JUPITER-2 DIORAMA #17 (CHRIS)
To my knowledge this model was designed and executed as
a collectors piece for a LIS fan. At least 20 years ago. It seems
to be made of a heavy gauge plastic making it a very heavy kit.
It measures at 2' in diameter and 6" high. The doorway is fully
functional and opens to display the interior. The landing gear is
retractable and rendered perfectly.
My father was an antique dealer and held onto it for quite some time.
I thought that he sold all of the leftover inventory when he went out
of business years ago, but a few months back I found the Jupiter-2 in
the basement with surprisingly minor damage ( one part of the landing
gear is unattached, but can easily be glued on) other than that it
happens to be in excellent condition.
Enclosed are several photos of the ship
