SAGA OF AN OBSESSION – The Restoration of Silvership One – Classic Science Fiction Film Prop PART 1
In need of a project to pass the time over the winter I have decided to undertake the intricate task of performing a restoration of the original special effects filming model from Saga of a Crew, the ‘Silvership 1’
==========================================
In PART 1 we bring the carefully wrapped film prop in out of cold storage to evaluate the condition. A ‘walk around’ shows anyone curious about the design some of the most intimate details of it’s construction – getting up close – much more close than ever was intended for the prop’s original purpose of special effects photography. THIS MODEL WAS DESIGNED AND CONSTRUCTED AROUND 1978. It was featured in two earlier productions in which it was primarily clad in various silver paint shades with a little light grey, hence giving birth to the nomenclature and ‘ship class’ of ‘Silvership’. Around 1982 or 1983 the top side of the model was given a refit – first an extensive micro-detailing of the surface – then some light grey over-spray – then extensive penciling and inking of panel lines and tiny features – then weathering – and finally, coats of clear matte spray to seal the work together. Interestingly, the bottom side never received the same refit treatment, due to time restraints at the time, and the resulting decision to NOT film scenes of the underside. ==========================================
For anyone that enjoys videos about big box office subjects such as the Alien Spaceship Nostromo Model Restoration, Star Trek USS Enterprise Restoration, or Star Trek Shuttle Craft Galileo Restoration, welcome to the other end of the spectrum – the Low Budget Realm – where nevertheless, the original special effects props are just as carefully crafted and cherished by their creators.
