While searching for references to the Space 1999 Eagle Launching Pad. I discovered an interesting site which shows models from the TV show and also some additional information about how they were made. What came up was this Glider, used to penetrate atmospheres where an Eagle cannot go. http://www.space1999.net/catacombs/main/models/glider/w2mglider.html Which was based on this glider, Nasa's HyperIII Glider in 1963. http://www1.dfrc.nasa.gov/Gallery/Photo/HyperIII/index.html I think these would translate well into paper. Projects to please both Sci-Fi and Real Space fans alike.
