Space Station from "Battle of the Planets" (1978)
About the Design
Designed for the Japanese animated series "Battle of the Planets" (originally titled "Gatchaman" and later "G-Force") this odd, asymmetrical space station was equipped with numerous hangar bays from which it launched a variety of bird-shaped fighter craft.
About the Kit
Was this design actually featured on "Battle of the Planets/Gatchaman"? We raise this question because we've also seen this same model packaged as an undersea laboratory, a function for which it seems far more appropriate. (Notice the legs under each module?)
In any case, this model was built from an original issue.
