    Description

    Spaceballs Winnebago filming miniature model. (MGM, 1987) The most iconic prop from the Sci-Fi send-up of the Star Wars phenomenon. Director Mel Brooks brings us his campy take on the "Millennium Falcon" with this, the "Eagle 5" Space Winnebago! The hyper-realistic miniature RV, retrofitted for space travel, measures 35 in. long x 10.7 in. tall x 37 in. wide. Constructed of custom made cast resin, vacuum formed plastic panels, metal, plastic and wood components. Assembled and finished with obsessive attention to minute detail like tiny rearview mirrors, a truck horn on the roof, door handles, fuel ports, decal branding to air conditioning vents, minuscule windshield wiper, realistic striping and badging, and much more. With impressive spaceship engines affixed under each wing and the "Eagle 5" insignia displayed proudly on the doors. A closer peek through the model's windshield reveals both pilot and co-pilot in place in the form of striking miniature, likenesses of "Lone Starr" (Bill Pullman) and his faithful sidekick "Barf" (John Candy) with applied hair and fabric costumes. The very finest examples of model making magic are on display in this iconic piece. Highly visible in scenes where Eagle 5 journeys through space. In production used very fine condition. Provenance: The collection of Grant McCune.
