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
a lot 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 smokescreen.
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).
