I've just pre-ordered the Space 1999 season 2 soundtrack from Fanderson which put me in mind of the excellent Alpha 2014 Space 1999 convention which took place in Peterborough over the 12th to the 14th of September, 2014.
I had a great time, and met loads of fellow 1999 fans including those talented folk who make up the All Sections Alpha modellers, who spend a lot of their time building full scale replicas of sets and models from Space 1999
Here's a photo of the lads in the display room.
This was one of the two original 44" Eagles on display.
