POD







Here are some images of Moebius Models 1/24 scale Space Pod from Lost in Space. From Wikipedia "

Lost in Space is a science fiction TV series created and produced by Irwin Allen, filmed by 20th Century Fox Television, and broadcast on CBS. The show ran for three seasons, with 83 episodes airing between September 15, 1965, and March 6, 1968. Their first TV season was filmed in black and white, but the rest of them were filmed in color. In 1998, a Lost in Space movie, based on the TV series, was released. The TV series focused primarily on Jonathan Harris as Dr. Zachary Smith, originally an utterly evil would-be killer who as the first season progressed became a sympathetic anti-hero, providing comic relief to the TV show (and causing most of its problems).

The "Pod" – a small spacecraft first shown in the third and final season and modeled on the Apollo Lunar Module — was used to travel from its bay in the Jupiter 2 to destinations either on land or in space. The Pod apparently had artificial gravity too.

Nice clean build.

Just for a second, I thought it was the 'ship' from "Explorers" and I as wondering "when did they make a kit of that?"

Thanks Arkonbey - Apparently the original 3 foot filming miniature of the Space Pod is now up for auction.

Sci Fi models are a lot of fun. You should give it try Pablo. Once you start building Sci Fi there is no turning back.
