Really nice design work. Love your modifications instead of the classic greeblies.

Coming from yaself Bill, a real compliment sah! I just decided to go with the ignition plates as a quick and easy way to cover the bolt heads but it works. I based the design on real world examples of course but while pushing the polygons about, just decided to give it a swirl shape if that's the right term, because why not

Great work on the inserts, and I like the pattern of the engine bell grills.

Default Re: Space 1999 44" Eagle Transporter

Thanks T, they do add something do they not

Well a few bits more sorted!
Passenger pod ends all cleaned up and looking none too shabby methinks.





The inevitable and muchly required primer coat.





Main paint pretty much the same paneling deal as the rescure pod. Decals, weathering, pencil lining and the well used pod look done.














Door lighting look see.





Command module interior sorted out and lighting fitted.





Shapeways pilots with my own clear tinted visors and DIY decals. The suits appear very red in the pics, that's just my camera that doesn't like red colours or lights.





3D printed seats done and all in place.





All buttoned up, painted, decaled, weathered and rear frame attached. Calling this bit done.











Lighting check of course.







The always popular head on shot.






Cruciform frame painted, weathered, decaled. Small tanks likewise then fitted and piping installed.





Large tanks dealt with and engine bells fitted.








The engine bells got a little bit of a polish up and a light airbrush of Alclad pale burned metal on the bottom edge.





Insides had the baffle thingies fitted and the lot dirtied up.





Lighting check.





Just the side pods to sort and then bring all the bits together.
More later!

That painting is outstanding! Really like the pilots and that you made their face shields. They look really good in there.

Thanks T. Just a result of thier printing process that the visors weren't clear and I almost instantly had the 'That will not do' thought and got stuck in. This will be the last brass frame 44" Eagle i'll ever do so may as well go as all out as possible.

Default Re: Space 1999 44" Eagle Transporter

Right, it's a done thing now so final deatils time.
In short order then...

Side pods all sanded, plating and details both studio accurate and not slapped on, then primer time!









Multi panel grey and white paint done, loads of DIY waterslide decals placed.
Pencil panel lining a bit of black paint and weathering done.









Laminated carbon fiber crossbeam with some epoxy glue got hammered in to one of the side pods.



Cage frame detail parts got brought out of hiding, fited then the pod and beam shoved through and the opposite side pod in place.



Back end treated likewise.



Engine section wired up and fitted in place.



Wiring fed through the tubes along the spine to the front end.





Underside VTOL engine bells sorted out.





Door facia fitted on the rear.



Command module wired up and fitted.





Push switch installed in the top greeblie infested area, battery holder also sorted.





Had top do a bit of rework on the supplied landing gear as it just went all the way to the bottom stops. The springs were just not strong enough to hold it up.



Drilled and tapped a hole, ran in a 30mm long bolt with some epoxy and that was the bottom stop set up as required.





Gear legs all painted and weatherd where required and done.





Now standing on her own four legs.



RCS thruster quads assembled and in place, battery cover likewise.





For the main event, that's pretty much that!



Had to have an all pods photo call as one does.
Passenger pod



Rescue pod



Nuclear waste pod



Well it's been a long and trying build at times but the finished article is worth it, that's the lot untill I can get a gallery shoot done proper...or as proper as I can do.
All the best folks and folkettes!

Fantastic pod! Love the springy legs. Looks pretty delicate without the pods though.
