    Oct 15, 2008, 8:10 PM - 44" Studio scale 1/24th scale Transporter #1

    Hello all,

    I've finally started my studio scale Transporter. So far, I've only cleaned up and assembled the top and bottom halves of the Command Module. I'll post more later:

    Beautiful mate!. Always love seeing these big eagle buildups. Is this a total scratch with your own molds from your own patterns or something else?. Either way I look forward to your progress dude!. Pics lots of pics please, please.

    Hey Stu,

    I had the masters commissioned and molded these myself. Thank you for the compliment. I'll post more photos.

    This thread is just for the builtup, but since you ask:

    The CM will be selling for:

    CM top/bottom/rear - $100
    with inner wall - $110
    with resin disks - $105
    whole set - $115

    Hopefully this won't be moved to the Junkyard section.

    Thanks,

    Robert

    Thanks 79Daytona. I'm making sections to form the completed model. The first part to be released is the Command Module.

    Looks awesome! I don't know how much work you're up for but a junkyard thread might not be a bad idea

    Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing!

    Looks spectacular. I look forward to your progress. I've always hesitated at building the big 44" as I've never been able to get the command module right. Nice to hear you are thinking a complete transporter. I'd be in for one.
    Cheers, Kevin

    I'll be starting a Junkyard thread and will be taking orders on Monday. I won't take payments until the package is ready to ship.

    Thanks,

    Is this CM part of a larger kit? AB models used to have a limited 44" kit and a 24" inch kit. I used a lot of those photos from there reference to start my own 24" scratchbuild of the entire Eagle. Recently unpacked it after my move to start back into it. Will post into a new thread when I get the chance. Maybe we can compare notes.

    I would love to see a thread of the AB 44". Those are pretty rare. Yes, this will be part of a larger series of model parts. Eventually the other resin parts will be released.
