I was just at the Petersen Automotive Museum last weekend in Los Angeles and I was most excited about their new Hollywood Dream Machines exhibit (running this year till May 2020) which had the original BTTF Delorean and Star Wars landspeeder, a Blade Runner spinner, and more.
After seeing those I looked around the whole exhibit and jumped in surprise when I saw a chariot model, then I shouted out loud when I saw that it's the original radio controlled model (used in Hungry Sea notably) and Synthesis has had it all these years (did anyone else know about this?!!). I apologize in advance, this miniature isn't meant for closeups but here's some pics of the exhibit in all it's glory:
Oh Wow! The interior actually is GREEN! The colorized Unaired pilot got that right after all! Thanks for sharing this, I'm glad that this iconic miniature survived and is on display.
"Here now is the Jupiter 2,the culmination of nearly 40 years of intensive research, and the most sophisticated piece of hardware yet devised by the mind of humanity. Bold in concept, brilliant in execution, this most delicate yet most colossal of instruments makes possible our thrust into deep space, and will soon set out on its quest for new worlds"
The Peterson Automotive Museum Museum is across the street a couple blocks west of the La Brea Tar Pit. I have been there a few times, but never to the Peterson Museum. Now i have a great excuse to go.
