Repair at Perimeter Relay 8 by Rob-Caswell Repair at Perimeter Relay 8 by Rob-Caswell
I'm still having "Anderson on the Brain", pondering the legacy the man left behind. So here we have a lil' Space:1999 vignette with an Eagle bringing a crew out to repair a communications relay near Alpha.

Eagle by Grayworf-Starkiller. Buggy by...? Dystopia antenna by either Moebius, Ajax, or both? Rock by Aery Soul, lunar surface by FirstBastion (at DAZ). M4 space suit by Simon3D and recolored in Alpha's color scheme. DAZ Studio....

Hey Rob,

WOW! I'm a Space 1999 addict and really love this.

I am producing products for sale at a Space 1999 convention in Peterborough UK this September. A lot of the starts of the show will be there as well as Jaimie Anderson. 

All profits will go to the Jerry Anderson Fund. I was wondering if you or any other artists you know who create Space 1999 artwork would be willing to donate some artwork or Vectors for printing on mugs, caps, t-shirts, chromalux panels etc. All artists will be credited for their work and contribution.  I would like to be able to produce some large panels for the auction too. I know it is lot to ask... If you could mention this to anyone else who may be interested in helping I would be really grateful. I already have a chap called Marco who has donated a Hand Laser graphic. Vectors are really useful of course too. 

Regards DJ

I'll ask around and see if anyone I know is interested. Good luck with the venture... and I'm glad you like my work! :)

Wow, nostalgia. I remember the french dubbing being hilariously poor for anyone but the main characters.

But that's not giving the show proper recognition, right ? I also remember quite a lot of philosophical insight behind it, at least during the first season. It was innovative. And pairing Landau with Morse was a genius move. The two of them could've run the show by themselves.

The first season was definitely the stronger. Losing Morse in season 2 really lost something vital.

Ah........ memories!  A fun little sci-fi show.  Like all of them, the plot was preposterous but the Eagles were superb from an engineering point of view! :thumbsup:

Agreed. It's a design that still feels attractive and possible.

Always had a thing for this design... it made SENSE in the real world... Would love to see more images of this thing making use of it's different modular configurations - skeleton without the central cargo pod, skeleton removed with the cockpit and rear engines only, or cockpit as a life-buoy... Different cargo pods too.

Even makes sense from a maintenance point of view because of the interchangeable modules. Why are we trying to build the CEV and such? Launch one of these babies and you've got the whole mission in one convenient package. You could even use HLV's to launch the modules into orbit piece by piece, and simply dock them together in orbit and ... zoom... to the moon...

I agree, it's a great design and cool to look at even by current standards. But as an atmospheric vehicle.... well that's where the plausibility breaks down...
