8 Window Movie Seaview
This is the Moebius 1/128th scale, 8 Window, Seaview Submarine from Irwin Allen's 1961 movie "Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea". This Submarine can also be seen in season one of the 1964 TV series "Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea". Pro built, this stunning model shows absolutely meticulous craftsmanship and attention to every detail. Built as a "museum quality" piece, this seamless and beautifully detailed build took over 2 months from start to finish, to build. The model is finished in Intermediate Blue on the upper hull, and Camouflage Gray enamel on the underside. The forward observation room has been detailed with Paragrafix brand decals as well as enamel paints. A total of 9 - 9 Volt, 100K hour rated LEDs were used to supply all the lighting effects. The model can be displayed with or without the Polaris Missile being fired (see photo #11). I've designed a custom display base, featuring a laser etched nameplate which reads "THE N. I. M. R. / S.S.R.N. SEAVIEW". The display base was designed to allow the sub to be displayed pointing to the left or to the right. Everything was assembled using CA or epoxy adhesives.
