  1. Apparently, sometime in the past I built an Airfix Eagle. Probably in the late Seventies. I don't remember doing so, but there you are. Anyway, I discovered it in a box a few years ago and it's been hanging around in the mancave crying out for a refurb. Now is the time. I recently discovered the magic of Dettol as a paint stripper. I've just finished a build, so with a clear desk I set to. The kit came apart quite easily, the ancient tube glue having crystalized over the years. Bits got dunked into the Dettol for 24 hours at a time and scrubbed. Forget a six inch bru
  2. Hello all, Like many of us of a certain age, I grew up watching Space 1999 in the 70's. Looking back at it now, it's pretty cheesy, but the classic design of the utilitarian Eagle Transporter endures. I was smitten as a kid, and had the Dinky Eagle, in lurid green paint, and restored one a couple of years ago. I also got hold of the old Airfix 1/72 kit a few years ago, but when the 1/48 scale MPC Eagle kit was announced, I just had to have one. I was saving it for my retirement, so now's the time! Here's the box: ..and for those interested, here's the
  3. I have been working on a personal project of a 3D model of the eagle transporter for a number of years - on and off - off mostly. With my acquisition of a 3D printer, I dug the project out again after a suggestion that my chosen printer was not good enough to print the model at the studio scale size of 44 inches. I like a challenge but after a bit of measuring i thought it foolish to create such a monster, my house is small, so I upped the difficulty and decided to go for a 33 inch size (roughly 1/32) as it fits nicely in the sizes of commonly made ET replicas and kits,
  4. I finished up this project about a month ago for a contest. The model I used was not a production MPC kit, but rather one of the 12 first run test shots done last September (Jamie Hood made a brief mention in the special SF&FM Eagle issue that one went to a Jerseyfest contest winner, that was me). I documented the early part of the build for this on Youtube, but kind of lost interest when the production kits came out. Still, I knew I had to finish it so I got done what needed to be done before the Wonderfest convention. Technically there are still some things I want to do to it as I need
  5. Forbidden Planet has a pre-order price (for later in May 2016) of £109.99 plus (I think) £7.50 P&P. Does anyone know of a better offer in the UK? (Hannants are out of stock at £129.99)
  6. So my second entry will be yet another Gerry Anderson production iconic vehicle, this time from the mid 70s and Space 1999, the Hawk. This vehicle only appeared in one episode (War Games) but was released by Airfix/MPC as a kit so has found an enduring fame. This is not the injection moulded kit from Airfix but the resin version produced by Warp, which is REMARKABLY similar to the Airfix kit... ahem... So as you can see its resin and white metal. There are no decals in the kit so I'm going to have to do some research to check on that. I had the Airfix kit back in the 70s and I've see s
  7. My next project will be the Eagle Transporter of Space 1999 fame. I will always have fond memories of the first time I watched Space 1999 on our black and white TV, this was sometime in the 1970s, I was immediately hooked to this series by the opening sequence of the crashing Eagle and the title tune. From that day onwards I always wanted to have a model of the Eagle Transporter and yes I also had a crush on Maya. I never remember seeing this model in a toy shop, we didn’t have model shops in those days, and if I ever saw one, an Airfix series 6 model was certainly out of my pocket money rea
  8. Stumbled across this today: Cult TV Man has a special limited edition of the Space: 1999 Eagle with Lab pod and booster pack announced. Still the basic Eagle kit will be the same and not a retooled one: http://www.culttvmanshop.com/Space1999-Eagle-DELUXE-Edition-from-Round-2MPC--4995--PREORDER-RESERVATION_p_3004.html Rene
  9. Just a few pics of the 11" resin Hawk I recently built Nearly done.... Finished, with a stand copied from one supplied with a model submarine I actually sold this one, but I'm ( slowly ) building another And finally, a gratuitous pic of my resin Lab module and my 30 year old ( hence the discoloured paint ) Airfix Eagle
