ORIGINAL JUPITER-2 MINIATURE
(New Line, 1998) This impressive large-scale filming "miniature" of the Jupiter-2 spacecraft measures a full 72 in. long x 46 in. wide x 17 in. tall. Constructed of fiberglass with resin, styrene and wood elements, it features a realistically detailed hand-painted and airbrushed exterior to resemble a deep space-weathered hull.
The ship is wired for illumination at the bow, cockpit and rear thrusters and when plugged in it makes for an impressive display. It exhibits some cracking and chipping but remains in remarkable condition.
