It would had been cool if the Zombites had made another appearance in Thunderbirds. Just imagine what if they had made an alliance with the Hood?   One fan imagine a TB fictionnal intro to imagine what if the Zombites returned. ;)  youtu.be/-OXoCB6BnTE

Ramjet fighter - It seems like something that makes sense, but never works out very well...

At the time, they only had a very limited idea about how ramjets actually worked.

These guys are using some pretty old tech, all that fighter is is a heavily modified F-104 starfighter. Nice work by the way.

Not old at all, but brand new cutting edge tech in 1965.  And thanks!

Exactly!  There is another fighter I am looking at which is suspiciously like a Saab Draken lol

It makes perfect sense though, in 1965 on a tight budget, why not adapt versions of the cool real fighters that were around then?

That and the 104 still looks like something out of sci-fi, all speed all sexy.  I am lucky to have gotten to see a flying demonstration of it some years back and it was amazing.
