Here's another client build...

The client wants The whole Lighting package as well as The opening Hatches that I have put on all my Jupiter 2 Build Ups...

Also, the Space pod exterior hatch will open and close and provide access to the Battery's and switches.

The Landing gear will be able to snap on and off for a varity of display options...

Here I have removed the Space Pod Bay hatch, The Main exterior Airlock and the Internal Airlock hatch. They will slide open and close just like all my Jupiter 2 Builds...

Mark, I'd bet money that you could build these beauties blindfolded by now!
Always enjoy seeing you builds again. Thanks!

We share a common bond Mark, this is just such a fantastic kit. I love your work man. Simon at the Kit Factory is building another nice one as well. I'll be following your progress! (I am gathering parts for two more! LOL!)

I would say by now that you certainly ARE the master at J-2's! Your builds are so nice I'm kinda scared to start mine seeing what it will be measured against! I'll be keeping an eye on this thread for sure.:thumbsup:

Mark,
Are you making a "channel" above and below your hull door so it slides? I'd love to see how you do it. How are you getting that door to cut out so neatly? Just keep scribing at it with a #11? Nicely done! I enjoy watching your work immensely!

On all my Moebius Jupiter 2 builds, I have made the main Airlock hatches open and close.On the model featured in Sci Fi and Fantasy Modeler VOL 24, I opend ALL the hatches.

As I finish Up on another Build, I'll post more pics here.

UPDATE!!!!!!

My Client Jupiter 2 Build continues...

I have painted the Floor and begun the other wall builds...

Note. I can't say enough how much more time Aztek Dummy's Paint masking has saved me on this and several other builds.Highly recomended!!

Splendid work sir!

I forget if the Aztec paint mask had been released at the time i did my J2...
But i sure wish i had used it myself.

The circle on the cabin floor is perfect. :thumbsup:

Jupiter 2: aztec mask?

I picked up a Jupiter 2 real cheap but, hesitant to start it. What is Aztec mask? Also, I'm terrible with clear plastic, like windshields. I heard "future" floor finish protects these. True? Any and all tips welcome. Like the ideas I've heard already.:dude:

Nice build so far! I have yet to start mine.:thumbsup: So what exactly is "Azterc paint mask"??
They're not "Aztec paint mask", they are (as Mark stated) "Aztek Dummy's Paint masking" - i.e. painting masks made by Aztek Dummy (aka Lou Dalmaso) and sold by ParaGrafix. More info here:

http://www.paragrafix.biz/product_detail.asp?PPartNum=PGX123 :wave:

Looking good, Mark! (As always.) I'll get the etch to you as soon as it's back in stock.
