5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely FAB, 5 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Thunderbirds Manual (Agents' Technical Manual) (Hardcover)
I had bought an older Thunderbirds cut-a-way book illustrated by Graham Bleathman and thought it was an excellent book, full of colour and brought the machines, Tracy Island and Lady Penelope's manor house to life. Then I heard about this book.
Haynes are well known for their car manuals, but lately they have been producing material based on Star Wars and Star Trek. The exposed TB2 on the cover was enough for me to say YES and bought it.

If you enjoyed the previous cut-a-way books on Thunderbirds and other Gerry Anderson mecha then you will love this. Not only are the main five craft covered in detail, but so is every pod vehicle and Tracy Island. There are also character profiles, a history of International Rescue and a wealth of colour photos. The drawings are in both colour and monochrome, but all show Mr Bleathman's amazing detail work.

As a Thunderbirds fan this is a magnificent book and will be well-thumbed before the week is out. Now, can we get others from Fireball XL5, Stingray and Captain Scarlet? They each have plenty of material to fill out a book like this.

Yes! A Captain Scarlet manual showing all of Spectrum's vehicles would be an excellent idea.

What would also be a good idea would be profile drawings of the craft and equipment, much like the hard to find Japanese books on Gerry Anderson series.
