Default New Eagle Transporter / Gerry Anderson model website

After months of effort I've finally managed to put my first website together to showcase my models, reprint some of the articles I wrote for various magazines and keep people up to date on Eagle 1.
I didn't have too much in the way of instructions in how to do this sort of thing so its fairly basic but hopefully you should find something of interest as there are plently of Eagle and other Space 1999 model photographs.
Thanks to those who have already had a quick look and given me valuable feedback, spelling errors/layout faults etc. I've made several changes and hopefully there aren't too many bad bits now.
Go to http://www.davidsissonmodels.co.uk and hopefully it should appear.
Now I think its time to do some more modelmaking.
cheers

Yeah, come on! In the week you've put that site together you could have knocked out three more Eagles.

Anyone interested in tackling a large scale scratchbuild should head over to Dave's site as soon as possible. Highly recommended.

Probably best off in The Hangar, this - I'll move it a bit later.

Unless one of my 'young padewan learners' want some moderating practice?...

(See bottom left of page) No 'Shadow Topics' please - it get's messy.

Thanks guys
I really need to give this a rest now as my eyes are square.I'm just glad I'm not running a forum
Pressing buttons is just too much hard work.

Heh, I can see that you have been tweaking the site a bit, bloody time consuming job isn't it. It is looking much better now though, nowhere near as cluttered.

Absolutely excellent...I can see this site took some time to put together. Well done that man !!!

Some great reference material there - answers a few questions on Hawks and gives some helpful angles I hadn't seen pictured before in this detail.

I think I can say that we all appreciate your efforts on this site David...cheers and keep it up

Yes you were right about the index - I think I managed to slim it down by one and a half screens.
Thanks

Cool! It was your article on building the Starbug that inspired me to make this.

Great site, the Hawk pictures will be especially useful!
