Simulant Battle Cruiser filming miniature sections
Original spacecraft parts used in the production of the BBC science fiction comedy series Red Dwarf.
These are original sections of the Simulant Battle Cruiser filming miniature seen on screen in the Series VI episodes Gunmen of the Apocalypse and Rimmerworld. The craft was designed and built by Alan 'Rocky' Marshall of the BBC Visual Effects Department largely from a variety of plastics with various detailing. After filming the beauty shots the craft was exploded by technician Paul McGuinness for the scene where it is destroyed by Starbug in Rimmerworld. These sections were retained by a crew member after the shoot with the lot consisting of four pieces which are constructed from EMA plastic dressed with rubber matting, these having been painted and weathered to a high standard.
The miniature sections remain in the condition you would expect, broken with some wear, the largest measuring approximately 4" wide.
