What a dreadful T.V. series ('Space 1999') but what incredible artwork!

Yeah, 1999 was all kinds of silly, but as a lunar workhorse the Eagle is a pretty timeless design

As an atmospheric lander? Well... we're back to silly.

Just read the posts on this-i knew Anderson had passed-did'nt know McCall had.Ditto on  S'Satyrs comments about their future vision's.But then-it would appear you're doing a great job at carrying that torch.
And-Harry Haryhausen of stop-motion models fame recently passed.I'd love to see some of their sketch books published.

I love McCall's art! He did a lot of conceptual artwork for both "Star Trek: The Motion Picture" and Disney's "The Black Hole", among others, although the Disney movie went with a very different look. It is much to humanity's detriment that more people don't share his (and our) outlook on space and the future.

McCall's vision was always so optimistic - almost like visual space poetry. Few aerospace artists put the "art" into their work like he did.
