VOYAGE SEAVIEW DIORAMA (ALLEN B. URY)

Updated: June 14, 2006

From the depths of the deep, dark sea comes one of the most fantastic sci-fi vehicles of all time – the Seaview. From the mind of Irwin Allen comes a classic adventure ship full of danger around every corner. Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea™, originally a movie by Irwin Allen, debuted in September 1964 on television.

Actors Richard Basehart and David Hedison joined the cast, while guest-stars included Robert Duvall, Michael Ansara, and Victor Buono. The Seaview was the ship used to travel great depths to visit the last frontier ... the sea.

In addition to Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, Allen is synonymous with such classic sci-fi movies and television programs, including Lost in Space and Land of the Giants. In the 1970s, Irwin Allen was the "Master of Disaster" with such landmark films as The Poseidon Adventure and The Towering Inferno. Now, Polar Lights is bringing you the Seaview – a reproduction of the classic kit from the 1960s. This all plastic assembly kit comes with a dimensional base ocean floor.

This diorama was built by Allen B. Ury in 2004. Adding a Shyhook Flying Sub for that final touch. I personally would have liked to see Polar Lights creating a new ocean base for the mighty Seaview. I felt the original Aurora base was to small for this kit, and really did very little to showcase this classic kit. Maybe a few scuba divers, or a sea monster would have been great for this submarine? You Voyage fans out there...send me your thoughts on this??
