Land of the Giants Spindrift build.


Recommended Posts

So, As a favor to build one of these for a friend, I asked for a model of this craft for myself.

This is NOT the old Aurora kit or any of it's reops.

It's not the little Moebius kit released some time ago.

I do not sell Them.
I do not know who sells them/makes them. I was supplied with the kits...
I do not know how much they cost.

I do know...
It was made from files cast off of the actual "HERO" Miniature seen in the series Land of the Giants.
I love it because it is dead on...warts and all! It has ALL the flaws and subtle mistakes the original has without someone correcting them.
It's hollow and YES I am going to light it. It will also be painted and lit per the filming miniature. This is my personal Spindrift and will be worked on a little at a time between other projects.
It will be like my custom Jupiter 2, as in it will have a practical interior...Like the miniature has/had. IF motivated, I may scratch build an interior...


I am glad I waited for this. I know of a larger kit that gets attention, but the thing is all wrong. I am dull and boring that way.

I have supplied pictures of it next to my Custom Moebius Jupiter 2 and a Flying Sub I am currently working on for a friend.

The last photo shows the cockpit windows/passenger windows cut out...as well as the are under the dome.

The final Photo is an old Lunar Models Spindrift I built years ago, with full lighting and a scratch built interior as well as figures.

As noted in other threads here, the recent forum software update killed the img code function.  You have to use direct link, an address that starts with https..... and ends with .jpg. Don’t use any link with [img] in it.

I am really impressed by the quality of your builds and your video work. Do you have any tutorials or build logs?

Thanks Vern!

 

Well, I have written articles for SCIFI AND FANTASY MODELER,AMAZING FIGURE MODELER ETC...

 

However, I am not the tutorial type of guy. I personally find them boring and have more fun doing my SPFX Videos.
