    Playset Space 1999 Control Center playset

    I started on a Space 1999 playset over two years ago but never finished it. I recently won a Commander Koenig figure on ebay and it renewed my interest in finishing the playset. Itís built to fit in Scottís Dida sets, but unfortunately, heís sold out of them. I could kick myself for not ordering them earlier. I ended up building my own setup with matboard, but Iím really hoping Scott gets more displaysets in because I want to set this set up in one (hint, hint).

    The set has a pull-up screen on the inside and a rising Eagle ship on the outside. The chairs are made out of white matboard. The computer desk is from a Mego Enterprise playset, but I plan on making my own to be more screen accurate. The figures are a mix of Palitoy, CTVT and custom figures. I also made a moveable communications post.





    I made the design of the outside of the set using a 3D program and then reworked it in PhotoShop. The outside features a landing pad. I have a Dinky Eagle on it, but a Mattel Eagle would look great on it.





    One thing I was pleased about after I built this was that fact that it folds up to about the size of a thin book. I donít have a ton of display space, so that was a bonus.

    VERY Nice.... I was going to make these graphics as well for my Alphans, but yours turned out MUCH better.. Love the 3-D work.

    Yeah.., getting a John Koenig does become pretty inspiring..

    Scott, I may have to invest in making one of these if you have any extra tri-box displays.

    I'm enjoying my brand-new Blu-Ray player now and just bought the Space:1999 boxset. It's seriously awesome.

    Here's a better shot of the PhotoShop graphics and also some screen pics. I used for references.

    I'm not a 1999 fan, but that's a really nice playset. Great job!
