The closest thing to FV was VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA & that was regarded as hokey kid stuff. FV was not meant to be hokey kid stuff, but an adventure thriller for adult audiences. It was the precurssor to the APES movies, 2001, BARBARELLA, and a host more.

on screen looked no bigger or smaller than it actually was (about 42
feet long). Because of the huge window bay in front, the whole interior
was actually built inside the mockup (as opposed to the usual filming
practice of building separate interior sets for fake vehicles). The
mockup had wild sections that could be removed to shoot the interior
from different angles.
