Here are some quike photos of my basic kit. the Eagle 1 from Space 1999, I'm showing mine without the transport module.. mine had a few too many problems to fix for now,  I'll revisite it later and maybe make a paint stripping tutorial..

White Base Coat Applied...............................................................................

 

space1999build06

 

Finished up my seam filling and sanding.. I am not 100% happy with the top of the transport module, but it was very hard to get that seam even.. 

I dislike painting white, because it seems to show up every little problem.. but here is the kit with my white basecoat down and ready to start on the rest.. and yes I'm doing this kit in sections.. LOL

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

 

space1999build04

 space1999build05

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 ...............................................................................

 

space1999build02

 space1999build03

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....

At the Beginning ...............................................................................

 

space1999start

 

Ok everyone for the Science Fiction build on Armorama, I've changed my mind from the Gundam to the Eagle One Transporter from the great TV Series Space 1999 which aired on British TV for 2 seasons 1975 to 1977.

Posted by on in Gundam RX-79 Build

Just the Start of a new Build...............................................................................

This kit is a 2 for 1 kit bundled with a Gundam RX-79 and its opposite number a MS-06J Zaku II.   This is BanDai Item # 11069, made in Japan, dated 1996.

This a BanDai skill level 4 kit when finished it will have 30+ points of articulation, I am not sure yet if that is one of the Gundam's or both of them combined.  Also over 130+ parts, and the kit will require painting to show the proper colors.  When finished it will build a 5" to 7.5" action figure.  and now for the start photo.

 

Gundamstart

 

All in all it looks like a fun kit to build.  I think I will build this one for the Sci-Fic Campaign on Kitmaker.net
