Default Do you have a favorite SET built for a non-Anderson Movie or TV series?

Do you have a favorite SET actually built full-scale (not C.G. or not Matte or not miniature) for a non-Anderson Movie or TV series?



My first example:


NCC-1701-A Enterprise Class HANGAR DECK SET from the 1989 movie STAR TREK 5 Final Frontier.

I think that the early scene when the shuttlecraft(Kirk & co.) first arrives from Earth into the Hangar Deck with Scotty in the Control Room you get a sense of the immensity of this set design that was actually built full-scale and complete.

In terms of an SF film, I think the 2001 centrifuge set remains an outstanding example of a full-scale design: it simply worked on so many levels - logically, aesthetically, and functionally, for the purposes of a movie.

Talkin of Centrifuges the one from "Mission to Mars" was also built full size there was a scene where "McConnell" (Gary Sinse) was actually strapped to a chair as it when round he did the full 360 while "Blake" (Tim Robbins) climbed down the ladder to the set floor!!!!

A direct rip from 2001 where Lockwood is strapped in his chair while Dullea walks down the ladder.

Smile DS9 and Voyager....

The Deep Space Nine promenade standing set was very impressive I seem to remember. It was comprehensive, detailed, huge and surprisingly functional (switches, lights and what not's).

The Voyager ship sets were like wise, metal structures were more often than not made from metal (corridor hand rails for example - 2 inches wide and 1/2 in thick solid brushed Aluminium - some had to be 20+ feet long). The command bridge was very functional, plushly finished and were just being detail painted when I visited, about 1994/5.

The Next Generation sets were struck before I arrived but evidence of them was everywhere, the painted floor from Data's lab was still intact and at 6 big strides was bigger than I expected too, the set that Lal stands in when she is being activated and examined was hanging from the ceiling and was beautifully made. Amazing what can be done with a decent budget.

No pictures unfortunately, the studio lot guards would strip the film from any camera they caught you with (pre-digital age) and they really looked I'll tell ya.....

Default You only live twice.

As far as movie sets go, I think it has to be one of the James Bond films. SPECTRE's volcano hideout does it for me.

Thumbs up The Tomorrow People....

Sad git sensors to off please.....

I was really impressed with the "Lab" set from the first series of the Tomorrow People (1973/4) I thought they did really well with the coffee money budget they had. I remember going to many a disco in the 1970's / 80's that used the same oil wheel spotlight effect. I also thought the placement in an abandoned underground station was clever and what do you know? Biotronic Computers..!!

Sammie Winmill (Carol) was a hottie too

One of the Space: 1999 links is Martin Bower, he made a few models for the show, one that impressed me was the winged space station that had a revolving centre and was covered with Airfix Bloodhound Missiles (For the episode called the Doomsday Men). The set for this was impressive too as it wasn't just a set of flats and fly panels. There was a detailed mezzanine floor and intricate roofing materials it looked and sounded the part.

Best full sized set for me is the interior of Stromberg's Liperius tanker in The Spy Who Loved Me. Got to agree about Sammie Windmill in the Tomorrow People. She was the subject of my first TV crush!

Millennium Falcon in the Death Star Docking Bay in STAR WARS:A New Hope 1977.



Hoth Rebel Echo Base ice hangar in EMPIRE STRIKES BACK 1980.



Although only used in two episodes "Derelict" "Visit To A Hostile Planet" of the 1965-68 'Lost In Space' TV series. I was impressed that a full-scale mock-up Jupiter 2 was built.
I also liked the SETS for the Upper Flight Deck with the docked Spacepod in the Podbay and the Lower Deck with Power Core of the Jupiter 2 of the 1965-68 'Lost In Space' TV series:

J2 Upperdeck exterior planet set

J2 Upperdeck

J2 Upperdeck
J2 Upperdeck the Podbay door open to see the Spacepod(orange) docked inside.


J2 Lowerdeck

J2 Power Core(lowest 3rd deck)


I can not forget the full-scale Spacepod mockup built separate for missions away from the J2:

Smaller scale I know but I always loved Roger Murray Leach's stuff for the BBC, especially the Liberator Flightdeck from Blake's 7.
