This Rolls Royce is FAB!

   Sticking with the Supermarionation theme I'd like to present the Konami FAB 1 from Gerry Anderson's Thunderbirds.  I do so love Thunderbirds.  It's arguably Gerry Anderson's finest television achievement.  Due in no small part to this gorgeous vehicle.  In the show FAB 1 is owned by beautiful secret agent Lady Penelope and driven by her ever resourceful butler/chauffeur Parker.  The vehicle concealed enough gadgets and weapons to make James Bond, The Green Hornet, and Batman jealous.  The Konami trading kit is very nice and highly detailed.  The really amazing part is the sculpted interior.  It's worth noting that Gerry Anderson actually had the permission and blessing of the Rolls Royce Corporation when this vehicle was put on the screen.  Enjoy!

  1. I really am going to have to start collecting T-bird stuff - just after I've finished SpaceX :-)
