Serenity: The Big Damn Replica

Celebrated by millions of fans around the world, the titular ship of Joss Whedon’s visionary movie masterpiece, Serenity, has existed in all its glory in digital form only – until now.

More than three years in the making, Serenity –The Big Damn Replica, has been painstakingly crafted to be absolutely screen-accurate in every aspect. Unlike most other iconic ships from science fiction, Serenity was designed from the ground up to be as realistic as possible, from her floor plan to her construction, using real-world components and manufacturing processes.  As one of her creators observed, the idea was to make Serenity so real, fans could easily imagine themselves walking her decks. With such a sense of place and familiarity, viewers would never feel lost in this Firefly-Class Transport.

When it came time to develop this replica, we could do no less. Every bolt, every seam and every asymmetrical plate has been recreated with exacting detail in this first and only screen-accurate replica. Years of intense effort have gone into all aspects of this model, from the sculpture taken directly from the movie CG master files to the paint job created to match not just the colors of the ship, but the materials as well.

Some of the features of Serenity – The Big Damn Replica:

  1. Bullet One big boat. Our Serenity measures 19″x12″x7″, or 1:180 scale. (stand adds 4.5″)

  2. Bullet Incredible complexity. The kit used to build Serenity consists of more than 250 parts, including resin, brass, aluminum and laser-cut acrylic.

  3. Bullet Film-quality build. Some 30 different colors, including flat and metallic paint, are used in the ship’s multilayer paint master.

  4. Bullet Spitting image. Weathering, wear and other painting effects are designed to exactly mirror the movie version of ship.
