Apparently Air Commodore Jayne Millington- run controller from the Thrust SSC team who will be familiar to anyone who's watched the documentaries etc- has passed away. :o

Thrust SSC Scale Models

Post by pmw1985 » Fri Jun 30, 2017 1:14 pm

Does anyone know of any large scale models of Thrust SSC looking for a coffee table centre piece before the misses puts a vase of flowers on there.

I have all 6 of the LLedo models including the Microcadim model but would like something of a bigger scale.

Many thanks,
Perran

There is a model by John Shinton & Bizarre. Both 1/43 scale, about 19 inches long. Very hard to find & fetch high prices when they do appear.

Anyone following the BSSC Facebook page lately will have seen the car being put together at a rate of knots ahead of the imminent runway runs at Newquay. Yesterday it was taken off the build jig and sat on some wheels for the first time-

Hmmm, what happened to the huge logo on the sides for that well known Chinese car maker?

Geely logo is back on there, Jordan - just the wording's not in English!

Great to see another landmark step.
