When I saw a few of the old episodes, I remembered that I have a kit of the Eagle somewhere.

A quite small and simply Imai kit, but better than nothing :)




The kit looks really much "plastic like", but I hope it will be better when painted

Cool. 1/110 scale eh ? Kind of odd but in space terms I guess it would be easy enough to find bits to add to it or dios that could be passed as scale.

This kit is really more a toy. You should add soem wheels to the cargo container, so that you can "play" with it on the floor.
Ok, I did not add the wheels.....
The landing gear is "too short", it would not hit the ground when the wheels are installed, so I guess I have to modify them so that they look more realistic.
But I wanted to have one of those Eagels, and it was cheap .... :) :) :)

Sure, it might come out of the box like a toy, but once she's all done and weathered up or in a dio I bet that will change !

Looks a bit better now, well mainly white as the one in the TV series:



Still have to see how to modify the landing gear to make it look "right".

As pure whire is a little bit boring, the Eagle is not "pimed" a little bit



The biggest issue with this kit - it has no real landing gear, but whhels to "play" with it. So right now, I make a new landing gear, using parts of a 1/288 scele An-26

Finally its done, the Eagle has landed.... ahm, the Eagle is completed  ;D







This IMAI model (1:100 scale) was pretty basic and more a toy than a detailed kit. Which I did not know when i got this one on ebay. The cargo container should get 4 wheels so that you could "play" with the build eably. Because of the wheels, the landing gear was too short, not touching the ground at all. Therefore I had to build a new one from scratch, using parts of two An-26 kits.

MY GF had a model kit for me as a Christmas Present. Unusual compared to the stuff I normally build, its a "Metal Earh", laser-cut metal model.
So you have to cut things out, bend them and put them together without glueing anything. So quite different compared to a plastic model, especially to get thinks bend the right way.

If you make an error, there is a god chance that parts will be destroyed, so its a bit tricky.

In the end, the result is not perfect, but I had to learn how to work with this material. There is another kit of this kind waiting (Eagle Moon Lander) which should be more difficult htan this one.

The kit:



The ready build model:

That looks really good! Makes me want to try one.
I've seen quite a few of these around. Their selection keeps getting bigger so they must be selling.
There's someone in my head, but it's not me!

I'd missed the Eagle, really nice job on it, builds up quite nicely.

I do like the Spirit/Opportunity rover.  I was given an R2-D2 kit a little while ago and I agree with your comments, it's a little tricky and my completed kit wasn't perfect but it's quite a nice model when finished.  It's made me want to try some of the Aircraft in Minature Historic Wings kits that are mostly etch, although I've resisted because they are expensive.
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

I was given the Metal Earth P-51D as a pressie a while ago, and when I took the frets out of the packet I gave a shudder and slid it back in again!  :o

All those tiny tabs and things! Give me styrene and glue any time..........
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

When I saw this kit, I liked it direckty and had to buy it: Apollo 27.

Ok, I have no idea why they have choosen this name as it has nothing to do wit hte "real" Apollo. Anyway, this is the kit to build:




As there are not so many part in it - and they fit easiely together withut glueing them, a little test how thing match together:



No I only have to see if I can build this one in Kerbal Space Program as well.... :)
