Default Hello from Lancashire England

Hello my name is Paul, I live in the north west of England.

I am old enough to have watched Space 1999 on tv when I was a child.
A couple of my favourite toys when I was young were the Space 1999 eagles which I recently found when doing some clearing out in the loft.
They are quite play worn but I have already started to collect the various parts needed to restore them back to their glory days (maybe a little better).

I have been into radio control models since my younger days and went through a phase of racing at national level.
I had to give up the serious racing when the children came along and my radio control modelling interest moved toward 1/14 scale trucks and trailers.

I have recently taken up plastic kit building as the last time I built a plastic kit (apart from the rc truck bodies) was when I was a teenager. My current kit modelling interest is spaceships, with a few smaller star wars kits to get my hand back in with a few larger star trek enterprise & voyager that I plan to modify and illuminate.

When looking I came across the 22 inch eagle kit & knew that was the one I must build at some point.
Talking to my wife a few weeks back about xmas presents (she has just had major surgery so wanted to get it all sorted as its expected her recovery will take a unknown amount of time) & I mentioned the 22 inch eagle kit.

I have now got one sat in the loft which I am not allowed to touch till xmas but she also got me one of the 12 inch eagle kits by mpc to be going on with.
