Up for auction is this complete one-off, much admired, screen-used, beautifully crafted submarine model used by Mike Tucker and The Model unit in the filming of ‘TARDIScam 4’.  For anyone unaware, Mike worked producing special effects for both classic and new Doctor Who as well as several other ‘Who’ related projects). The model is unique and was a custom build by Peter Tyler who has been the Director of Photography for much of the Model Unit’s output. The submarine was used in the commissioned short BBC  Doctor Who film ‘TARDIS-CAM 4’ which first appeared on the official BBC Doctor Who web site and then as an extra on both ‘Resurrection of the Daleks’ DVD releases.  Each ‘TARDIS-CAM’ pictured the TARDIS in a different location.  The films were made in the run-up to the then new 2005 re-launch of the show.  In this short film, the TARDIS has landed in an undersea base; outside a large viewing window the Submarine can be seen lifting off the sea-bed, with both its lights flaring.  The TARDIS is then seen materialising inside the sea-base.

In the image selection are various images of the Model Unit team preparing the submarine and the set for filming.  The Sub was hung and filmed through a ‘sheet’ of water with its lights on.  The screen shots show the sub moving off in the film.

History:

I bought the model from ‘The Propstore of London’ in about 2006.  They had bought it direct from Peter Tyler.  Peter himself has been in contact with me personally regarding the selling of the model to the Propstore, to confirm that it was he (not Mike) who built and sold the model on.  Peter had made the model as a personal project and loaned it to Mike for the TARDIScam shoot.  As previously stated, Peter performed much of the filming for Mike Tucker and indeed did so for TARDIScam 4. 

Description:

1:  This is a big model – approx 3 feet long.  It is made of various plastic components comprising vac formed sections and various cast pieces.  It has been beautifully detailed and weathered. 

2:  It features two 12V, 20 Watt halogen bulbs that light up (with the addition of a battery inside).  The inside of the sub can be accessed by removing a screw on the underside and the front window assembly becomes loose.   

3:  It has an articulated arm which can be posed.

4:  It comes with a unique CD showing test film footage of the sub (whereby the team can be heard discussing the model in the background). Also included is a laminated, wire bound booklet with photos of the sub and the original ‘PropStore’ web sale page.

5:  ‘Propstore of London’ COA.

Condition: 

The model is in excellent condition and has been lovingly looked after (hung from wires, out of harms way in my Who collection room).

The model is stunning and I’m reluctantly selling as I live in a very small house and need to clear a room to make a bedroom for our toddler!  Some of my Who collection is having to go and the size of this piece is difficult for my domestic situation!! 

POSTAGE: UK:  PLEASE READ BEFORE BIDDING-  I travelled down to London to collect the model in person due to the nature of the model.  Personal collection is advised, however, I will post the model- it will probably have to be by courier- under the following conditions:

-         If the model is posted I will wrap it as thoroughly as I can inside a tough plastic crate.

-         Due to the fragile nature of the model, despite being wrapped it is possible a part might drop off.  I cannot/will not take responsibility for this. The buyer must assume responsibility for the repair under these circumstances (although as with most models, anything that falls off can be stuck back on again!!!).

I will post, but please read the notes in the description as this will be costly and I have no estimate at present as to what that could be (it's large and fragile and would really need a courier).
