Battleship/Destroyer large-scale filming miniature from The Winds of War and other Paramount war films. (Paramount-TV, 1983) Battleship/Destroyer (no name, no numbers) constructed of fiberglass hull with aluminum deck and thin wooden cladding to resemble boards, swiveling cannon turrets of wood with aluminum gun barrels, towers of wood. Intricately detailed brass wire railings and tower platforms, swiveling metal cranes which elevate, lifeboats with canvas covers and rolled canvas walkway covers, metal smoke stacks with airbrushed ends, metal ladders, fire extinguishers, lamps and plastic doors, wooden rafts. Measures 25 ft. long x 5 ft. tall x 3 ft. wide. Realistically painted and detailed. Multiple spigots mounted on the lower hull to allow drainage of water taken on from the shooting sequences. The build quality and craftsmanship is truly impressive. Exhibits wear with bent metal railings, wooden deck cladding is warped and chipped. In need of restoration, but structurally sound. Sits on a metal trailer for support (serves to support ship only, not roadworthy). Special shipping arrangements will apply.
