An original miniature model B-17 gun turret used in the production of the Second World War movie Memphis Belle (1990).
The film tells the story of the 25th flight of a B-17 bomber and her war-weary crew. She is the first plane to have survived long enough over war torn Europe to potentially achieve this feat and, as such, she garners much interest from the American Air force hierarchy.
The remarkable and acclaimed movie, loosely based on actual events, starred Matthew Modine, Sean Astin, Harry Connick JR, Billy Zane, Eric Stoltz, D.B. Sweeney and John Lithgow. A number of real B-17’s were located for filming with some of them being airworthy. With so few real planes available and with such dramatic action required, a number of model miniatures, of differing scales, were required for filming.
Constructed of a perpsex dome with a plastic overlay and metal rim, it remains in a well used condition, showing some damage through use on the production.
Dimensions: 7" diameter x 3.5" depth
