MPC 1/72 Space 1999 Eagle 1 Transporter Model Kit
Licence: Space: 1999
Model Number: MPC791
The MPC 1/72 Space 1999 Eagle 1 Transporter from the plastic Sci-Fi model kits range accurately recreates the spacecraft from the Space:1999 television series. This model requires paint and glue to complete.
Space:1999, which originally aired in 1975, featured the crew of Moon Base Alpha as they found themselves stranded on our moon as a nuclear disaster knocked it from Earth's atmosphere. Sci-fi fans remember the outstanding special effects and production values of the show. The hero ship of the show was the Eagle-1 transporter, and MPC is proud to return this classic kit to the market. The highly detailed model features simple assembly and measures 12" long when built. All new updated decals are included.

It makes you wonder
Great service from Wonderland. (as always) As for the Model, I don't think I've EVER had an "MPC" Kit shows what Scale it is on the Box or the Instructions / Literature included therein. This one is no exception, so I can't help but wonder where this 1:72 Label came from. TV & Film Miniatures, particularly Sci-Fi, rarely have a real (1:1) Prototype from which to create an accurate scaled-down version. At only 12" (at 1:72) this "original" would only be 72ft long.

Ready for Launch
This is a really nice model. I added some lights to mine for affect and spent time drilling out between the bars and the cockpit for added affect. Scratch built some internal parts to the pods as inserts and then mounted it on a base. This is a nice model and if your prepared to put the time into drill cut and scratch build it can be improved no end to the point it is as good as the onset TV miniatures.

Main Mission to Eagle One!!
I remember buying and building this kit when I was a youngster, the original release. The model hasn't changed much although the tooling is a little better. To build an accurate representation of the filming miniature a modicum of modelling skills are required, however a good result can be achieved by anyone as the kit is easy to build and a good decal set is included. This will appeal to all fans of the series both old and new, however buy soon as I can see this re-release flying off the shelves. Final model is about 12 inches in length an a fairly accurate representation of the original.
