, and has always made time for fans. Shane was due to attend Supercelebration later this year in September, and was our first guest announcement. He will be missed by all.

We wish our deepest sympathies to Sheila and the rest of Shane’s family. A full tribute will appear in the next issue of FAB magazine.
