VOYAGE SEAVIEW DIORAMA (MANKING NG)
A brand new factory sealed Iconic Replicas Voyage to
the Bottom of the Sea Seaview Prop Replica. Words from
As huge fans of the Irwin Allen show Voyage to the Bottom of
the Sea our first thought was 'Fantastic' we get to build a
model of the Seaview! this thought was followed very quickly
by - 'Uh Oh - which one?!'
It's a common problem when replicating a model from any TV
show as there were never any two miniatures that were the
same. As is the case with Seaview, there were several
different scale models produced - each one having unique
differences which all fans are familiar with and each fan has
his or her own favorite.
The joy of being responsible for producing this Prop Replica
is that we got to decide which version to make! - There was
still in-house 'fighting' among our model makers - do we have
the window frame detail, do we not - do we include the fine
ridge down the front of the hull or not, do we have two rows
of windows or just the one - Just joking! - We all wanted just
the one row!
What we finally decide upon was to include all the elements
that encapsulated the 'sprit' of the Seaview. To include all
aspects that immediately transported us back to being kids
glued to the TV screen, watching as this majestic craft
ploughed its way through the oceans!
And after a lot of hard work I think we have achieved that.
We should also mention at this point the artwork being
produced for the packaging - Graham Humphreys is one of the
UK's leading film promotion artists (In fact one of the few
remaining as most film posters today are simply photo-shopped
compilations) This is the guy responsible for the poster for
the likes of EVIL DEAD and NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET - some of
the most iconic poster imagery of recent decades - wait till
you see the 'scene' he is paining of the Seaview! - for
examples of other work of Grahams take a look at our sister
site, Product Enterprise as well as the recent exhibition we
held of some of his work.
