My latest acquisition arrived today - the new 22" Eagle Transporter kit from MPC.
I reckon at 22" it's a good size for the model, about as big as I'd want so it doesn't look too imposing on display. Although the studio did use a 22" prop, this model is based on the more detailed ' hero' 44" Eagle from the TV series, (I've seen plenty of fantastic 44" Eagles at conventions which look great in the display room , but could look a bit over the top in my living room)
There's plenty of info about the kit, printed all over the box, including painting and decal instructions.
The parts look really detailed. The folk behind the kit have really done their homework. Even the landing legs are spring-loaded for that added authenticity.
The decals allow for different versions of Eagle, depending on how they appeared throughout the two seasons.
Finally the detailed instructions, with a potted history of the studio models.
It's a project I want to start sooner rather than later, however the only thing holding me back is the Deluxe Accessory Set. which hasn't arrived yet.
