Screw all those "cheese pieces" and panels w/o studs, all you need is good old bricks and plates. Ace build.

I love how he even left the bay hollow and built two of the ships it carried.

Very impressive MOC.   My word that takes me back; - as a kiddie I always made sure I wouldn't miss Thunderbirds on the telly.

Oh man it looks like it came straight out off some retro Thunderbird video game, and you can remove the top, freakin awesome build!

That's a lot of green bricks. I'm kind of surprised it doesn't collapse in on itself with the inside being hollow. Awesome build!

The builder clearly added some support to try and avoid just that. Here is a better shot of the inside where you can see the inside supports....
