+1! How I loved watching Space 1999 back in the day.  :smitten:

Can't wait to see how yours turns out.  I made this very same model when I was a kid back in the late '70's.  A few years later my brother and I set it, and a few other of our models, on fire.  I don't recommend doing this as plastic tends to outgas ferociously. 
Forgive me my old friend.  But I must use all my experience...to get home.

Nice! I remember watching Space: 1999 on CBC Saturday afternoons when I lived in Canada. Building Eagles with my Lego too.

Space 1999 was probably the very first show I ever watched.

Not even joking but that too, on Saturday mornings. And Dance Fever, Saturday afternoon. I was 4, at the oldest.

According to Wikipedia he played one of Khan's henchmen. That alone makes him likeable.  O0

The first show I remember watching was either the Banana Splits or Wacky Races/Stop that pigeon. Frakk me, I'm old.

Excellent choice of model!

I used to have the Moonbase Alpha diorama years ago, but it got damaged and I eventually tossed it:
