I'm guessing its either the Knight Industries F.L.A.G. or Garthe Knight's Goliath 18 wheeler.
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.
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.
look inside the trailer, maybe there is a miniature kit in there
according to wiki there were at least 3 different versions of the FLAG mobile unit.
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....
FLAG mobile unit! That was my next guess!!!
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:
Very, very cool...
...can't wait to see pics of the trailer!
Teaser pic - this wasn't my unboxing this was the pic taken before it was sent.
