This site has some great stills from the Stingray and Thunderbirds Blu-rays:
We are continuing ...
I found an amazing DeviantArt gallery of Gerry Anderson material.
There's great photos of surviving models from Stingray and Thunderbirds as well as lots of great images of Space Precinct:

We have new images, thanks to Dan Hitchin, of Gary's work on the larger X-Bomber model, which looks really amazing.
I added pictures of the Showa magnetic pencil case to its page from a listing on eBay, (in slightly better condition than mine but ludicrously-priced).
Here's a few hundred MB of screenshots from the first disc.
I'm enjoying this series more-and-more - very creative and whimsical.
The second DVD has the last 8 x 10-minute stories, plus some special features.
I'll generate some screengrabs from it as soon a I finish watching disc 1.
I was thinking about TV for younger audiences and it occurred to me that, while you see a lot about practically all other (sometimes quite obscure) Gerry Anderson productions, you hear nothing about Lavender Castle.
With having a young audience in the house, I thought it might be interesting to watch.
So, I have a copy of the DVD, and this series is good.
It has a very unique visual style. It's also the first Anderson production that I've seen done with stop-motion (and it is amazingly smooth stop-motion - to the point where I wonder how it was done).
The episodes are only 10mins in length but the DVD picture quality is remarkably good.
I'll rip the DVD to disk and run some automatic screenshots.
In the meantime, I see that the show's maker has some interesting articles that show how the programme's visual style was determined:
Lavender Castle - Part I: How I met Gerry Anderson
Lavender Castle - Part II: The Hiccup!
Lavender Castle - Part III: The Long Wait
Lavender Castle - Part IV: Elation and Disappointment

Thanks to Dan Hitchin for the further images,
I thought I spotted something that looked not-quite-right about the engine struts, but Gary's been making big improvements.
There were a few problems with Site Search that I wasn't able to sort out, so the search feature has been re-done using a different engine that seems to handle the basics a good deal better.
It can probably use some further tweaking but is already a major improvement.
After this, I'll get back to work on the graphics work I was doing for the game ...
