Polidor attack Submarine from Voyage to the Bottom of Sea

Another screen used miniature from my friend / client who a big collector of Sci Fi T.V. movie props. This is the Polidor from Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea as seen during the enemy attack sequence in the 1961 feature. This footage was also re-used in the pilot of the television series “Eleven Days to Zero”

The display base was created out of thick wood and a sculplting material called Sculptamold . The large rock formations were started with floral foam, sculpted, and then covered with Sculptamold. The Polidor (or Skipjack) as it actually started life as, needed some restoration work such as cracks repaired, paint touch-up, and a propellor added that had previously gone missing.
