Lunar Models 24" Jupiter 2, actually is the Gemini 12. The lower window shutters have to be filled and rescribed. The lower hull and main viewport are definitely Gemini. Also, it is funny that a Jupiter 2 was never kitted, especially since Land of the Giants ran only 2 years and had 3 kits made: Spindrift, Snake, and (brainfart!) can't remember the third. Although, Lost in Space did get the Chariot and the Robot. I think the only "model" of the Jupiter 2 put out in the 60s was a wheeled toy in Japan. It is worth noting that it apparently reflected a thick lower hull with interior, more matching how the ship would have really looked (at least, I think!).
