Cocoon, Manta III Miniature Model Boat

original movie prop

When a group of trespassing seniors swim in a pool containing alien cocoons, they find themselves energized with youthful vigor. From the 1985 Ron Howards' sci-fi drama film Cocoon, this is a model miniature of the Manta III ship. Built for distance shots when shooting with the 6’ scale model was impractical, this HO scale 1’ miniature was used when the alien mothership lifts the Manta III from the ocean. Constructed by the Industrial Light & Magic model shop from wood and plastic, the miniature boat is expertly painted and includes figures purchased from an HO model train supply store that are painted to resemble the live action actors.
