Behind-The-Scenes Pix #4: BUCK ROGERS

FX expert David Stipes, working  at the Universal Hartland special effects facility, checks the lighting (I'm guessing) on one of the starfighter models from the 1979-1980 television series, Buck Rogers In The 25th Century.

For more on the Universal Hartland effects house, check out THIS SITE, established by former Hartland model-maker Ken Larson. Lots of cool photos there of the original effects miniatures that were built for Buck Rogers & Battlestar Galactica/Galactica: 1980!

Thanks to Peter Noble for the ID.


  1. That is one sweet picture! Thanks! I always figured the Starfighter models were about that exact size...
