A DSRV-1 Mystic submarine model miniature from the production of John McTiernan's war thriller The Hunt for Red October. Jack Ryan (Alec Baldwin) used the U.S.S. Dallas' deep-submergence rescue vehicle (DSRV) to board Red October. Model miniature submarines were filmed with motion control in a dry, smoky room to simulate underwater sequences.
This miniature submarine, designed by model maker David Merriman and fabricated by Industrial Light & Magic (ILM), is constructed of hand-painted fiberglass and styrene plastic components with hand-applied and stenciled decals reading "DSRV Mystic" and "Danger High Voltage". Cut wires protrude from a section of the underside designed for mounting and operating the model.
The miniature is in fair overall condition with some of the propeller snapped off the front and other punctures and wear present. Dimensions: 52" x 16" x 10" (129.75 cm x 40.75 cm x 25.5 cm)
Contains mechanical components; see notice in the Buyer's Guide
Estimate: $12,000 - 16,000
