Adam Schneider – Profiles in History – STAR TREK: Phase II / Early TMP – Klingon Battle Cruiser Studio Model

Adam Schneider is a Collector that is doing an amazing service to this art form… he is preserving the original filming models from Star Trek. And he is showing them to the world! This is something that I would like to invite MORE Collectors of any of the original models to do. I applaud his efforts in these preservations, and his choice to show these amazing models that sparked our imaginations.

As taken from the actual “Profiles in History” AUCTION…

““Klingon” Battle Cruiser miniature from Star Trek Phase II and tested for Star Trek: The Motion Picture. (Paramount, 1979) Vintage original model miniature D7-class Klingon Battle Cruiser constructed of lathed and carved wood, cast resin components and other media, expertly studio assembled and painted smoke gray. The iconic ship was designed by Matt Jefferies to mimic the appearance of a manta ray. The 27 x 20 x 3 in. miniature was built for Star Trek Phase II and when the production became Star Trek: The Motion Picture, this 27-inch model was tested, but the effects department ultimately chose to build a 48-inch miniature for their needs. The impressive and solidly built miniature is detailed and finished with hand painted Klingon badging and “trefoil-like” emblem on the lower main deck exterior. Exhibiting age, chipping paint and production wear, including missing resin detailing on outer flank of starboard engine. $8,000 – $12,000
