The Eagles have Landed 3 - Round 2 Models 22" Eagle Transporter

And here we go with the big kit and this is a very full box. There have been a number of 22" resin versions of the Eagle Transporter released over the years (Warp Models comes to mind) but this one promises to be the most accurate kit commercially available. With the dimensions taken from the first "Hero" 44" model used for filming the TV show this one should pretty much have it all. I really can't wait to get started on it. I'm already contemplating getting a second one.

There are two upgrade kits out there for this one right now. The first one replaces the engine bells and the oleo supports with aluminum versions. This costs almost as much as the kit itself. There is a second kit that replaces all the small metal thrusters with turned aluminum as well, this one is much more reasonable. However, I have decided to forgo the upgrade kits. Maybe the second time around.

I'm hoping that there might be some resin add on kits to convert this to a couple of the other versions.

As you can see from the pictures this is a real box full of parts!

The decal sheet is sealed and I'm going to leave it that way till I'm ready to start on this one.

Some important Eagle Stats.
