Superman SFX Flying Miniature
Categories: Miniature, Movie Props
Date Sold: 22/08/1970
A Superman special effects flying miniature from Richard Donner’s superhero film Superman. FX flying miniatures were used during the film for some shots of Superman (Christopher Reeve) flying through the sky.
This miniature is a resin model of Superman in his iconic blue, red and yellow costume, his arms stretched in front of him. A red fabric cape with the yellow “S” is attached to its back. There are small holes in the front and back of the model’s head, through which a filament was passed and run down a groove in the model’s lower back. Superman’s back has a hollow section to accommodate a small mechanism to make his cape flap. The model is attached via the model’s left hand to a black custom-built stand that gives the illusion of flight. There are minor chips to the paint and discolouration on Superman’s legs. Dimensions (displayed): 22 cm x 10 cm x 28.5 cm (8 1/2″ x 4″ x 11″)
