1/35 Moebius Jupiter 2 from TV show Lost in Space

March 25, 2023 · in Sci-fi · · 10 · 0.9K

This next build was a commissioned build of the scale from the TV show “” The client supplied the kit and all the accessories he would like added to the kit. The TV show ran from 1965 to 1968 and was produced by Irwin Allen. The premise of the show was the Robinson family set out look for other planets for space colonization. The ship was knocked off course and they were lost in space.

There is a stack of accessory items that were supplied by the client. The first add-on was the Moebius Light Kit, this is a kit sold by the kit maker Moebius to illuminate the interior and provide the engine and external lights. The second add-on used was the Starling sound board, this provides the sounds of the ships engine spinning up and running for about 20 seconds. A remote control system to operate the lights and sounds via a 4-button remote control was supplied by Tenacontrols. The next add-on was Green Strawberry's 1/35 resin figures of the Robinson family. These figures are placed in the cryo freezing tubes that suspended the crew for the long journey into space. Video at bottom of page.

  1. Superb result, David!

  2. Brings back memories. David, looks like the kit touches upon everything but, the kitchen sink. The only crew member missing is the robot. Danger Will Robinson, Danger Will Robinson! I spent too many hours watching the program. It really was a motivator for building kits and appreciating Science Fiction

    Two thumbs up.

    Smashed the "Like" button.

  3. Amazing, I’m not into science fiction at all (except having a liking for some of Dr Who’s “assistants”), but the modelling and enthusiasm is admirable.

  4. Looks great, David. Reminiscing for sure!

  5. This turned out amazing, David @davids_models
    All the lighting does make it look very 'realistic'.
    Well done with all the required wiring.

  6. Nice work, it really shines with the accessories you installed.

  7. That was a great TV show... I enjoyed watching it in the 60s and as reruns in the 70s. The model turned out excellently

  8. Unbelievably cool by any standard. Love the lights and sound, just needs a launch base to sit it on and its perfect.

  9. Very nice...the addition of lights and sound is awesome. I always make it over to the Sci-Fi section of the shows, those builders are doing some incredible work. Yours is a great example of that, it looks awesome and all that lighting just makes it shine (pun intended).
