The Atlantic Tunnel
One for the die-hard model fans to enjoy perhaps, this strip saw The Hood attempting to stop International Rescue in their tracks as Brains and Alan venture forth in search of a unique element in order to enhance the Thunderbird craft. The task leads the pair to a massive tunnel network being constructed underneath the Atlantic Ocean, where deposits of the element are to be found.
The strip itself features a breath-taking look at how the tunnels are being built – it would be like seeing a Graham Bleatham cross-section come to life! Given that we saw some huge mechanical Sidewinder-type vehicle in the ‘Introducing the World’ teaser video, it would be great to see the same contemporary model action applied to “The Atlantic Tunnel”.
