This riveting saga of assembly and painting kicks off with a shoutout to the fans whose comments are surely the fuel behind this creative spaceship. After a quick nod to Wondercon, where geeks unite and cosplay is king, our host dives into the main event: the Space 1999 Comlock and Stun Gun kit from MPC / Round2. This isn’t just any model kit; oh no, it’s enhanced with Mike Reeder’s aluminum wizardry, elevating it from mere child’s play to a hobbyist’s treasure.
