After months of teasing, QMx has finally brought out their biggest project yet: the film-quality, made-to-order Serenity model.
Measuring 19″x12″x7″, or 1:180 scale, this baby is incredibly screen-accurate right down to the bolts and weathering. Over 250 parts, hand-painted, with built-in lighting and engine effects. It doesn’t get any more accurate than this.
When it came time to develop this replica, we could do no less. Every bolt, every seam and every asymmetrical plate has been recreated with exacting detail in this first and only screen-accurate replica. Years of intense effort have gone into all aspects of this model, from the sculpture taken directly from the movie CG master files to the paint job created to match not just the colors of the ship, but the materials as well.
Each one is made to order, and you can choose whether to have the lighting included or not. You can also choose various personal touches, like the position of the engines, whether the shuttles are docked or not, the name on the captain’s plate and more.
No more than 500 will be made. They’ll start taking orders September 30, 2009, which is a nice touch. I also note that a price is not listed anywhere on the page, but I’m not sure if I’m disappointed or relieved at this point 🙂
Go and gaze, and check out the video of the lighting effects. It’ll be on display at the Sideshow Collectibles booth at Comic-Con (#1929) along with their other new launch, the Enterprise replica.
