Spindrift Control Yoke
Spindrift Control Yoke from Land of the Giants (ABC-TV, 1968-70). This scratch-built prop is fabricated in wood, plastic and crude 1960s-era electronics (which once illuminated the faceplate). Hand-set lettering on the faceplate reads “Systems Control - Nuclear Balance”. The central control yoke of the Spindrift Supersonic Transport Vehicle, this prop is seen prominently in the series. Comes with the original hand drawn schematic designs for the yoke.

Sold for $2,500 at the Profiles in History Hollywood Auction 17 on 12th December 2003.
