The Serenity Filming Miniature

POSTED BY chrisdvanne ON Jan 03, 2012 / 2 COMMENTS

Quantum Mechanix an online shop known for its screen-accurate replicas, collectibles, apparel and artwork inspired by entertainment’s most beloved shows and movies; it has published on its Facebook account a photo of a Serenity Filming Miniature with the following story.

The Ultimate Recovered Artifact: The Serenity Filming Miniature

"About three months ago, while getting a very rare tour of the Universal archives, we came across something tucked into a corner and covered in plastic that made our hearts skip a beat: a highly-detailed 12-foot-long filming model of the Reaverized Serenity. We could hardly believe what we were seeing!

As many Browncoats know, there has been a rumor around for years that a filming miniature used for the crash scene on Mr. Universe's planet. But that rumor was either denied as either being totally false, or that the miniature used was a simple styrofoam model. As you can see from the picture below, it does exist and is about as far from a "simple" model as you could imagine.

The archivists were generous enough to let us come back last month with a camera and crew to fully document the model – ALL 12 FEET OF HER! So, to start off the New Year right, we wanted to introduce you to the biggest, most impressive Serenity ever made (QMx designer Hawk included for scale)."
