Future Fleets Models No.001 Seaview a waterline model of a super-submarine 1/1200
Seaview is a 1/1200 scale waterline resin model of a nuclear powered, Polaris armed submarine model from the 1961 film "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea" by the new maker Future Fleets no.001. The model is fullyfinished and painted in medium grey and lightly weathered.
The maker asked that the model be photographed in front of the Coastlines model of the Bangor missile loading marginal quay for which he had designed the model of the large crane and this shows the large size of the submarine.
The waterline 1/1200 scale model of Seaview represents the super-submarine as she appeared in the 1961 film which starred Walter Pigeon as her eccentric captain. At least three large scale models were made for the film and they were all slightly different. The film spawned a TV series which used different models of Seaview (different windows on the bow, diving planes on a different part of the conning tower and the conning tower in a different location on the hull, to name but a few of the differences) and it is hoped to produce this version later on. A full hull model and a model surfacing at the North Pole are being cast now. There is also talk of a model of the USS Skipjack-class attack submarine that appears in the film being made.
