The Genius of Gerry Anderson
Thunderbird (1965)

At the same time as the previously posted Supermarionation series, the Royal Mail issued this Thunderbird – the best known work by Gerry Anderson.  In the same set, they issued special stamps with lenticular printing, to show the starting movements of four Thurderbird ships.

To share the effect of these stamps, I made four movies, 4, 3, 2 and 1 – click the stamp to guide you YouTube clips.  I am not equipped to add sound to these movies yet – this link would give you evocative memories.
