This is the original MPC/Fundimensions model of "Moonbase Alpha" from the cult television series "Space:1999". Released in 1976, this model is a fairly decent representation of the moonbase seen on the show. Though somewhat simplified to appeal to younger modellers, the layout of the base is basically correct. However it has only three of the five landing pads seen on the original miniature.

Unfortunately both the 1976 and 1999 versions of the kit are saddled with a poorly thought out feature; the entire 'moon surface' base is molded in two flimsy vacuformed pieces which have to be trimmed of excess plastic and then glued together down the center. These two joined pieces support the rest of the kit. While the weight of the parts is not necessarily an issue, it does make the entire thing rather fragile if it has to be moved.

The one advantage to the original issue of the kit is that the parts for the base do fit in their intended spots. When the kit was reissued in '99 the vacuformed pieces were molded a fraction of an inch smaller than the originals. This makes it virtually impossible to make the pieces of the moonbase sit correctly on the surface. So besides being more desirable because it's vintage, this version is better because it can actually be assembled as intended.
