Fantastic Plastic will release at Wonderfest 2014, a 1/48 resin kit of the "Oblivion" movie "Bubble Ship." A

"Oblivion" (2013) featured mega-star Tom Cruise as a high-tech fix-it man charged with maintaining a fleet of security drones on a post-apocalyptic Earth. His main ride was the "Bubble Ship," a super-sleek jet helicopter-like vehicle designed by Daniel Simon.

"Inspired by both insect anatomy and post-WWII "Whirlybirds," the Bubble Ship could carry two adults and was equipped with two twin-barreled rotating machine guns. As demonstrated late in the film, the vehicle was capable of spaceflight as well as traditional atmospheric operation.

"Fantastic Plastic's Bubble Ship kit features clear-resin cockpit components, swiveling machine gun turrets, and the choice of resin (in-flight) or white metal (landed) landing gear.
