The Beswick Thunderbirds set of busts was a commission by Lawleys by Post to celebrate the famous Gerry Anderson Thunderbirds TV programme in 1992.
There were six busts in the set and were modelled by William K Harper. The set included Lady Penelope, The Hood, Brains, Scott Tracy, Parker and Virgil Tracy and were released in a Limited Edition of 2,500. However, it is unsure how many sets were actually produced. Each model measures approximately 4″ high.
The Beswick model numbers for the models are: Lady Penelope 3337; Brains 3339; Scott Tracy 3344; Virgil Tracy 3345; Parker 3346; and The Hood 3347.
