Space: 1999 model kits: A word from Brian Johnson

Thursday, November 9, 2017

Space:1999 effects supervisor and model designer Brian Johnson has always been very complimentary of our work on Space:1999 kits. In fact, we make a point to put a statement of endorsement from him on our kits whenever possible. Unfortunately, in the case of the Nuclear Waste Area 2 set, I waited until the last minute before sending a request for a statement from him.

I didn’t want to make his effort go to waste though… (wow, pun much?) So I’ll post his kind words here and show a few behind the scenes images of Brian and his crew at work on the scene from the show that inspired this set.

How refreshing to see additions to the kits containing my Eagle craft from Space 1999. For those keen modellers who like to enhance their dioramas MPC have now introduced from “Breakaway” the Nuclear Waste Disposal site with all the little accessories including Moonbuggies, bases, figures, Control cones etc.  A lot of time and effort by Round 2 and MPC has been put into offering a really great kit and I hope the sales will show the potential for this and other kits to follow……   BJ
