It’s a New Year… 2013, so can somebody tell me why we are not all bouncing around in zero gravity and kicking up Moon dust? Why not? why? oh why… <sigh>
When I was a kid in the mid-70′s Man had actually, albeit recently, ventured to other Worlds. Neil Armstrong was still a household name and continued to be one of the most popular elusive figures of our generation, right until his untimely demise in 2012.
We all wanted to be Neil Armstrong. I couldn’t wait for the next 25 years to fly by and get my hands on a flight to the Moon. Space was going to be very much available to the masses in 1999, at least that’s what Gerry Anderson led us to believe. His imagination was clearly much greater than NASA’s budget.
Anyway, rambling aside, and a tenuous link to the above nonsense, I loved Space 1999; I had all the toys and models as a kid. Sadly, like most kids, I thoroughly enjoyed destroying them! So I recently had a passion to own an Eagle again, and here she is. Yes, this entire little diatribe was simply to show off this beautiful little Dinky toy.
But it is so pretty… and damn worth it!
