1-35 Scale. The Moebius Jupiter 2 is approximately 18-inches in diameter. Full first floor interior with careful attention to accuracy. Manually retracting landing gear makes this displayable in a flight mode, or on land as seen in many episodes.

Looks like I will have to plan a stop at a hobby store.
Producing this kit must have been a labor of love. The quality is such that the finished spacecraft will likely surpass any of the special effects models used during the filming of the original series. In all honesty if I had this kit when I was eight years old I would have completed it two hours after opening the box - though it would not have been painted and would likely have fingerprint glue smears all over. However, more than four decades later, I intend to take my time with this project.
The top and bottom saucers are complete sections. In toying around with the kit I provisionally placed one on top of the other and instantly had the familiar Jupiter 2 shape. The kit includes materials to complete the interior flight deck level of the Jupiter 2 along with the landing gear. This is truly a quality kit.
When LOST IN SPACE was still in first-run prime time I longed for a toy model of the Jupiter 2. Alas, there were none to be found. Our neighbors had a Lost in Space play set with two large white Styrofoam "woks" that together were supposed to be the Jupiter 2, but in reality looked nothing like the Irwin Allen spacecraft. I constructed various versions of the Jupiter 2 using stapled white paper plates and taped up construction paper. It would take a lot of imagination to believe that those attempts were anything close to the Jupiter ship.
The television Jupiter 2 went through several modifications during the series' three year run. The Jupiter 2 was originally named Gemini 12 in the unaired pilot. The Gemini 12 did not have a second living quarters deck. As a result the original Jupiter 2 special effects footage - recycled throughout the series - displayed a thinner version of the ship than appeared in other clips. One wonders where the Robinsons found room to store the Chariot. In Season Three the Pod bay was also added, though it is likewise debatable if the spacial limitations of the Jupiter could accommodate a shuttle craft. Remember too Irwin Allen's VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA belatedly added a bay for the Flying Sub.
Season Three of LOST IN SPACE also featured an episode where the Jupiter boasted yet a third reactor core deck. This one time third floor is not reflected in this modeling kit.
This kit is representative of the Season Three Jupiter 2 complete with an impression of the Pod bay doors.
I am sure this kit will take me some time to assemble, but it was worth the 40-year wait.
