Fire Extinguisher used by Dobson to knock out Book

Postby keelhauler » Sat Nov 14, 2009 11:19 pm

I picked this up from 20th Century Props recently. It was used on the show and I think it's the rubber stunt prop used by Dobson when he knocks out Book.

Here's the real extinguisher on the wall

On the show, you can see the blue paint has chipped of significantly on the bottom of the extinguisher. It appears that later, the exposed sliver areas were repainted blue and then most of the bottle was covered in clear packing tape to keep the paint from flaking off more.

You guys who are buying all these ship accessories DO realize that the day will come...
when you are going to feel the need to build a Firefly ship set to put them in.

That will be an INTERESTING day....

PS: Cool acquisition, by the way!

Hey, I already have a wall section with commo panel and air mask.
A fire extinguisher would look right at home on there, come to think of it.

Hell, I'm trying to track down a boeing pilot's seat like Wash had for my computer desk.

That's not weird, right?
May have been on the losin' side, still not convinced it was the wrong one.

Nope, not weird at all! Seriously!! That would be a cool acquisition. I'd totally put one in my house! :lol:

That's a nice addition to your collection. Are you going to restore it?

Thanks. Not a major piece, but still neat to have. I was happy to get it and very surprised that it was well within my price range! :D I hadn't actually thought about restoring it. I probably won't though. If it had been in pristine condition when used on the show, then maybe, but since it was flaking and already in rough shape when Dobson used it, I will keep it as it is. Plus, I wouldn't trust my skills (or 'lack of') to fix up a screenused piece! :lol:
