Hey Guys,

I am doing a Polar Lights Jupiter 2 build for a client. It will be a static build, Pretty much straight from the box.

With the exception of the correct Pilot seats, Accurate Astrogator and better elevator cages..Also the client requested the model be completed in an in-flight mode..so I will be filling in the slight indentations in the landing gear wells.

I have already primed the major parts, Removed those terrible molded in "bench seats", filled in the area and sanded it smooth.







More to come.....

Yes Sir,

The top will be removable, so will the rest of the upper hull, so the client can view the lower deck.

I reall don't know my client's intentions in regards to his display idea, he told me he wants the ship in flight mode.
Worked on it today...Waiting for paint to dry before proceeding. I will post more pics when there is something of interest to show.

I have to say, Even though it's interior detailing dosen't compare with the Moebius Jupiter 2, It's still a great model! Thanks to the talents of Ron Gross, who helped make this kit happen!!

Will the lower deck be as is, or will you add detail? My Son added details to my one's lower deck. Man, the ceiling down there looks a little low...:freak::tongue:

It really is not a bad kit. I finally finished mine 2 years ago. It can be "prettied"
up a bit but builds nice out of the box. I would love to get a Moebius J-2 but its just too big!

Does your kit have the corrected airlock door?

No. I had to remove it...to be attached correctly.

I'm glad they fixed it.

I'm given to understand that PL never fixed the neck of the small Klingon kit so I always wondered if they fixed the J-2 door.

That brings up another question, just how many J-2s did PL sell? they must have had at least 2 runs for them to fix the door.

I guess at least two- I got the kit on eBay sight unseen, but it had the signature of the cover artist on it, for whatever that means...

I got mine form either Cult or PL direct, I don't remember. But it was one of the really early ones.

Unfortunately no, Moebius has the LIS license. At least in North America.
