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.

"The Eagle has Landed" 31 July 2014
By Bowman - Published on Amazon.com
These "Gerry Anderson" Space: 1999 Eagle Transporter's were initially released in 2004 by (Granada Ventures) Product Enterprise. A co-existing arrangement with Aoshima allowed them to offer the exact same vessels with different packaging. This line has since been discontinued as evidenced by the price tags.

Pictured here is the "V.I.P." variant to the basic Transporter was that based upon Gerald Simmons ship seen briefly in the pilot episode "Breakaway". To change the center pod was to change the Eagles function. Other available versions were the Rescue, Medical, Freighter and Laboratory Eagles.

The Laboratory Eagle was also released as part of a "Deluxe Gift Set" that included a booster rocket, Laser Tank, & Alpha Moon Buggy. For the uber-collectors there were the limited edition gold & chrome versions. In 2005 Venture Products even released a 23-inch "Signature Collection" Eagle.

Growing up with the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo & Skylab missions totally primed my teenage years for the 1975 premiere of "Space: 1999" and I have always been fascinated by this iconic transport vehicle. It was such an incredible realization of what the NASA programs were teaching us...that no air meant no friction. Lunar vehicles (LEM) could now be of a less streamlined and more workhorse design.

Released in 1/72 scale, the transporter itself measures 11.087" (length) x 4.75" (width) x 2.375" (height). Made of a combination (PVC) plastic & metal parts it feels quite sturdy. That is until you detach the transport section and the one design flaw is revealed. This transporter is basically a forward flight module secured to an aft nuclear fusion engine array. This connecting "spinal" super-structure is made of plastic and is weak enough to be flexed when the lab is not in place.

All of the transport is plastic except for the metal forward flight module. This crew cabin is permanently connected to the (2) forward lift-off & decent engines. The machinery that powers these engines is enclosed in a tubular protective frame. Each side has a landing gear nodule. The actual landing gear appears flexibly shock absorbent but are in fact rigid.

This whole assembly repeats itself in the aft section with the only difference being an impressively detailed 4-engine main thruster array that resembles those of the Saturn V rocket. Both forward & aft sections are connected by this "spinal" superstructure. Transport & lab each have 4 reaction control thrusters that are exact replicas to those used in the Apollo program.

The whole craft is pre-painted white and has been given a dusted "dirty" look. All landing pads & engine machinery are grey. All engine & navigational thruster nozzles are silver. There is red, yellow, orange and black stripping on the framework, engines and side nodules. The crew cabin's four hull triangles are painted black, and like the lab section, it comes with two "ALPHA MOONBASE" emblems.
