Supermarionation Puppet Restoration
Skilled with the building and finishing techniques from Supermarionation puppet experts Barry Davies and Richard Gregory, Lindsay and Justin reworked and restored replica Lady Penelope and Brains puppets (originally sculpted by 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 (shoes, necktie, etc.)
Lady Penelope and Brains are now ready to take on an International Rescue mission … or awkwardly watch TV at her house.
