I wondered if anyone else had any examples of models making an appearance in films or TV programmes?
I’ve recently been watching The Sweeney on Amazon Prime and in episode 1 of series 2 Paul Jones (at one time the singer in Manfred Mann) comes home from doing another armed robbery and chats to his dad who’s having a quiet evening in building the Airfix SR.N4 Hovercraft kit. In fact he seems to have two on the go as it looks like there is another on the table nearer the camera.
I also saw the 1960s Howard Hawks movie ‘Red Line 7000’ a few days ago, about Indy car racers and their girlfriends. Towards the end there is a scene in the bar they all go to where a group is racing slot cars; there’s a close up shot of the bridge over the track as the cars go through with ‘Revell’ on it. Sadly I couldn’t get a photo as it was on live TV, the closest I could find on the web is below. That’s James Caan in the centre.
