If that's an Eagle reference then probably. Go Nagai freely admits X-Bomber was heavily influenced by Gerry's work, especially Thunderbirds.

He just did it better. (Oh yes I really did say that!!! ;p)

I think GA's version was sexier, plus he also had the Hawk. But it is a functional design nonetheless.

granted the Eagle and Hawk were sexier.

Doesn't change the fact X-Bomber was a million times than anything Gerry did. It's storyline was far better thought out. Plus it had a giant Mecha. :D

That's a fave!

What I like to see in sci-fi - practicality!!!

Yes sir. I even made the cargo module as three separate pods though I'm unsure they were in the series. But it made sense for them to be.

I did 4 different registrations for the ship and the pods so there'd be no duplicates in the images that will be coming soon with it in.

Thinking I may do some different pods as well, maybe liquid tanks, troop transporter, or maybe an EDF fighter transporter, like the modified Cylon Tanker from the original BSG.

Now that is what I like to hear - taking an idea and then taking it outside the box!

Go Nagai would be proud!

Well one can hope. Let's hope I can do justice to one of the things he had planned to introduce in series 2.

Probably won't be as he invisioned it but I hope I'd like to think he'd approve if it.... More on that soon.

There was a second planned series?!?!?! :Amazed:

Indeed of course poor ratings in Japan and the studio fire killed it before it began.

Do wish there was a bit more info about what was planned for it though or some sketches. I for one would have loved to know if Bloody Mary was going to return.

I <3 Makara. :D

Really!?!

Hmm maybe its for the best. That it ended there - worse thing is coming up with a really shit sequel to one of the best sci-fi programs ever made.

Ah. But it was a ratings killer in the US and UK. it just didn't appeal to the Japanese audience. I think it was because they'd been brought up on a diet of big mecha shows.

One thing I've discovered these past few months. The call for a follow up is pretty much universal from UK and US fans.
