Classic MPC Eagle is back - New decals are a definite improvement - Satisfying build
By wwwilliam January 20, 2015
The Eagle Transporter from Space: 1999 was created in the early 1970’s, but the design has aged well and still looks good today. MPC released the kit originally in 1975, and again in 1999. Round2/MPC has brought it back and provided some incentives to buy, even for those who may already have some of the old kits. This model probably looks a lot more complex to build than it really is. Molded in white plastic this time around, a decent model can be had if the builder simply glues it together, adding appropriate painted details such as the silver engine nozzles. A new decal sheet provides a couple easy options for the windows and includes many other markings and details that were not present in other releases. Modelers who desire a more realistic model are easily rewarded since the assembly is very modular, due to the design of the ship and the kit. Parts fit isn’t too bad. A pass of filler putty for gaps in the bottom of the travel pod might be in order. It is a fairly simple matter to putty, sand, prime, and paint the ship in the various subassemblies before final construction and this is probably a good kit for modelers wishing to advance those skills. Accuracy isn’t a hundred percent with a few off-angles here and there, but the advanced modeler can make corrections such as opening up the latticework in the service module corridors and scratch-building the innards. This concession that simplified engineering of the kit in the first place seems to be the biggest criticism leveled by avid Space: 1999 modeler/aficionados. The new box is a close copy of the 1975 version. An interesting inaccuracy there is depiction of the red fuel tanks, which were never seen on the Eagles in the show. Die-hard fans know that the red stripes on the passenger module represent the Rescue variant. Leaving off the stripes simplifies painting and is accurate for the plainer-looking passenger Eagle. There is plenty of modeling fun to be had here. This kit will not disappoint.

Quick and fun build
By xyzeet December 4, 2015
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!

Quick and fun to build
By dbrynelsen59 January 31, 2016
Round 2 has once again brought back the MPC Space:1999 Eagle transport first issued way back in the seventies in conjunction with the show. Like the original issue the kit goes together quickly and easily with a minimum of fuss, save for a couple areas that may require some filler putty. The decals are improved with the correct Alpha Moonbase logos and other incidental markings. For painting I'd ignore the boxart especially the red fuel tanks on the engines, and the stripes on the passenger pod and instead find good reference photos of the actual SFX models on the internet.
