About this deal

They replace the VTOL engines under the ship and module as well as the main propulsion units; plastic baffles detail the last. I followed the instructions and assembled the crew module followed by the fore and aft walkways, painting subassemblies as I went.

MPC builds onto its lineup of 14” Eagles by adding the popular “laboratory pod” along with the powerful spine booster. The stun gun features a working slide stun/kill button and both the stun gun and comlock are hollow to provide space for custom electronics and lighting. It's very modular and so there's quite a bit of repetition and there was a lot of clean up to be done after removing the parts from the sprue. See The Gerry Anderson Memorabilia Guide (Dennis Nicholson) p218, Sci Fi and Fantasy Models No 39 p44. x 3" colour sheet of decals for the MPC/Airfix/Ertl Eagle kit (enough -with care- to cover two Eagles).

The previous release of the 12” version of the ship has always been well-received by fans and modellers everywhere.

The MPC Space 1999 Eagle Transporter 22" Long from the plastic Sci-Fi model kits range accurately recreates the spacecraft from the Space 1999 television series. Eye-popping Packaging: The striking packaging graphics make a great display when placed right next to your finished model.I spent 24 hours building MPC’s Eagle and recommend it to intermediate modelers and above looking to add one or more transports to their collection. The kit comes with an extensive water-slide decal sheet, a full-colour deco guide, and assembly instructions. You have the option of building the stun gun as a season 1 version with the flat top or a season 2 version with two different versions of the stun/kill switch. When building these 14" ones I usually use decals to do the panelling but on the 22" I tend to mask and paint.

Packed full of features: New season 2 uniformed pilot figures come with the kit as well as new “soft landing” shoulder pod landing gear action. Sold in a bubble pack, with red and black card art (series logo and rescue Eagle over lunar surface, art by Graham Bleathman). Its utilitarian nature was clearly demonstrated when the central passenger pod was swapped out to perform duties ranging from general transportation to rescue missions, but the feature became even more apparent when the cargo pod was implemented. MPC presents a Limited Re-Issue of the 22” model kit with details gleaned from the original miniature used during the production of Space:1999.The true origin of the Space:1999 Hawk starship is a bit of a mystery, but it was fully intended to be a formidable weapon. At 15” long, this kit is the perfect pairing to go with any of MPC’s popular 1/48 scale Eagle Transporter models.
