Original Spindrift Supersonic Transport miniature from Land
of the Giants. (ABC-TV, 1968-70) This exquisitely detailed "Hero"
or "Beauty" miniature of the highly recognizable Supersonic
transport craft was seen on-screen in numerous episodes of Land of
the Giants, including the pilot, and was often depicted being
examined and/or attacked by the menacing giant-sized humans and
animals in the show. The piece features a variety of interesting
design details, including original custom paint with pinstriping,
recessed hatch door, brass grill honeycombed engine cowlings, tail
fin, Plexiglas cockpit window with visible interior, weather
antenna, dome, spindrift insignia decal and a phenomenal
1960s-vintage internal electric drum engine, which creates a
crude, yet sophisticated alternating lighting effect, simulating
the vehicle's nuclear-powered engines. (Loud but effective!).
