Original Vulcan Sub Miniature Prop
Vulcan submarine filming miniature from Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea episode "Lost Bomb" (ABC-TV, 1964-68). Large-scale filming miniature painted black and silver, measuring approx. 52 in. long. The sub is wired to illuminate with two forward-facing running lights, and is intricately detailed with venturi inlets along each side for submersing. In this third-season episode (originally aired December 11, 1966), this "Vulcan" submarine pursues the Seaview, which then launches two torpedoes in defense. This sub was later modified, having its conning tower moved slightly forward for use in the Irwin Allen TV movie City Beneath the Sea. A wonderful large-scale filming miniature from these two classic Irwin Allen productions, in very good condition. Special shipping arrangements will apply.

Lot 318 sold for $3,000 at the Profiles in History Hollywood Auction 62 held on 21 December 2013.
