From time to time, there is something that is offered that nobody else has. Recently came across this custom command center for Space 1999 on eBay. A custom made Command Desk & Communications Post from Gerry Anderson’s Space: 1999. These are painstakingly referenced from screen captures – the desk is a replica of the one of several props used in Command Center in Year 2. Scaled to the Palitoy (Mego) & CTVT Action Figure range, this lot consists of the desk & chair and measures approx, 14cm long x 7cm wide x 12cm tall. Each desk had unique detailing and this particular prop was often (although not always) in the foreground of Command Center.
Also included is a replica Communications Post as seen throughout Moonbase Alpha. This particular example id modeled after the unit seen in Commander Koenig’s Office in Year One. Model measures approx, 7cm x 7cm wide x 24cm tall.
These are reference “prototypes” and are constructed from card, fiber board & detailed with custom created/printed graphics.
Originally created by me for a celebration of Space: 1999’s 30th birthday event at Pinewood Studios, these models were used as references for one of several center pieces used at the celebration dinner.
