The Wind in the Willows (1983) Original Model Miniature Knight
This miniature model was used during filming, on the set of 'The Wind In The Willows'. It can be clearly seen on-screen at the bottom of the stairs at Toad Hall. Only four sets of armour were created by the production team and were used exclusively in toad hall. The model measures approx. 7in tall and is made from resin with a wooden pole attached to which would have been slipped onto a base with legs to give it the appearance of it standing. This amazing detailed model has been painted to replicate the look of beaten metal.
