Got some of the basic assembly done.  The fuselage section and the wing sections are shown. Its a pretty basic kit so far and yes pre-painted, but will have to enhace it a bit.

Mostly Assembled...............................................................................

Got some more work done on my Eagle Transporter, my kit is also a bit of a bare bones kit  there is a lot of detail skipped over, some not so bad others, not so good. there is no real detail over the top of the kit under the framework, and the landing gear is very basic, however on the other hand comparing this kit to the actual studio model, I think the MPC kit although lacking details, holds true to the actual shape and dimensions pretty well.

Now that the major assembly is ready I think I'll start painting..

More  Assembly ...............................................................................

I'm really enjoying this build.. in fact, I've watched the first 8 episodes of Space 1999 on hulu this last week... 

here are a couple of staged photo's, nothing is glued in place yet as I'm still working on fixing some uneven seams.. esp on the top of the pod.. I'm using Mr Surfacer and it is looking good......

here is a great link to a youtube video of the 1st 44 inch studio model being shown and even taken apart so you can see how they did the special effects magic... very interesting to me...

Start of Assembly ...............................................................................

 

space1999build01

Been working on my project a little. . and btw I have the MPC kit that is suppose to be in 1/72 scale, it is the Round 2 Re-release as they now have the name and the molds.. seems like they are buying out everyone.. lol... 

my kit is not all that complex and is decal heavy for a lot of things but at least it has the ACS nozzles for the sides, although you are suppose to add them after you have laid a decal down under where they go.. lol

There is suppose to be a 1/48 scale kit of the Eagle that is much more detailed.. 

anyways here is a photo showing my work so far.. not much flash but had to do some sanding so some of the parts fit together right..

I am thinking I will not go pure white.. been watching the show Space 1999 and I think an off white, very light gray/white might be a little better to my eye.. we will see....

Posted by on in Bantam BRC40 Build

Main assembly done...........................................



Got some more work done on the BRC-40. I know its going slow but winter is not my best building time. 

Now for a few things I've noticed in the assembly.

The chassis and body didn't match up very well as there was some warpage between one end and the other.. here is where the fragile parts got me again as while applying some pressure to get the front of the body to glue to the chassis correctly some of the the very very thin grill slats broke, something i'm working on fixing slowly. I recommend that anyone who has this also glue the front down first and apply the pressure to the back of the model, less fragile parts to break.

Also fitting the back half of the tire to the front piece took some work the front of the tire looks great but getting the back piece in without a seam is a little frustrating. (this is one of the things that would prob be best improved with one of the aftermarket offerings.)

there were a few very small fiddly bits on the body and I'm surprised I didn't break or lose any, esp the hood latches.

As always thanks for your interest in my builds

Some Body work.........................................................

I finally have some more done on the Bantam did some body work and inside work. I have to say the really small parts in this mini-art kit are very fragile. Esp the gearshift. It broke while I was trying to place it with the tweezers. Took an hour to get glued together right... so be warned if anyone gets one of these.. LOL

Getting the Chassis built.................................

There was some pin damage on the main chassis part, but it will be mostly unseen when the build is complete, and there is a lot of flash on this kit.. I still have some to trim and sand here and there.. every part seems to have a small bit and the main chassis part had a lot.. 

anyways here is some pics of the chassis.. lots of small parts and some were difficult to line up esp building the springs and shocks assembly, but so far so good.
