    I’ve seen video from Wonderfest. The policy might have changed, but, at one time, it was jake. As a matter of fact, one clip was of the Moebius J2, not long after it was released. I also met Sybil Danning, there. She always reminded me of the women that Wally Wood drew.

    Don’t forget to message me the height and width ( top and bottom ) of the main hatch door of the 18″ J-2 so I can get a reference for building the B9’s Papa.

    Hey Simon, so happy to see you making more J2’s. I am doing my second now. I was just wondering do you use the kit clear window or do you change it with something else?

      I have used actual plate glass…the very thin stuff….but if the part is clear, and unscratched…it’s fine to use. Glass requires mods to frame…but upon request…I do it…

    What a great show Simon, I can’t wait to see the progression. Lost in Space was my favorite show as a kid and I’ll still watch now and then. And as always, I enjoy your special effects and your video clips.

      Oh….me as well….as a youngster…this and Batman were the highlights of my week. It’s a complex project…and as always…I add features every time I do one!

    How about doing a studio scale Jupiter 2 with your Big E partner? I bet there would be some interest from your circle. Especially if you were able to include the Pod and the Chariot. Maybe get someone like Jimmy Flintstone to sculpt new accurate figures. Maybe have the blast shield on the downstairs windows slide back and forth so you could look in the rooms down there. There is a guy who has done the bulkheads for the ship as a 3D print. The article is here: https://culttvman.com/main/tag/drew-petitclerc/
