Description

MPC builds onto its lineup of 14” Eagles by adding the popular “laboratory pod” along with the powerful spine booster. I painted them flat black and installed the parts along with the flying display piece for the stand. When building these 14" ones I usually use decals to do the panelling but on the 22" I tend to mask and paint. In “Breakaway”, the Space:1999 premiere episode, it was clear to see that the iconic Eagle spacecraft was truly unique. Model maker Jim Small's kits modify the MPC/Airfix/Ertl Eagle to match the varied configurations with a high degree of accuracy.

This model is a very impressive display piece and is a must if you really want to show off your Eagle Transporter.Fitting Part 37 around the fuel tanks proved tricky; I installed the combustion chambers (parts 38 and 39), then added the fuel pipe (Part 42). In this configuration, the ship was well equipped to handle heavy lifting whether transporting nuclear waste canisters on its flatbed or when it was fully rigged with a powerful winch complete with magnetic hoist.

A second model, Eagle w/Lab Pod, is a version of the Eagle with a lab pod (as seen in The Metamorph); this first came out in 2003. 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. Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH).They include three options for the crew module windows: blacked out, crew in helmets, or crew without helmets.

Garage kits are made of polyurethane resin in limited numbers by non-professionals (unlike styrene injection molded kits produced by mainstream companies like Airfix, Revell, AMT and Tamiya). MPC introduces this all-new, accurately proportioned, and detailed kit of the iconic spacecraft in a precise 1/72 scale which can be decorated in one of three ways.Very neat and considering how much weathering you did in the build thread it looks remarkably clean Then again I do tend to dirty up my Eagles quite a bit. The legs won’t feature springs, but there will be two sets of legs in “landed” and “flying” positions. The Eagle Transporter is the iconic capital spacecraft featured in the Gerry Anderson show Space:1999. The Ultra Probe command module has been a popular product for various garage kit manufacturers, possibly because they could recast an existing replica. Can be displayed extended or retracted and is designed to allow the builder to install magnets (not supplied) for attachment.
