Actually, you could just model one quarter and use two symmetry modifier to complete the CM. The rest of the ship is more geometric and will be much easier than the CM.
And I do think your right about the eagle modeling skills.
Anyways Here a few more pictures of the pod coming together.

My next space 1999 "fighter will be more like non organic.
Anyways I've done a bit more work added a hatch door and I am starting on the piping system.
Here is what I got so far.
this image show the steps I've done to model the Eagle CM with Sketchup.

You can find more WIP image of Eagle structure here.
hope this could help you to improve the details of you work.
I was thinking about my knee-jerk reaction to your insets. They don't match my childhood memories of the show, so I automatically go "well, that's not right!" But the show was one particular point in time. What happened after the moon had been on its way for a few years, and new Eagles were built? Maybe they looked more organic. Maybe the whole inset was a window, with the flight deck under, rather than aft, of them.
So yeah... long winded way of saying, keep going!

Anyways Here is what I've got so far, This is the closes I've come to the eagle one pod. I am so happy, Happy, Happy.
You might not need the Hypernurbs modifier at all on the command module, or really, any part of the ship, it's very geometric; depending on how accurate to the filming miniature you are looking to produce... roughing in the basic shapes and beveling the edges should get you pro-results.

The landing bay is almost done, I gotta add the legs and its pretty much done.
Still, not bad for a company that a few years before were doing shows based on marionettes!
Keep up the excellent work!
