GIANT'S ORIGINAL SPINDRIFT MINIATURE

Updated: November 19, 2009

Original Spindrift Supersonic Transport miniature from Land of the Giants. (ABC-TV, 1968-70) This exquisitely detailed "Hero" or "Beauty" miniature of the highly recognizable Supersonic transport craft was seen on-screen in numerous episodes of Land of the Giants, including the pilot, and was often depicted being examined and/or attacked by the menacing giant-sized humans and animals in the show. The piece features a variety of interesting design details, including original custom paint with pinstriping, recessed hatch door, brass grill honeycombed engine cowlings, tail fin, Plexiglas cockpit window with visible interior, weather antenna, dome, spindrift insignia decal and a phenomenal 1960s-vintage internal electric drum engine, which creates a crude, yet sophisticated alternating lighting effect, simulating the vehicle's nuclear-powered engines. (Loud but effective!).

The miniature is fabricated from fiberglass, and measures 40 in. (long) x 20 in. (wide) x 12 in. (tall). Comes with a small photograph (pictured) of Deanna Lund, who played Valerie Scott on the series, with the model. A rare museum-quality miniature which has immediate recognition among TV viewers of the era. The only one of its kind!

Value: $15,000. - $25,000.
