Thunderbirds movie FAB 1 prototype up for sale

A prototype model of the FAB 1 car used in the 2004 Thunderbirds movie directed by Johnathan Frakes has been put up for sale on

FAB 1 prototype model

Made from fibre glass and plywood, the model was created in the early stages of production to illustrate the concept for the redesign of Lady Penelope’s car FAB 1.

The model was used as a visual aid for the design of the vehicle’s new body shape, radically different from that of the design used in the original series. The main body of the vehicle has been painted baby pink with the passenger area painted black. The wheels are made of plastic and wood and are hot glued in place, painted black and silver.

The FAB 1 prototype can be yours for the sum of £1495.00 ($1939.00) and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
