Some serious Space: 1999 goodness at this amazing UK Museum. A must visit!!!
Chris Rogerson had a chance to visit the National Film & Sci-Fi Museum in Milton Keynes UK. The National Film & Sci-Fi Museum is dedicated to the preservation, restoration and exhibition of the art, skills and dedication that goes into delivering some of the world’s most successful films and tv shows. It has a series of dedicated displays of genuine and replica props and memorabilia from across all genres of Film & Sci-Fi.
The Moonbuggy was provided and detailed by James Winch. He did an amazing job sourcing and detailing the Amphicat.
The original shooting miniature of Moonbase Alpha is the highlight of the exhibit. Freshly restored by James Winch and team, the display is nothing less than stellar. Would probably take Brian Johnson back to his shooting production days to see Alpha in this condition once again in all of its glory.
James Winch and team did an absolute amazing job with the restoration of the original Moon Base Alpha shooting miniature set; he owned most of the Alpha buildings you see here, managed to create all of the launch pads and did a massive restoration/clean on the classic buildings to give it its look you see here. These photos are from James. Alpha has never looked better. And being surrounded by other Space: 1999 original uniforms, ships and props. The little Eagles displayed with it were donated by Lee Stringer and painted by Chris Potter. The launch pads were 3D printed by Rob Carson
Back to Chris Rogerson’s photos: some original, some amazing replicas, there is a lot to take in if you visit the museum. Loaners of these items are mostly by James Winch. The whole ensemble makes for a fantastic display you shouldn’t miss out on.
And don’t go just for the spectacular Space: 1999 display. If you love classic sci-fi there is a little of something here for everyone. The museum is dedicated to the preservation, restoration and exhibition of the art, skills and dedication that goes into delivering some of the world’s most successful films and tv shows. The museum features an extensive collection of props, costumes, art, photos, and footage from some of the biggest film and tv productions. Displays from Star Wars to Indiana Jones, James Bond to Ghostbusters, Harry Potter to Marvel, and over 100 films and shows we all love and have been brought up with, are on view in the museum.
An amazing display! The 44″ Eagle you see there was built by Chris Potter.
