An early cutaway of Thunderbird 4

Cutaway drawings (sometimes referred to as cross-sections) have always been a big favourite, and has played a major part in the success of Thunderbirds publications over the years.

As early as 1966 the first cutaways were published within the "City Magazines Christmas Annual" and were repeated many times in the following years. With the revived interest in Thunderbirds in 1991, a whole new run of cutaways were produced by Graham Bleathman.

Graham was again commissioned in 2012 by "Haynes" to draw a completely new set of drawings that turned out to be so popular that the book has had to be reprinted at least three times.
