Lost in Space ~ The Pod

Post by Johnnyred on Tue Jul 27, 2010 4:24 pm





This is a model of the Pod from Lost in Space that I’ve been working on. I will be entering it in this year’s State Fair of Texas. It’s taken me a few weeks, and I am still not done yet, but I should be in another week or so.

It is a model kit made by Moebius Models, a very fine model making company that mainly makes models of various characters, scenes, objects, or vehicles from Sci-Fi movies, TV shows, and comic books.

The model is made from a high quality plastic resin, molded in clear and a flat light grey color.

The most complex part of the model was most likely the interior of it. It did not consist of much that actually needed to be constructed. It was mainly painting various computer panels and such. The exterior is primarily two colors, A darkish orange color, and Aluminum.

I’m sorry I couldn’t get a better view of the interior, but I had masked off the back door to get it ready to prime the exterior of the model.

Well, that’s about all there is to say, I shall most likely begin priming it tomorrow, and perhaps painting as well.

Current status of the model: One coat of primer applied, second coat will be applied in a few hours, an hour or so after that, the first coat of alluminum spray paint will be applied to the exterior.

Edit: The Second coat of primer has been applied, hopefully this will be the last coat needed.

Current progress: I have given it the final coats of silver and orange paint, all this is left to do now, is hand paint a few parts and attach them to the main assembly.
