MPC 1/72 Space 1999 Eagle Transport

March 12, 2023 · in Sci-fi · · 16 · 0.6K

This is my build of one of my favourite spacecraft. It looks like it is meant to be hauling junk around a lunar base all day long, a utilitarian design unlike some sci-fi craft. I did the cargo pod up as a rescue version as it adds contrast to the otherwise plain colour scheme.

  1. Very nice work, Matt! I need to do one of these some time.

  2. Nice! a blast from the past. I did one of these years ago.

  3. Very nice build. A lasting testimony of the design (maybe not the show...)

  4. Congratulations, Matt! Wonderful job!
    One of my favorite space ships too.

  5. Nice work, this came out great!

  6. This looks great, Matt.

  7. I grew up watching Space 1999 in the very early 80s so this brings back some fun memories (think I had a diecast toy of the eagle back then too).
    This kit is very fine and full of structure detail for such a small scale.
    I guess your paint and weathering get these details much more noticeable. What maker is this kit from?
