Things start to get radical in the latest instalment of Andy Brazier's Century Series Fighters saga. Looking like it's escaped from a Gerry Anderson show, here's the amazing XF-103 Thunderwarrior.

Definitely looks as though it was inspired by or inspired the Thunderbirds.
Also looks like it's related to the "Snark"
Another great build Andy, to remind us of the old Smoker Birds.

Whilst reasearching the XF-103 I came across the Snark and I did wonder to myself how much it influenced the Thunderwarrior design.
The Snark is better looking as well .
