There's a few ppl working on different upgrade kits, so I'm debating as to whom will get my money and which kit will be the best for making this little 12in Eagle more accurate.

The price isn't bad but I'd have to see all that's included in this upgrade kit. Hope pics come along soon.

Are these only resin parts or will there also be a photo-etch upgrade as well?
Is it WARPs original product or one bought from a different source?

Hi Richard,

The parts will be Warp original pattern parts. All Warp pods were designed to fit the Airfix/MPC Eagles. There is no need for photoetch as a kit is already available from paragrafix....this Warp upgrade will, if anything, compliment that particular item.

The parts will be all resin but, I am debating in my mind whether the landing legs may be cast in a new metal mold...as I think the main legs won't be that strong made in resin (one bad landing...and they're off...cartered!) but I may have another trick up my sleeve so as to avoid a metal casting...we'll have to see when the landing foot pattern is revised.

This kit should be available in approx 3 weeks but I'll be posting pics sooner than that as the kit progresses.

Hi Guys,

Sorry that it's taking a little longer than I expected. You know, if you are a model maker that you get into something, then you spot you want to upgrade something....Well that's what is happening with the passenger pod..I'm re-patterning as a hollow casting, so the doorway can be modelled open. This immediately begs for an interior....which will be a seperate project to this conversion.
Thank you all for your interest...This kit WILL be coming.

  1. Nose cone with cage attachment
  2. upgraded cage internal bulkheads
  3. A complete pod
  4. rear engine bells
  5. all underside thruster bells
  6. altitude thrusters
  7. landing feet/pad
Cheers for now.

Is this what your upgrade kit is offering and what will be the final price? (for less than £35.00? )Are these just cast from the existing WARP kits ( as complete WARP Eagle sells for about £79.95) Can you provide pics of the upgrade parts kit(s)?

I interested in the Passenger Pod interior (possibly with a few figures). Is that still in the works?
