Thunderbirds Are Go Model Sets Revealed

 

ITV has released another teaser video to promote Thunderbirds Are Go, this time focusing on Tracy Island and other sets from the upcoming series. The video is available through the official Thunderbirds Are Go YouTube channel.

The miniature sets and craft have been lovingly made by WETA Workshop – the model makers behind Lord Of The Rings, The Hobbit and Avatar. The series music has been specially composed by Ben and Nick Foster, best known for their work on Doctor Who and Torchwood.

We're guessing this the base for The Hood. In Thunderbirds Are Go, Brains is of Asian origin. Could there be some link between him and the Tracy's beat-known nemesis? IN the original series Kyrano, Jeff Tracy's servant, was related to The Hood.
