Buck Rogers in the 25th Century - Visual Effects Model Maker - Shuttle

Buck Rogers in the 25th Century Main Page.

There were two shuttles built, a new and an aged shuttle. Mike Joyce finished the Dirty Shuttle and Ken Larson finished the Clean Shuttle. The Clean Shuttle was used in the opening sequence of the film, before the "freak accident." The molds were used two more times for the end of the first season of Battlestar Galactica and the second season of Buck Rogers.
