Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

Ford Tri-Motor engine cowling miniature



An original miniature from the production of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, the second instalment in the popular Indy franchise.

This is an original engine cowling for the Ford Tri-Motor miniature used in the memorable sequence where Indy (Harrison Ford), Willie (Kate Capshaw) and Short Round (Jonathan Ke Quan) find themselves stranded aboard the craft thanks to Lao Che (Roy Chiao).

This sequence was accomplished using a combination of live action footage and a miniature built by Michael Fulmer and Ira Keeler at Industrial Light & Magic (ILM), this was filmed in motion control by Dream Quest Images and also on the roof of the ILM main stage. The highly detailed engine cowling was created for use on the miniature and is constructed from resin with metal parts and finished in red paint, it measures approximately 7" long and remains in excellent production made condition exhibiting only minor paint wear, generally very fine.

A highly displayable miniature artefact from one of the most highly regarded and iconic franchises in cinematic history.
