Take a look at this freakin’ amazing Big Damn Replica Studio Scale Replica of Firefly‘s famous ship Serenity. You can find more about the specs after the jump. Oh, and on a totally unrelated topic… can I borrow $2,400?
Every bolt, every seam and every asymmetrical plate has been recreated with exacting attention to detail in this first and only screen-accurate replica of Serenity. Years of intense effort have gone into all aspects of this model, from the model sculpture built from the movie special effects master files to the paint job created to match not just the colors of the ship, but the materials as well. The Big Damn Replica will be a limited edition of only 1,000 pieces worldwide! This hefty item weighs an impressive 24 pounds and comes packaged in a collectible specialized crate that measures 16-inches tall x 12-inches wide x 24-inches lon
Serenity measures 7-inches tall x 12-inches wide x 19-inches long or 1:180 scale (display stand adds 4 1/2-inches in height). The kit used to build Serenity consists of more than 250 parts, including resin, brass, aluminum and laser-cut acrylic. Many of the parts are custom-cut by hand. All graphics on Serenity are painted on by hand, even Serenity’s logo. The Big Damn Replica incorporates some 32 lighting effects, including static, flashing, strobe and chase lights. Includes a wireless remote control to operate lights with a special button for activating “hard burn.”
Nathan Fillion will be signing the builder’s plaque that comes with each replica.
