Thunderbird 3 - from cardboard tube and rolled paper!

JJ is Thunderbird mad at the moment! When his new drink bottle arrived this morning from H2Onya he immediately grabbed the cardboard tube it came in and asked for it to be made into Thunderbird 3! We are in the middle of building work at the moment in our kitchen and so I was up to my neck in emptying cupboards into storage, so a decision had to be made - carry on sorting or make a rocket from cardboard ..... easy choice! I happened to have some red sticky back plastic which was perfect, and the other packaging from the bottle came in great too. I also made use of the old wedding mags I was using to wrap glasses etc ruled up into tubes for the 'blast off bits' (technical rocket speak don't you know!).
Anyway, he was over the moon with the result and whooshed around for the rest of the afternoon!

Original drinks bottle and tube. (H2Onya with a flip n flow lid - these are great by the way)

scaffolding - NOT Fireman Sam's pole JJ!

Parked next to the other Thunderbird toys!
