This is a highly detailed and collectable display model from the tv series Space 1999. Not for playing with. Well, okay just a bit. It is a heavy die cast with some plastic parts and looks great on a glass shelf in my home office. I didn't much care for the series with it's dodgy science and blatant disregard for the laws of physics but loved the design of the spacecraft, so had to have one.
The product enterprise range of models are now so collectable they can change hands on ebay for £60-£100. You will need to hang on to the sturdy and colourful box it comes in as this adds to it's collectable value if you ever intend to resell. Just a word of warning. Once you own one, you'll want an Eagle Transporter, then an Eagle freighter, then a Laboratory Eagle.....well, you get the idea with that. It's a disease, and an expensive one too. Just convince yourself it's an investment and don't tell your wife/girlfriend/significant other, how much it cost. Enjoy.
