A crashed screen matched Starbug cockpit model miniature section from the episode “Terrorform” of Rob Grant and Doug Naylor’s British sci-fi comedy series Red Dwarf V. After a moon-quake, mechanoid Kryten (Robert Llewellyn) awoke amongst a wrecked Starbug with no memory of how he got there. Clearly screen matches to the crash scene in the behind the scenes footage of this episode. This Starbug was used in multiple episodes until it was heavily weathered for the use on “Terrorform”.
Heavily weathered resin model of the Starbug’s cockpit section is painted green with black and red decal stickers affixed, the remnants of orange plastic windows, thick upper sections of front landing legs, a section of gray pipe for attaching the cockpit to a larger model, and “STARBUG 1″ painted in white on the port side. In addition to its intentional distressing, the section exhibits signs of wear and age, including hardened glue, minor paint chipping, and a bit of damage to the finish, but it remains in good overall condition and measuring 11″ x 10″ x 9” (28 cm x 25.5 cm x 23 cm). A classic piece from this very popular series.
