(Disney, 1990s) An incredibly rare Imagineers' model for the Indiana Jones Temple of the Forbidden Eye Imagineering Model. With its patented ride system, 0.5-mile queue area and 50,000-square-foot show area, the "Indiana Jones Adventure: Temple Of The Forbidden Eye" was a groundbreaking ride for the Disneyland parks. 400 Imagineers worked on the project led by Tony Baxter and his key team including Imagineer John Stone. Stone hand-built this incredibly detailed, one-of-a-kind, 28"x 46" x 10" miniature model so that the Imagineering crew could time the ride and coordinate movements and actions. An animatic, virtual "walk-through" of the ride was filmed using this model. The impressive model is expertly constructed of wood, resin, and foam core elements and realistically hand-painted to appear as the interior of an ancient and cavernous stone temple. All the important features of the attraction are present, from the rope bridge to the gigantic rolling boulder. There are moving parts as well as modular sections of the model that can be removed. Stone later took the model home and painted and finished it for display and that is how it has survived. Subsequently, Stone added elements and markers to the model, making it an actual, functioning board game. Cards and game pieces are included. Imagineering models of Disney rides rarely if ever show up for public sale. In very fine condition. This piece requires special shipping arrangements. Please inquire before bidding.
