Brendan: These designs were from a version of the THUNDERBIRDS live action movie that was developed by Working Title Films in London, with the director, Peter Hewitt, some years ago. I was hired to design new versions of the vehicles and costumes. I was going for a sixties style, to evoke the flavour of the original TV series, but obviously, updated. The idea was that the Baldwin brothers were going to play the Tracy gang with Robert Redford as Jeff Tracy. As we all know, this version didn't make it as the producers grew nervous and then hired Star Trek's Jonathan Frakes to start over from scratch... I can assure you, I had nothing to do with what followed.
