Supermarionation Puppet Restoration
Based on techniques learned from Supermarionation puppet experts Barry Davies and Richard Gregory, Lindsay and Justin Lee reworked and restored replica Scott Tracy, Lady Penelope and Brains puppets (originally sculpted by Christine Glanville and Mary Turner for Thunderbirds in 1964) to look as close as possible to their ‘60s counterparts.
The process involved
sculpting, moulding and casting new ears
restoring facial features lost over the years to over-sanding
creating new frames for Brains’ specs from reference material
painting, wigging and styling
making additional 1/3-scale accessories (sash, shoes, bow tie, etc.)
new replica eyes created by Tech-Optics
Scott Tracy, Lady Penelope and Brains are now ready to take on an International Rescue mission!
