    Spacehawk - studio sized reproduction

    As there are no postings in this Terrahawks section I thought that I better make an entry. So here are a few pictures of my latest model build - the Spacehawk from Terrahawks. This is an exact reproduction of the original model used in the series - made possible because I've had that model for...

    Interceptor on ebay!!!

    Check out this currently advertised on ebay. Described as a 'professionally built well-made' model of the interceptor from UFO! Whoever made this, or is selling it, obviously hasn't seen the show in a while or they need their television set adjusting, as the word hideous doesn't come close to...

    Homemade Gerry Anderson - it's TME part 4

    Some of you will have seen my previous postings about my old Super-8 movie that I made back in the early 1980s. The film was inspired by a few things, such as 'Alien' and 'Thunderbirds'. However there was a big problem with my monster - you see it just could not move!! So for an alternative...

    Super-8mm Sci-Fi Epic (1980s)

    I managed to get my old Super-8 film projector working this weekend and looked at my old film reels, which date back to the early 1980s. Most of the film consists of rather crude model special effects - well actually that should be not-so-special-effects. Unfortunately the film became too big...

    Space:1999 - Replica Spacesuit Helmets

    I've not done much recently - well about a year and a bit! - so I thought I better get back to model making and finish a few projects. These are the first things to be completed and I thought it was worth a picture or two as you don't often (if ever) see three of these together. Directly copied...

    You Tube - Original Eagle 1 Today (revised)

    Thought I better post up another thread as the old one kindly put up by JL only takes you to a deleted link. The first film was really a test to see if I could do anything with my simple cheap digital camera. It seemed to come out ok, but was rather shaky and I wanted to fix it up a bit better...

    Page 3 Alpha Girl

    Don't know if this is old news but I've not seen it before. While visiting a friend of mine last week I happened to be glancing through his rather large Space:1999 magazine & newspaper clippings file, amazing how often the show has been mentioned over the years in various publications. Anyway I...

    Thought you might like to see these, courtesy of model maker/artist Dennis Lowe, who very kindly had a rummage through his old films to look for them. Dennis worked on the show towards the end of series 2 and took these behind the scenes shots on the episode Immunity Syndrome. If you are...

    Barry Morse 1918-2008 - Memorial Thread

    Sad news today in that we have lost a major Space:1999 star. Barry apparently passed away yesterday after a short period of ill health. I always thought he was one of the better characters in the show and a good talker at the conventions - I remember at an early Con he was only supposed to be on...

    SPV replica finally done.

    Thought I'd stick up a picture of my latest model, its the last of what I would call the super models - Anderson models that I really want/need. I made two changes from the original, 'glass' in the headlights and a mid-sized shark fin, instead of small or massive! The crummy old Dinkys just for...

    I've never posted an image before so thought I'd give it a try. Heres one of my favourite Eagle shots I found in Phil Rae's archive. Which episode was an Eagle attacked by a space broom?

    Another CGI Eagle

    It might have been mentioned here before but I saw this on Youtube and thought it was nice. It only lasts a few seconds but theres some really nice movement on the Eagle as it takes off.

    The BBC are preparing to do some sort of Gerry Anderson themed night probably in September. We are not quite sure of what it will involve but part of the plan is a documentary that I and several other Fanderson members have been involved with. See my website...
