"Space 1999-Eagle 1"
The 1/72 scale was the size I desired and received , nicely priced and not a lot of small parts to loose. All parts fit properly and painted with no problem. I can say I am very pleased with this model and it made a fine addition to my collection. My main drawback to this kit is it went together so good without any problems that I finished it faster than expected and had to find something else as I really enjoyed this kit. Looking forward to my next kit. Thank you.

"Quick and fun build"
xyzeet (Monrovia, IN)
As previously reviewed, this kit is a lot less intimidating than it appears. Most parts fit together well, though some slight emery board sanding was required once or twice to get a snugger fit. As also previously mentioned, avoid painting on stripes, and the tanks are NOT red, so don't do it! I think people are remembering the old 70's toy which had red tanks. I kept the main body stock white, not bothering to paint the whole ship at all. Silver the engine cones, then flat black the inside exhaust area. I felt no need to do any kind of interior. The larger scale fancier Eagles are best for this anyway. Decals are great and such an improvement. Take your time on these. Because this is a fairly quick build, you might spend some time on weathering if desired. Just remember that on white, a little goes a long way! Have fun!

"Excellent kit for customizing"
My nephew wanted to build a scratch built model of a Mech for some game called Battle Tech. So he showed me pictures of what he wanted. This kit was perfect for the task. Detail was crisp with few flash issues and instructions were very clear, mainly on the tube framing but easy to clean. Fit for the sections I used were spot on. This project was a 2 year build. We added a working light board built from an electronics kit. We also kit bashed a few 1/35th scale weapons packs. I'll review those kits later. We painted it black ,white and 3 shades of gray urban camo pattern. I would Highly recommend this Item to all level builders.

"A great kit waiting to be fully detailed..."
Daithi (Maryland)
Built right out of the box and painted per instructions you will have a very nice display... Take some time and putty the very few small gaps and do a little extra detail painting and add some washes and you will have a great display model... Go all out and open the tube framing, add extra details to the pods, open the windows light the interior, add some duct work to the rear engine area - let your imagination go wild and you will have a awesome display model... This is a kit for models of all ages and shill levels... Highly recommended...


Due to small parts that could cause a choking hazard please kee away from children 3 years of age and younger.
