I am making the Lost In Space "The Haunted Lighthouse" Diorama.
This will be a kit and comes with the J-2, what do you all think of it so far? It is 12" wide and the J-2 is 5 1/2" wide.

:)

I think it looks great! I've thought about doing that diorama for a long time - but I've been too lazy to scratchbuild one myself. Any idea yet what the pricing might be?

John, I don't recall seeing the big jar in that episode! I must have missed somthing...:lol:

Looks good by the way! Will the ship (not to ask a dumb question) be included with the kit? And...do you have a scale?

Looks good.

It would work for the fuel barge in "Wild Adventure" as well...I'd like to know the rough scale as well. Looking up the J2 dimensions I'd make it around 1/150? So 1/144 scale figures would work (I'm thinking of Athena/Lorelei of the Green Dimension).

LoL, The J-2 will be included in the kit. The scale is 1/76 is what I came to.

Wild Adventure ? I will need to look in to that one.
The door to the J-2 is 1" long by 3/4" wide at the bottom and 1/2" on top.
So I think it is 1/76 scale?

I worked out the scale by looking up the J2's dimensions on the net - for what that is worth, I think the site said it was 73 feet in diameter.

Of course, 1/76 is even better! Lot's more figures near that scale.

Gangway?

Although they never showed it on the show, will the kit include a docking port/tunnel from the J2 hatch to the Lighthouse? Such a thing would not be needed if modeling the fuel barge, but would be important for the Lighthouse (after all, how else would John Robinson get inside to hear the PA system give the incorrect launch date for the J2?)

That gangway could be scratch built.

cylinders

I watched "the Haunted lighthouse" on Hulu last night and noticed the station's cylinders look (to me) like they have a slanted or Bologna cut to them.

Is this an optical illusion?
