    Replicas Unlimited Hawk Kit

    Has anybody else built one of these? I broke down and ordered one simply because I am such a fan of this craft and wanted to collect all the models out there! It's larger than the much maligned Space Fighter Buteo, and while not accurate in many areas, I believe it can be made more accurate...

    Buteo Hawk...

    Anybody else built one of these? I've got one in the box, where it's been for about three years, and I bought it against the advice of a couple of guys I really trust. http://www.starshipmodeler.org/gallery9/aw_hawk9.htm Not the most accurate Hawk kit out there, but hey, even the studio...

    Eagle Inspired Model Rocket....

    Sirius Rocketry has just released a new model rocket kit, the USS Cestris, and the nose section looks a tad familiar.... http://www.siriusrocketry.com/sirius00.htm Just something I noticed.....[/url]

    SPACE: 1999 Nitpickers Thread....

    A few years ago, Phil Farrand released a series of books nitpicking all the production screwups, plot oversights, and other mistakes found in the various STAR TREK series. It was a scream to read and was borne out of one man's almost fanatical love for the shows. I was wondering if we could...

    Hawk (Buteo) Kit.....

    Okay, who here has built the Hawk "Buteo" kit, mastered by Alfred Wong? This kit got a lot of flack in an earlier thread, and somebody even sent me pictures of a very badly molded and manufactured kit to try and dissuade me from buying one. Well, I got one anyway, and the kit I got was very...

    Eagle Transporter Flying Model Rocket

    I flew model rockets as a kid (up until I was a teen adn cars and girls became the main interests!). And I remember Centauri Model Rockets offering a flying version of our favorite spacecraft. Our illustrious commander has one pictured on the main site. Did anybody ever have one of these? Or...

    The New BATTLESTAR GALACTICA

    Okay, who watches this show? It seems to be a love it or hate it scenario.

    Okay, Who's Built The WARP Eagle????

    I'm seriously thinking about buying one of these little gems, since it seems to be far and away the most accurate Eagle kit ever made. I've read Jim Small's review of the kit, but was wondering if anyone else had built one and what your experience was. Bottom line: Is it worth $130?

    Cylon Base Star

    Well, as part of my continuing attempt to replace those models of my youth that were inadvertently thrown out (not realizing that one day I'd be interested in 'em again), I made one more step forward today with the acquisition of a Cylon Base Star model from the original BATTLESTAR GALACTICA...

    Battlestar Galactica (TOS)

    Here are some pics of my Battlestar Galactica, updated with SMT's Detail Set. The first mistake I made was in tninking this would be easy. I had to use a Dremel to remove the sparse detail already on the model (my first time using one, BTW), and at times I was sure that all I had done was...

    Warp Mk IX Hawk...

    Here are some pics of my Mark IX Hawk, my first foray back into model building, completed in March of 2005.. Obviously, the pipework on the underside is totally off, but that's why they call us "beginners". I just tried to make it look interesting.... Here are some closeup shots, where...

    Custom Built Eagle One....

    Here are a few pics of an Eagle One model, custom built for me by Mike Reader... I believe it started life as an MPC model, but was heavily modified. I'm not sure if Mike used Jim Small's Eagle Authentication Kit or not, but you will recognize Jim's characteristic turned aluminum engine...

    Moonbase Alpha

    Here is my Moonbase Alpha model, recently completed. I hope to eventually have a frame built around the kit to hide the ratty seams.... I opted not to use the Eagles included with the kit because they are so out of scale. I also didn't care for the Main Mission diorama, but the kit would...

    Colonial Viper Kit....

    Not quite sure where to put this, but I just snagged a TOS Galactica Colonial Viper off Ebay, and for less than $30! Most of 'em I have seen go for a lot more! (Federation Models sells 'em for $75 bucks) My mom threw out the Viper I built as a kid; I was wanting to repaint it. This will be...

    The Hawk Appreciation Thread.....

    In another thread, I ran across several folks who had some less than complimentary things to say about the Mark IX Hawk from "War Games". So I want to hear from all the Hawk fans. I for one fell in love with this ship, and to this day it remains one of my all time favorite spacecraft designs...

    SPACE: 1999 Comics...

    Found this a few days ago while moving crap from one room to the other... It's the comic book adaptation of "The Metamorph", and also has an original (and quite boring) story called "Escape from Vipon". There's also a print only short called "Primitive Planet". Despite the way cool cover...

    Earthbound...

    Watched this episode again last night. A little slow for the first half, but man, what a climax! Simmonds is his usual agreeably slimy self, and gets his comeuppance in this show! I stlll recall how shocked I was at the ending way back in 1975; the image of Simmonds struggling in vain to...

    Dragon's Domain...

    I watched "Dragon's Domain" again this weekend, and had forgotten just how good this episode was. It took what could have been a standard "monster of the week" plot and turned it into something really special, and quite a departure from most other SPACE episodes. I'll admit, I'm still kinda...

    What Makes This Show Good?

    Okay, we love the effect and model work. We're all agreed. But what else is there that makes SPACE: 1999 so memorable. Personally, I like the fact that it's nowhere near as "utopian" as STAR TREK. The characters have their flaws. John Koenig many times lashed out in situations out of sheer...

    Studio Scale Hawk Commission...

    Our resident SPACE: 1999 modeling guru, Jim Small, has this fleet of Hawks under construction. http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c327/rightplace/Studio%20Scale%20Hawk/3Hawks.jpg One is earmarked for me (since I'll never own the studio model, a dead on replica is the next best thing!), one is...
