Thunderbird 2 - the real star of the Thunderbirds series.


This was the craft that brought the rescue equipment - in a huge special cargo pod.
The diecast metal Dinky toy has swing down plastic legs to raise it above the ground after releasing the pod.

The Dinky Thunderbird 2 has released the pod and is raised up on it's four retractable legs. In the series there were many pods available, each containing different vehicles and equipment.
Thunderbird 4's pod was, appropriately, pod '4'.

Thunderbird 4 - International Rescue's submarine.
It's approximately the correct scale and the right colour - pity there are no markings on it. As you can see, the pod door swings down to form a ramp.
