The Takara 1/144 Scale Rescue Mecha Collection Subsidiary Elevator Car!
Here we have the 1/144 scale Subsidiary Elevator Car. Like the master Car, this vehicle made its sole appearance the premiere episode of Thunderbirds, Trapped in the Sky. Thunderbird 2 appears to be able to carry four elevator cars at one time. The Master car operator must coordinate the operation of the subsidiary cars single handed. In the episode, one of the subsidiary cars develops a fault in its radio control receiver and careens out of control into a nearby unoccupied airliner. This forced Virgil to summon the fourth car from TB2.
As with the Master Car, this model is gorgeous. At 1/144 scale, all of the structural details look brilliant. Don't take my word for it, a picture is worth a thousand words. Enjoy!
