[MPC / Round 2 Space: 1999 Eagle] 22-Inch 1:48 Cargo Pod Edition
« on: December 08, 2016, 02:54:23 pm »
Hi, Everyone!

Round 2 just announced their next Space: 1999 kit on their blog site...a 1:48 22-inch Eagle with Cargo Pod: http://www.collectormodel.com/space1999/3417-mpc-space1999-models-announcing-22-cargo-pod-eagle/

This will be the flatbed "cargo" pod with a couple of options.  It will come with a full winch assembly along with the magnetic hoist.  Magnets will be included.  The kit will also come with four nuclear waste canisters.  The builder can rig one up to work with the magnetic hoist or use all four to fill the flatbed.

This will be a full kit.  Round 2 currently has no plans to offer the cargo pod parts as a separate accessory kit.  They will be tooling the parts soon, and hope to show off a build-up at WonderFest in May 2017.

Here are the preliminary pics:



Stay tuned...

Will definitely need to get this or at least the original "passenger pod" version in 2017.

Got no idea where I would display either though! :o

Hi, Everyone!

Round 2 updated their blog site yesterday to include a lengthy and very detailed post written by James Small of Small Art Works which goes into how he helped Round 2 with the creation of the artwork that will be included with their upcoming MPC / Round 2 1:48 22" Space: 1999 Eagle Transporter with Cargo Pod (kit number MPC838).

The article is packed with pictures and offers much information of James' professional process.  Check it out here: http://www.collectormodel.com/round2-models/3593-space-1999-model-kits-mpc-eagle-with-cargo-pod-packaging-part-2/.

For those interested in miniature photography, the article also provides a link to another article James wrote and shares on his own website that has lots of helpful tips.  You can read that one here: http://www.smallartworks.ca/CNSM/Model%20Photography/PhotoHints.html.

Both are highly-recommended reads!

Stay tuned for more...
