I bought this kit last weekend inspired by all the SPACE 1999 Scoop's been posting lately.
It seems to be a reissue copywritten 2013. Was this ever something that appeared on the show?
Postscript from Woodsy:
Here's the original MPC kit The Moon Scope courtesy of Pinterest. It is sort of similar to the Space 1999 ALIEN.
and here's the real Moonscope!
Note the standard wheels on this one.
