The DOMO 1, my latest rescue vehicle from the DeAgostini Thunderbird 2 Build.
The DOMO or The Demolition and Object Moving Operator was designed by Mike Trim, and seen in the episode, ‘The Duchess Assignment’. It’s driven by Scott Tracy who refers to it as ‘The Restraining Outfit’ and is used to hold up the unstable gable end of a country house where the Duchess of Royston is being held prisoner down in the house’s cellar.
The three jointed arms are apparently capable of lifting up to fifty tons in weight, and the three suction cups at the end use an artificial gravity field enabling them to attach to any surface( although in the episode they do slip off for dramatic effect)
Although the Pod used in the episode is clearly number 3, the DOMO appears to emerge from Pod 4, according the sign on the Pod wall. The same goes for The Mole which also appears in the episode.
The DeAgostini model is another winner as far as I’m concerned. I did give it a dark wash to tone it down a bit and take away the toy- like look.
