Quantummechanix has made some pretty awesome things over the years… but their latest bit… it will make some fans extremely happy.

Yes, that is the Serenity, specifically based off the movie version, and it is freaking huge.  Here are some of the stats on it from Quantummechanix’s page:

Some of the features of Serenity – The Big Damn Replica:
  • One big boat. Our Serenity measures 19″x12″x7″, or 1:180 scale. (stand adds 4.5″)
  • Incredible complexity. The kit used to build Serenity consists of more than 250 parts, including resin, brass, aluminum and laser-cut acrylic.
  • Film-quality build. Some 30 different colors, including flat and metallic paint, are used in the ship’s multilayer paint master.
  • Spitting image. Weathering, wear and other painting effects are designed to exactly mirror the movie version of ship.
  • Superior components. Surfaces are crafted to simulate real-world materials – metal, ceramic, even the mirrored surfaces of the solar panels.
  • No decals. All graphics on Serenity are painted on by hand.
  • SFX Edition. Our SFX Edition incorporates some 32 lighting effects, including static, flashing, strobe and chase lights.
