Current State of the Eagle (Space: 1999)
Just for those who have been wondering what's happening to my large scale Eagle model (Space:1999). Here's an update: I was sort of bored to work on the same model all the time, so I started some smaller in-between projects, I'm currently finishing off: a yellow version of the Bison vehicle, a funny peace van, a Buck Rogers starfighter, a Jedi cruiser and a republic gunship. I also needed some creative space to have another look at the Eagle model and improve on what I've done so far. Here are some pictures of the current state. It's far from finished and there are still some support structures in place. Enjoy! And please have a look at my other MOCs!
About this creation

Here's an overall look of the main body with pod. The front cage section is pretty much finished as well, but as it looks the same as the rear section, I didn't bother to take another picture.



A more detailed picture of the rear of the Eagle with the Engine section.



More details of the engines and main thrusters...



... and more...



and even more!



This is the prototype of the cockpit module. I think, the shape looks pretty perfect from this perspective. Black wedge stickers will be added to the cockpit module in front of the windows.



Another shot of the cockpit module...



and another one.

We lost Mr. Anderson yesterday. This MOC was always a fine and fitting tribute to Anderson's work, but...well...it just feels a little more important now. Thank you for keeping this work posted. I hope there might be an update to celebrate a life that brought so much wonder and excitement to so many people. RIP Gerry Anderson 14 April 1929 – 26 December 2012

Looks very promissing! Great build so far. Your MOC contains a lot technical challenges, very impressive. I know it can be difficult to stay focused at one model, especially when it takes a lot of time to complete it. But great you picked it up again.

Hi Melody, sorry about my late reply: This was my biggest problem too, especially because I needed some space inside the pods for the suspension of the "legs". I uses brackets (44728)... it's difficult to explain in words, but I used wedge plates (30503) underneath the corner parts. The studless sides facing each other, the studs looking up and down. Then I used the brackets (short sides on plates) to fix the plates in these positions, by connection the "long sides" of the brackets (one bracket points upwards, the other downwards). I don't know, if this makes any sense... but I guess if you try it yourself, you'll see, what I'm getting at... hopefully. Cheers, R.

Okay I finally found the pieces, they are 30079,30080, and 57587 or 60288. Now my question is how are the 30079's mounted upside down?

What brick is used at the corners of the outboard pods. I have searched for more than 3 hours on bricklink and peeron without success. I have used the search terms 3x3, slope, 33, 45, wedge, corner all to no success. Also what part is the large hemisphere at the front of the engine nozzles? Havent searched as long but i did use these terms 7x7 , hemisphere, curve. Please help.

Quoting Jorge C. Ron, I gotta ask...are those functioning moveable sprung legs? Thx!
Yes, they are: They are spring-loaded and move in when you set down the model, although just a bit (about 1 to 1.5 inches).

This is, by far, the most complex Lego Eagle I’ve seen so far! I just had to share your amazing work with some other “Eagle nuts”: http://www.eagletransporter.com/forum/showthread.php?p=104322#post104322 Can't wait to see the final result! Jorge

Quoting Gary Davis That's looking superb. You will change it to a white framework of course?
Yes, I would if I could. But one of the parts needed is very rare in white. Therefore I would have had to buy it in like 20 different Bricklink shops at enormous prices. Therefore I settled for the gray framework. But it can always be changed in the future, when the part in question becomes available in larger quantities.
