Very sad to hear about Mr.Anderson's passing.Just this year I received the complete "Space:1999" series on DVD.I remember a very good article about him and the Supermarionation process in Starlog magazine in the 1970's.R.I.P.'ll be missed.

Gerry Anderson split from Sylvia back in the 70's,it was not a happy split and Gerry had to sell the rights to most of his programmes to pay for the divorce.He did remarry however.A more in depth obituary is here Puppet-master Gerry Anderson went to war with his real Lady Penelope | Mail Online the story behind Thunderbirds I think is quite touching.

I think it takes a rag-tag bunch of paper model junkies (like us) to properly recognize a real loss like this. I'm glad so many here celebrate his life, contributions, and unusual artistry. A life well spent, in my judgement. What I miss, and what really hits me is that he was a model builder. Just like all of us. Goodbye, fellow modeler. :mad:

Calling Doctor Who. Please regenerate Gerry Anderson. Earth is begging you.

Some T-Bird stuff on first page, but the rest of the site is well worth exploring.
It's mainly a catalogue of references to other sites, but it's well put together.
Don't go there if you're a sucker for cubies .. there's hundreds of them.

Fristly my condolences to his family and friends. Gerry Anderson was Britains answer to Walt Disney, a man years a head of his time. a great visionary, and he will be saddly missed but his creations will live on for ever. may he rest in peace.
