BRINGING THE GALAXY HOME IN A BOX
22" Booster build from Space:1999
Here is the some detailed photos of the build up. If I get time I will update with more information, but for now here is the rough dimension sheets to go by (you can download these at end of this article).
More photos showing the build itself. Mostly Plastruct parts and similar kits as to what was used for the 44" Andy H./Chris T. version just scaled down 1/2 size of course.
The Eboat plate on the bottom (in fact all Eboat parts on here) and top left side panel were scratchbuilt with sheet styrene. I used a 1/48 Tamiya Mustang kit for the radiator part and upper pipe work that connects the two elliptical tanks together on top.
Plastruct "cement" tube was used construct the outer boxes with sheet styrene details. Add in a M60A1, M18 Semovente and some chopped up lunar lander engine pipe for bottom rear underside. The upper tanks have the (green in the unpainted pics) side detail made from Airifx Bristol Bloodhound missles.
Fujimi Stug IIID and Revell Nato Helikopter NH90. Airfix B-29 landing gear trimmed and Airfix Buffalo and Tamiya 8rad all give details. A big thanks to Mike Reader for the aluminium bells!
But feel free to detail as you like, the original screen used does not survive as far as I know and though based on photos from the show, I suspect the right side was never finished.
This is a pdf file of my info from my build. I did all the blueprinting on Doublecad though at the moment I cannot get my original files to load. So they are here at least as a JPG in the PDF so you have dimensions to work from!
