Space 1999 Eagle Restoration

Eagle One: A Complete Restoration
Step-by-step explanation of the cleaning, fixing and restoration of an original Eagle model from the Space 1999 series. The models really took a beating during filming. They were cracked from impacts, charred from pyrotechnics, full of concrete dust, and repainted multiple times to hide scars.

IMHO, the Eagle was the real star of the show. It was like a super-versatile piece of space-aged construction equipment. (It should have been painted orange, actually.) All the parts were modular, and could be interchanged. It was also made of titanium, long before titanium was cool.

I downloaded and watched a few episodes recently using WinMX. In hindsight, everything about that show sucked, except the Eagles.

    I love this ship. Is this a full size restoration?

    It's an actual model used in the series, it's about three feet (one meter) in length.

    Beautiful work. Where did you acquire it?

    Sorry I wasn't more clear, it was acquired by the person at the website mentioned above (not by me).
