    The EAGLE of your dreams...

    There is a question for you fellow Alphans... If MONEY and SPACE were no objection... which Eagle model would you like to own? It looks like a silly question, but believe me, it's not. Your answer will be useful to trace a pattern (probably not a commercial one, but who knows who's listening...

    I'm discovering now the THUNDERBIRDS series (long story), and of course, I want badly now a Thunderbird 2 model! I remember very vaguely the series from my childhood (I'm 44 now), but remember very well a vinyl T2 I had as a kid (There were very little TBs toys here in Spain), although I can't...

    A very interesting prop from 2001 is the camera that the Clavius team and Floyd were using in TMA 1 (who could imagine then that in 2001 a digital camera would had been used). Do you know if there are more detailed pics out there of the prop? I couldn't find anything... Thanks in advance!

    ANOTHER!!! Eagle viewports theory

    A new theory about Eagle viewports (maybe not...) I've got a 22" AB Eagle kit, and decided to build a complete cockpit for it. So, I hollowed the CM and then lost the rear part of it... but this another history (PLEASE HELP ME!!! )...

    STRANGE REQUEST: 22" AB Eagle part

    Hello... I have a non-usual request for 22" AB Eagle kit owners (in non-assembled condition). I have one of these, bought from Comet when it was released many many moons ago. After much assembly planning, I've decided the only kit parts I'm going to use are the command module, the aluminium...

    About the Eagle cockpit seats

    I realized that the Eagle cockpit seats were used in the series at least in two more locations: In the Infirmary and in the Ultra Probe command module pilot seat. As you can see, the infirmary one is beige, although I'm quite sure black ones were used too. If you pay attention to the Ultra...

    A pleasant surprise: The iStand

    Yesssss... To be honest, first time I saw the iStand didn't appeal very much to me. It looked very... visible. But I had one as a kind prize for the pod contest, and placed it in a shelf just in front my computer desk, just above my head level. And it's really cool! It's a pleasant view to...

    Cmdr Straker: Failure!

    As I've recently discovered, Commander Straker probably didn't very well as SHADO commander, as he finished his career as shuttle pilot between the Space Station V and Clavius base, in the moon :D Ed Bishop performed the role of the Aries 1B pilot in 2001, and there's a scene when he descends...

    12" Eagle Pilots

    For those out there who like seeing pilots through the Eagle viewports (99% of us :D )... yes! they exist for the 12" Eagles. More or less, the 12" Eagles are estimated to be 1/100, or 1/96 (whatever), so you have perfect astronauts, seated, in that scale: The ones that come with the 1/100...
