Say, who was in posting in the fan art section who built the shuttlecraft Halloween display? He purposely used less durable materials as it was meant to be only temporary; but with stronger pieces, his design would have served well as a permanent fixture for the kids.
That was Bradester, in this thread.

SOLD for $71,150.

I'm not sure who bought her but the in-folks at HobbyTalk are happy about it, and he promises to fix her up nice.

Odd, I figured it would have reached 100K at the very least.

Hopefully, it won't "vanish" again for another couple of decades.

Sincerely,

Bill

Auction closed at noon today EST. Galileo purchased for $61,000 (plus a 15% buyer's premium that goes to the auction house).

Congrats to the new owners--and to the former owner who was able to recoup some money on her two-decade-long investment.

I'm the Adam in question. We are very very happy to have the opportunity to acquire and renovate Galileo.

Let me assure you we have a straightforward goal: restore her and put her on display for the fans. Details to follow - when we have them. This will take a great deal of time and resources. But i'm confident we will be proud of the result.

I know the internet is an excellent source of opinions, support, and on occasion criticism. No doubt many will chime in with opinions and ideas. We welcome your commentary and support - as this is going to be hard.

More to come!

Heck, post pictures along the way as each "Phase" is finished, no need to wait until it's completely finished

Adam is it going just to a fixed location display or on tour initially.

Indeed, this would be a great "remaking of" book or movie (or both). Pitch this idea to the appropriate people, and maybe you could recoup some of your investment?

Congratulations! Looking forward to seeing Galileo back to her beautiful self!

Question: Are there any plans to do any type of interior restoration? I know the interior set was larger than the exterior but thought that some type of compromise could be made to do something with the interior instead of just displaying the shell.

Thanks for the link, Forbin. An interesting and tangled web of history for this poor old prop. The history there isn't completely up to date, though. Still, it's amazing how it was completely restored at one point, but then left to be exposed to the elements thereafter for many years, resulting in gradual deterioration yet again. I had no idea there were 3 separate attempts to restore it.


Anyway, great to know it's in enthusiastic hands this time around with a group investment to help finance the restoration. It would be terrific if the owners could provide photos during the process and even grant limited viewings to people by conditional arrangement.

Hopefully the shuttle's new owners will coat it with real duranium this time around, in case it is left outside again.
