This model is the result of 6 years research and professional model making skills to ensure the most accurate replica of the original BBC studio miniature ever produced.
From the very beginning I wanted it to not only be dimensionally and aesthetically accurate but also using the same materials for 100% authenticity.
I had access to the original studio model and over two visits with approx 200 photographs of the measuring process, the model was accurately measured and documented using specialist measuring tools to ensure all dimensions taken were correct.
The model measure 41 inches long x 22 inches wide as the original. 104 x 56cm
The weapons pods are solid turned wood.
The green dome was custom made
The same pvc model making pipe was used for the main body.
The paint work was painstakingly carried out using around 20 differnent stencils using layers of airbrush shading and
100s of pencil lines just as used on the original.
The model is very heavy and dismantles for transport. The three weapons pod arms have two 10mm threaded rod
through each of them which bolt the weapons pods to the main body and are removable. The rear dome also comes off for transport.
The green dome has LED lighting effects exactly as seen in the series with variable flash/pulse speed and also constant on.
This is done via a remote unit that had a special circuit designed to give the same effect as the TV model.
Power to the dome light is from a universal jack which is on the top of the mounting pole which connects when the model
is on the 5 foot high tripod display stand
