Day #207

Day #207Title: The Eagle Has Landed
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: This week’s 366 theme is Toys & Games, so I dug out one of my childhood models for this shot. For those of you not accustomed to watching bad 70’s Science Fiction, this is the Dinky Toys Eagle Freighter #360 White Body/Red Thrusters (2nd release) (I’m not that much of a geek, just found the spec on the web!) from Space 1999, which I used to watch avidly as a kid. It still has all 4 nuclear waste pods and a working winch. The paintwork is in pretty good nick, and it hasn’t lost any of the plastic thrusters. I should really have taken a photo of this for Day #203 as that was the 39th anniversary of the Moon landing. Better late than never!
