Red Dwarf

SSS Esperanto Model Miniature - Bridge

Stock #37388

A model miniature component from the Space Corps ocean seeding ship SSS Esperanto used in the production of the cult comedy TV show Red Dwarf. The wreck of the SSS Esperanto was featured in the fan-favourite episode Back To Reality, with the ship responsible for the creation of the monolithic Despair Squid that terrorises the crew throughout the episode and almost costs them their lives.

Made of wood and styrene with an array of resin, rubber and plastic dress-up components, the miniature ship piece was used for all the exterior shots of the vessel, with this piece used for the ship's bridge tower. The component is made to represent a large tower with various wheels, vents, bulkheads and sensor arrays fitted across its surface. It is hand-painted, finished in yellow with distressing applied to look as though the ship has been at rest on the sea bed for decades, with plenty of hull corrosion, barnacles and forming coral. the right hand side of the tower, which would not be seen on screen, remains partially painted.

Displaying some wear and having suffered some minor breakages from use and time spent in storage, the components remain in overall good condition.
