    Is it a robotic?
    It's not robotic.

    Clue:- it's not 7-8 feet long in real life - Thus, this is a scale miniature of something.



    man - what would you guys do to me if this was all a hoax - hahaha. I swear it's a real prop -and most likely worth your time

    Okay, so to save people from guessing, it can't be in this list of tv shows that made it to the big screen (no animated series, obviously).

    The Avengers
    Battlestar Galactica
    Buck Rogers in the 25th Century
    Doctor Who
    Dukes of Hazzard
    Miami Vice
    The Muppet Show
    Knight Rider
    Saturday Night Live
    SCTV
    Sesame Street
    Star Trek
    Twin Peaks
    The X-Files
    I tried narrowing it down to shows within the last 20-30 years. I may have missed some as it was all off the top of my head without looking anything up.

    nope - good guess though - but also not mostly black as I recall... memory is foggy on that one.

    that was a good narrow down - a little too good...

    clue: the things in the two crates are not two completely separate items, they do fit together.

    alright - you all got it!!

    I can't drag it out any longer - Tried to edit the last pic so that the horns wouldn't be so obvious..




    So there it is - The FLAG mobile unit. Made by the late Jack Sessums.

    There is only one miniature that was used for the show - and here it is - It's a massive 7-8 feet long.

    It was designed, I think, so that the screenused miniatures could fit inside and roll up the back.

    here's a link: Plus - pics of the screenused miniature with the working scanner (also the only one made with a working scanner) will be up later on, as that's in another crate that I haven't unboxed yet.

    http://www.laux.org/airwolf/

    The article doesn't know if Jack ever finished the miniature with the working scanner - the answer is "no", it still doesn't have the side mirrors just like in the pic. (the one sitting on the table in the pic where he's holding one of the miniatures)



    Now - I really haven't had time to unbox the trailer - those pics will be up tomorrow - Thanks all for having some fun with me. Hopefully the cool prop pics was worth all the effort and time. Plus, now the community knows where the Semi is now - cuz it really did disappear off the face of the earth for 20-25 years. It's just been sitting in a crate.

    according to wiki there were at least 3 different versions of the FLAG mobile unit.

    I think that wiki is talking about the full sized version. That definitely wouldn't fit in my basement.

    I figured they were talking about the full sized, I just have a hard time believing they wouldn't change the scale model design either. Of course then again it wouldn't surprise me to see the truck change shape from shot to shot.

    either way, it's a pretty cool thing to have gotten.

    So now that we've had the big reveal, give us more details! Is it an exterior only type model or is there any detailing to the inside of the trailer etc?

    Oh, and this thread is worthless without more pics....

    Honestly, I have no idea - All I had time for last night was unboxing the truck part - it's made out of metal mostly - with wood parts -and really old dense resin for wheels (i think).

    The trailer part is still sitting in the original crate from Jack Sessums garage in my living room - I'm at work now - pics will come. As well as some pics from the KITT miniature with the working scanner.

    oh wait - I have pics of that.. here ya go:
