Inspired by Space 1999, a Miniature Volkswagen Space Transporter

Alvis Pi, a Space 1999 fan, created this model, the Volkswagen Space Transporter, mixing an Eagle with a Volkswagen van, the end result is fantastic.

It was built from a VW Hasegawa kit, plastic pipes, ladders, handrails and plastic sheet, and the engines are from a 1/144 Revell Saturn V kit. The crew is a 1/24 scale, has two pods, one for passenger transport and a Hydro pod that carries a piece of a satellite and a rare plant. Very good job.

Space: 1999 is a science-fiction television programme that ran for two series from 1975 to 1977. In the opening episode, set in the year 1999, nuclear waste stored on the Moon’s far side explodes, knocking the Moon out of orbit and sending it, as well as the 311 inhabitants of Moonbase Alpha, hurtling uncontrollably into space.
