Building Eagle Transporter from SPACE 1999 series

 Building Eagle Transporter from SPACE 1999 series

For those that lived in the 70's and 80's sure remember this classic TV Series; SPACE:1999.
read the Detail on Wiki...

in conjunction with another Group Build schedule in March 2011 in KL, i'll build another model just for the GB.


here is the box art... thanks to a fellow modeller - Landyshah@SMM for the photos.
and that is how the Eagle Transporter looks like in the TV Series.

For me this is a true design of a Spaceship :D

first order of business (after washing the plastic with dish soap to remove the moulding oil & dirt), is to cut the frame out.. since this ship suppose to have this frame exposed and showing the inside of it.






and a warning though.. this is no easy task!!

and to make matters worst.. i'll be using the manual drill... my wrist is now having a Carpal Tunnel Syndrome due to repeating motion of drilling...

i think by the time i'l done with this 4 frame... my arms would be 2 inches bigger :lol:

i also accidentally broke part of the frame in the process.. this will need to be scratchbuild later on...



and also you might note that the angle i'm drilling is not so nice on the 2nd frame since i tend to drill inward towards the frame as oppose to 90 deg. angle to the surface...

so the result is a "bergigi" frame!!!!

i really hope that some liquid putty would help hide the error on one of the frames...

so basically i'm 2 more frame to go ,.... let continue tonite shall we...

and these are the tools i'm using for the framing task!!!..



tedious-tedious..

C&C welcomed...

this is a fun build.. not opting for a really accurate build.. :D and this would be a normal passenger version (or is it a medic version) of the Eagle.

kuman :D
