Space: 1999 Eagle 1 Colors

Post by TD1701 » Tue Jul 18, 2017 4:51 pm

Hi Everyone,

Do any of you know what is the correct base color, and that of the grey patches on the Space: 19999 Eagle 1 Transporter? I have mine in the prime coat stage and wanted to know what colors to buy when I am ready to paint.

Thanks,

Tom

I don't believe there is a definitive list of what colours they used on the filming models other than the base coat which is Ford Diamond White, if I am not mistaken. From what I can tell, they used common weathering techniques by masking and spraying panels lightly to achieve a plated metal look or some could say a patchwork. Most greys are slightly off the base coat so you may have to test paint a sheet of plastic and mix different ratios of paint in order to get the same look of the studio model. www.eagletransporter.com would be the place to go to get more information on this and to see some examples of the replicas of the SS models that members have built.

Thank you for the link TazMan!!! :) It was fun to snoop around and read the posts. I have various shades of grey in my stash so I can just play around with them until I find something I like. Now that I know for sure white will be my base, I can go from there.

Tom
