WAR OF THE ROBOTS DIORAMA #04
Here is a scene depicted from one of my all time favorite epiosodes from the classic TV
series, Lost in Space. From first season (1965-66) "War of the Robots, featuring the
B-9 Robot fighting off Robby the Robot from his early debut of Forbidden Planet fame.
This diorama was custom built and painted using the great Polar Lights kits. Later
adding a molded terrain from train model molds using plaster, then sand with gravel
and plant material, to make is look as much like an alien planet. The Robots
themselves took alot of time detailing, and painting watching both the video and movie
for the best detail. Sample door and hose on the B-9 was added for his one-time used
Both Robots are removeable from the base which is made of wood. The wood finished base
is 14 inches x 10. The pictures do not do this piece justice. The base is very real
looking, with real branches used for trees. The B-9 Robot's torso is poseable (rotates).
