"Unique kit – Infamous history – 1970’s kitsch – And some very cool features"
wwwilliam (Salt Lake City, UT)
This kit is quite different from the other Space: 1999 models that have returned recently thanks to Round2/MPC. First off, the moon car depicted by the kit never appeared on the TV show, nor did the included “Alien” figure character. Back in the 70’s, the model was a quick-and-dirty way to capitalize on the popular Space: 1999 TV show. As if this interesting tangent of modeling history isn’t enough to entice the modeler to acquire this infamous kit, it actually builds into a pretty cool model. Originally created by George (TV Batmobile) Barris as the 6-wheeled “Moonscope,” MPC considerably modified the design. It somewhat resembles kammback-styled cars popular in the 1970’s such as the AMC Gremlin and Ford Pinto. While considered at least semi-cool back then, their looks are not especially appealing today and the model represents 1970s kitsch in its finest form. Dubious aesthetics aside, the model depicts a surprisingly realistic design for a custom vehicle with simulated, welded square-section frame and clamshell body. Drive components include a simulated electric motor and batteries. Such items in the 21st Century are cutting edge. Additional chrome-plated parts include depictions of a coil-over-shock suspension with extra-wide low-profile tires, more engineering that was ahead of its time thanks to George Barris’ insight. Fit of the parts isn’t perfect and a little work is needed with parts cleanup. It’s certainly unique, and not particularly hard to build. There was never a ton of Space: 1999 model kits offered, and no collection will be complete without this unusual kit. Round2 went out on a limb re-releasing The Alien, but this modeler is glad they did.
