    Yellow Submarine Color Model (United Artists/King Features, 1968). This a wonderful piece of animation history: one of the first hand-painted cels of the Yellow Submarine ever made! This is a rare hand-painted Ink and Paint Department 16 field Color Model cel of the Yellow Submarine, used for reference during the creation of all production cels. This color model cel may have also been used as the model for many consumer products, such as album cover design, clothing, toys, posters, etc. An incredible, rare item when one considers that many of the shots of the submarine in the film made use of Letraset stickers to save time. The Yellow Submarine is an amazing 10" x 5.5". This is a holy grail for Yellow Submarine collectors! In Fine condition.
