Mike Trim Pre-Finished Lunar Interceptor Model

14.00 LBS

Product Description

Launch Interceptors!
In 1964, young Mike Trim answered a newspaper advertisement seeking modelmakers for a film production crew and began an odyssey that would last for more than forty years. Beginning in the final days of Stingray, Trim would work as a modelmaker and designer for Gerry and Sylvia Anderson''s television series Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet, Joe 90, The Secret Service, and UFO, as well as their feature films Thunderbirds are Go, Thunderbird 6, and Journey to the Far Side of the Sun (a.k.a. Doppelganger).
Starting out in the model shop, Mike soon became Special Effects director Derek Meddings'' assistant in designing the fabulous futuristic vehicles, buildings, and look of the Andersons'' imaginitive series. Eventually, he would take on the bulk of design work for the series as Meddings became more involved in feature films.Contributing a single (unused) vehicle design and model to Space: 1999, Trim then moved into freelance illustration, creating an iconic cover painting for one of the best selling albums of all time; Jeff Wayne''s Musical Version of The War Of The Worlds, in 1978.

The Lunar Interceptor model is based on Mike''s original design for the Moonbase Interceptor from UFO, which was rejected by Derek Meddings in favor of his own design. Based on the real space hardware of the 1970''s, Mike''s Interceptor is a more practical, realistic workhorse of a vehicle than the final version seen in the series.
The Lunar Interceptor model measures twenty-two inches long, and comes fully assembled and detailed, ready to display. It includes a removable missile and terrain themed display stand, as shown.
This model is fully licensed by designer Mike Trim, and will include a certificate of authenticity signed by Mike. He has also created new, full color artwork for the packaging.
This model will be very limited! Edition size is yet to be determined, but will not exceed 200 pieces worldwide. The prototype and patterns for this model have been meticulously crafted by BP Taylor and Bill Early.
