Notes

A sought-after example of this attractive Gerry Anderson’s Thunderbird model!
This Fab 1 model has a gleaming paint finish and jewelled headlights. Both figures of Lady Penelope and Parker are seated inside. Correct canopy for this late issue i.e. no pink lines. The canopy glides well. Number plate at front only (no signs of a rear number plate ever having been applied). Intact radiator emblem, six jewelled headlights, and correct silver baseplate/bumpers. Detailed five stud cast wheels are correct for this issue.
Small mark to the pink paint finish on a front wing. Cuple of tiny marks besides. In all original condition.
