Eagle Studio Scale Model (Rogue Studios)

US, 2015-2016, $8500 + shipping

Rogue Studios is a model making company run by Lee Malone, from Florida, USA. In 2015 he agreed a license with ITV (owners of Space: 1999) and Anderson Entertainment (run by Gerry Anderson's son, Jamie Anderson) to produce a replica 44 inch Eagle.

The model is an accurate replica of the first 44 inch filming miniature, with brass framework and aluminium engine bells. It is a completed, fully painted display model (not a kit). The cockpit is removable. Each model is hand made, taking 12 weeks to build. It is limited to 100 models.

The model includes a plaque with the model number and signature of Space: 1999 SFX director Brian Johnson, set on a miniature landing pad base.

The steep price reflects that this is a professional quality replica, not a mass-produced item (it is a lot cheaper than a one-off commission with a modeller of similar quality).

The prototype models were also for sale as "artist proof editions", with signatures from both Brian Johnson and actor Nick Tate, for $10,000.

A companion model of the Hawk was in development for 2016, but by the end of 2016 the ITV license ended.
