About this deal

Please include what you were doing when this page came up and the Cloudflare Ray ID found at the bottom of this page. When building these 14" ones I usually use decals to do the panelling but on the 22" I tend to mask and paint. This model is a very impressive display piece and is a must if you really want to show off your Eagle Transporter.

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. The Meta Probe was bizarrely shortened, but the Hawk looked pretty accurate from the (quite poor) photograph used on auctions. This ALL NEW kit of the starship features authentic detail and is based on the original filming miniature used in the production of the television program.While the kit’s plastic engine bells look good, the metal parts in the aftermarket set are terrific details with extremely thin edges. The set includes options for three versions of the stun gun and includes viewscreen and ID badge variants on the water-slide decal sheet. I've bought some black photographic sheeting to hang behind my models when photographing them, but I've not got around to trying it yet. 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. The star vehicle of the ground breaking work was the Eagle, the venerable workhorse of Moon Base Alpha.

Next, I jumped to Step 21 to build the cargo/passenger pod and painted it orange with gray window surrounds to represent a VIP module.I painted the tubular frames then glued them in place around the walkways, setting the parts aside to dry completely. 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 Eagle nose cone is a cast of the third Eagle model, and the side pods and passenger pod cast from David Sisson's replica. You can vary the height depending on the length of the plastic tube from approx 4 inches to 6 inches (100mm to 150mm).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. The first part contains pages packed with photos on high quality glossy paper (the first 8 pages comprises the cover and both sides of a fold-out poster).

I painted them flat black and installed the parts along with the flying display piece for the stand.The kit includes a large colourful decal sheet, a full-colour decal location guide, and a dome base with a metal support rod for a nice clean display. Construction and painting requires significant model making experience (the instructions are generally regarded as inadequate, although these have been expanded in later editions).
