JUPITER-2 DIORAMA #29 (DAVE MERRIMAN)
I had Phil Lublin (Former owner of Lunar Models) restored a vintage 4" Dave Merriman J-2 for me, and I wanted to know if you would like to post it on your site? The 4" Jupiter-2 was offered back in the late 70's early 80's as a built up model thru D & E and was advertise thru Starlog magazine.
Dave Merriman is the "D" in D & E and if your not familiar with the name, he is the one who restored the 17' Seaview studio prop
from V.T.B.O.T.S. I had wanted one of these J-2's since 1997, but this guy who had one wouldn't part with it, so several years
later I e-mailed Dave to see if he would sell me one, and he sent me one completed ship, plus another uncompleted one at no charge!! I had Phil restore it for me back in April, and just got it back two weeks ago. I have more info on this ship, including a original flyer from Starlog that Phil will be sending me copies of soon.
The pics here show the ship as I got it, plus the various stages of restoration from Phil.
