Some grabs for Silent Running prop fans. :D

Nuclear "detornators" (note spelling)...

























The nuclear "trigger" for manually blowing the nuclear charges...

Those are great still grabs
I always wanted to have at least one of the nuclear detonators
and the manual trigger. Damm I would have loved to have the whole case :D
I have a camera case in that style that would hold
at least two of the detonators and the trigger
Does any body know what happened to the original prop detonators

Thanks again for the pics

Nice pics. I did a review of some classic SF films on my Podcast last week (#12) and "Silent Running" was the first film I looked at. Great movie. And cool drones, props, etc..

The morning after the screening in Seattle two weeks ago. I had breakfast with Doug Trumball.

He still has one of those and has said he would find it and send it to me for study.

He is such a nice guy.

BTW he said it was made from a 70's high performance oil filter.

I'M IN. :D

Mike, I live close to LA - aren't you in SoCal? I'd LOVE to reverse-engineer this puppy in 3D CAD - perhaps we could collaborate?

P.S. Does the loaner include the key?

FANTATIC caps. This is one of my all time favorite SF movies. The scenes of the ships riding silently through space is breathtaking.

I look forward to seeing what becomes of this. BTW, what does the letters 'AAK' on the devices signify?

No idea but American Airlines operates the space freighters that haul the forest domes.



Also note the arrow engraved above the AAK marking on this one



Note the arrow going the other way and "AAK" upside down on the next one.



Interesting aside: note that the typeface and style of the space freighters' nameplates is similar to that of the Battlestar Galactica, three years later

BSG origional series used footage of the dome ships to show the agriculture ships in the fleet. And years later, a few terrible sci-fi films used footage of BSG as stock space battle footage.

EDIT: also these are some kind of water valve.
