    I have worked on this on and off for a while. Did not like the fit issues so I shelved it. Pulled it out and think I am going to revisit it this weekend.wish me luck. If anyone has tackled this one would be interested in seeing there's. Thanks

    I know one of these was modeled really far along, I have the file somewhere. It was pretty far along, I don't know why it wasn't finished, but I guess interest was lost. Life has a way of doing that.

    It looks like you are off to a good start.
    what you have so far, looks really good.
    I will be following this thread.

    That is a nice looking J2. As I'm sure you already know, the J2 is notoriously difficult to model accurately because the various sets and models never matched. Keep up the good work!

    The Jupiter II definitely had some of that "Dr. Who-Tardis-it's-bigger-on-the-inside" going on. That being said, if you did the model only modeling the main floor, it would be quite a success! :)

    Please continue with your efforts. I have seen some schematics of the Jupiter and as mentioned, it is bigger inside than the shell. You will have to use artistic license in the construction, never the less. here is a link for interior shots of the Jupiter props. http://www.uncleodiescollectibles.com/html_lib/lis-j2/00040.html I hope to see more on the build.
