    Looks good. I haven't picked this one up yet, I did get the space pod which I still need to build.

    Cool Job, I like to see these built. I keep getting my one out every time I see one of these built, then put it back on the shelf.

    Thanks guys!

    It's a fun kit..I added all the aftermarket Photoetch stuff to it..it gives it a sense of realism. Also using reference pics from the series(year 1), I scratch built the Gun Rack. It's set up for a lighting package which I hope to add soon.

    Every time I see a Range Rover on the streets I think of the Chariot. Great job on the build! You definitely have to add the lighting kit... though shouldn't you have done that before the final paint and assembly?

    Over the past week or so I have been researching this kit for images and reviews I found a company that makes a aftermarket dash for lighting but can't find the site again. Anyone have any info if the lighting kit from Voodoo willl include lighting for the dash? I read the specs on the light kit and interior lighting is mentioned but not sure if that will include a light under the dash if I decide to get the dash..


    Thanks from Mike

    Thanks, I will before ordering. The kit came as I expected I got mine on Amazon for a price that I could not pass on.. I was really impressed 175 parts and the box is packed. I hope the anticipation to start this build motivates me to finish my FM x-wing that I just begun working on..
    Thanks again for the pictures and info.

    Your very welcome!
    You will indeed enjoy the build(of both kits!).
    If it's possible, get a hold of the Photoetch Parts for it..It really adds to it.
    However,having said that, out of the box will build a handsome dislay piece as well.

    I concur with the rest of the gang; great work! growing up "Lost in Space" was one of my fave sci-fi shows (at least the early episodes); and the "Chariot" scenes - getting boulders hurled at it by the cyclops..I will for sure be taking my crack at it sometime soon.

    Beautiful work! I've had the Chariot, Pod and J2 kits in my closet for years and you may have just motivated me.

    Thanks for sharing the pics.
