Jim Lewis has entered his Eagle 1B Transporter in the 2018 MOTY Online Contest.

This is a build-up of Fast Forward Models’ excellent Eagle 1B Transporter, with Accessory Kit. The only thing added to the basic kit are two pieces of windscreen “glass” panels and a custom paint job/markings done with Tamiya Acrylics and Alclad II Chrome Engine Bells. I finished my miniature as a set in 2012 back on Earth in the S:1999 Universe, during the events chronicled in the graphic novel “Shock and Awe” – on the eve of a mission to wrestle Europa from Jupiter and gravity tractor the moon into a high orbit around Earth to stabilize its spin and seasons.

This is the first Space:1999 Universe subject I’ve ever done.

I have been building models since I was about 8 years old. As many of us did, I picked up the hobby from my father. Without him, I would probably have never known this great hobby. I like to build everything from Military Models to Starships. Right now my passion is to build and light science fiction models.
