GIANT'S SPINDRIFT DIORAMA #15 (JIM KEY)
1/35 scale Lunar Models Spindrift - 1989/90 ( first run version )
Includes display stand that reads: Spindrift, Land Of The Giants,
Manufactured by Lunar Models, Handcrafted by Jim Key.
This build-up was intended as a publicity piece for promotional
advertisements that were used in part by Mike Evans at Lunar Models to
publicize the 1/35 scale Spindrift assembly kit. After Mike built the 1st
kit, it was decided that a more accurate set be made up. I undertook two
build-ups to achieve this goal. The first of the two included a full
interior, inaccurate clear bubble dome, and inaccurate insignia. The second
build-up ( which is featured here ) had the corrected red bubble, accurate
insignia, but was not built with an interior.
For purposes of general sales, this version was deemed most appropriate
because it represented the model kit in it's standard form ( the interior
kit was an optional add-on at that time ). I added the wooden stand with
support pylon for display afterwards.
This build-up was shown to Gary Conway ( Steve Burton ) at Dixie Trek '92.
It was the last time it was shown in public.
The asking price is $2,500.00 plus shipping/insurance.
