1/48 SPACE 1999 EAGLE 2 with Booster.
Posted by Jim Kirk on Saturday, September 11, 2021 10:38 AM

Here is my Eagle 2 build up.

I swaped out the kit supplied plastic Engine bells for the Aluminum parts. I also lit the Cockpit. As There were no other lights on the original filming miniature, I didn't feel the need to add more lighting for the sake of it.

The model was Airbrushed a slightly off white base coat(I mixed Tamiya Paints to match the kits plastic). The panel shading was again achieved with my airbrush with panels masked off using Tamiya tape cut to various sizes. Some of the detail was scribed into the actual plastic.

The Model was weathered via Air Brush, Pastels, pencil and paper towel.

I scratch built the base and added lights to simulate the landing platform in the series.

All of the tubing need to have mold seams sanded smooth.

Thanks!

Really well done.  The picture of the Eagle planetside with the reddish/orange sky really reminds me of images from the series.

So nicely done and so nicely presented. I have to say I always enjoy your presentation/photography skills as much as your modeling talent. In some of your images on this build there is an impressive amount of depth of field. If you don't mind me asking is it just very small apertures and long exposures or are you playing with any of the focus stacking software that is out there. Again a really nice build/presentation and thanks for sharing.

Ha, impressive! You could have told me dramatic tales of laborious post processing and I would have taken the bait lol. No matter what the photographic tools are I always enjoy your stuff, thanks again for sharing.
