US, MPC984, January 2023 $29.99

Round 2 have produced many Space: 1999 kits. At 3.25 inches / 8.2 cm long, this is a reworked version of the larger buggy that featured in the Nuclear Waste Disposal Area 2 diorama set (MPC 860/06, 2017). It includes additional engine details, and expanded decals, and can also be made as a original Amphicat. See original prop amphicat.

There is no mention of the well-known use in Banana Splits (1968-1970), which would have complicated licensing.

Decals. Most of the markings are based on the Space Warp and later version (with a large "5"). The dashboard (#29) is based on the Space City version, rather than the one seen in Space Warp. In the series, the buggy had no dashboard and less markings in most year 1 episodes.


The moonbuggy and the 2017 Nuclear Waste Disposal Area 2 diorama set, and the 2022 Hawk, which is a similar size box.

Kits parts are in yellow styrene, with some transparent parts (handlamps).
