Default PRODUCT ENTERPRISE VIP 23" EAGLE & MY FLEET

Well, have almost finished my PE 23" VIP Eagle conversion i just have to tidy up some of the paint edges.

Conversion is sympathetic to my other PE Eagles and weathering and detailing keped to the same levels as PE. (with a little artistic licence)

The Rear boosters and feet have been resprayed,

And thanks to a shadow 2 driver one of the pilots has been replaced by the EVIL Commissioner Simmonds.

Sorry about my over exposed pictures

Overall i am very happy with the result.

I have also included a few pics of some of my Fleet of Eagles.























PS I am no Jim Small when it comes to modelling i am a mere Padwan.

Cheers oliver, I only said i would buy one and look whats happened... they multiply!!!!

I still have a few touch ups to make to the VIP 23" eagle but it's 99.5% complete.

I have to make some space for the PE 23" Freighter and Hawk ... oh and i had better get some flowers and chocolates for my Wife before i drive her insane!

I was wondering how long it would be before some one did a VIP Eagle. I just ordered a second 23" Eagle to convert to a VIP Eagle. The paintwork on yours looks great and you have done a great job of displaying your collection. Well done.

Thanks, space2099

PE23" eagles are a bargain at arround 199, my vip conversion looks much better in the flesh, the camera seems to highlight every little imperfection but as i said its 99.5% finished......... as are most of my projects... including the bathroom

Wow! Congratulations! What an amazing collection. I think Mrs. Transporter would kill me, if I had that many 23" PEs. You better buy lots of chocolate for Mrs. Eaglemagnet....Hmmm, what could I sell to make more room in my hobby room...?

A verry impressive collection. The 23" VIP Eagle is really nice. Even my wife (!!!) was impressed when I showed her the pictures.

Perhaps I have to place an order for another 23" Transporter soon.

The way you display your collection is also very neat.

Thanks for sharing it with us

Holy poop! That's a lot of Eagles, EagleMagnet! Great collection.

I have to say...It's seems a bit odd to see Simmons sitting in the command module of the VIP Eagle (especially in the main pilot seat).

I wouldn't expect any less Eagles for someone who's called "EagleMagnet"

Very cool. Really well displayed too. I wish I could get the 23" collection you have there... one will be enough sort of.

It's really useful to see how other people display their collections. Really nicely done and very tasteful.

The 12" Eagles are displayed in IKEA Bertby display cases (52 each)
the 23" eagles are displayed on and ARGOS 5 tier powder coated wire shelving cat no 700/1040 it only cost 24.99p and has some nice metalwork that resembles the Eagle frame, Max shelf weight is 330KG so its perfect for PE23". Highly recommended if you live in the uk!
