With this years HaMeX Smallspace event celebrating my favourite spacecraft - the Space 1999 Eagle - even getting lost coming off the motorway wasn't going to stop me visiting.
A reorganization of the canvas covered areas freed up a little more space than in previous years. This was handy as one of the non-1999 star exhibits was a freshly restored Shado jeep.
Based on a Mini chassis, the work carried out on this vehicle is staggering. Even the windscreen has been replaced, and it's not a standard item Autoglass will keep in stock!
Inside of course we were excited to see a pair of original 44 inch Eagles alongside special effects guru Brian Johnson, their designer.
Not only this, a whole lot of 1999 props were on show. Apparently these belong to a Belgian collector who has previously been happy for them to reside in the UK and been shown, but post-Brexit, wants them back in case he might struggle to export them in the future!
K9 was present, and in his cafe there was the usual array of delicious food. The sausage bap was lovely and chocolate cake superb. Not bad for a metal dog who cooks everything with a laser in his nose!
