1. Apes imprisoned in a macabre torture chamber. One ape strapped to a table with a swinging pendulum above. Another imprisoned in a spiked cage.

That's "sorta" what came to my mind ......  I just can't figure out what role Peter Lorry shoud play. Cant replace Mr. McDowell as Cornilious  ...... Peter as Dr. Zaus ?

 Dont worry about the thumbprint, paint it Rust , and call it "Battle Damage".

I just had a wonderful thought... ( see if you guy's get the same "mental image" I got.)  WHAT

What an interesting thought. To tell you the truth... I have two scenarios jumbling around in my noggin.

1. Apes imprisoned in a macabre torture chamber. One ape strapped to a table with a swinging pendulum above. Another imprisoned in a spiked cage.

2. Price replaces the apes human museum with an ape wax figure museum. Only he uses real apes to make them. He pours wax over them and calls it good. Outside the museum is an ape hitting a rubber ball that is tethered to a paddle. He smacks the ball to within inches of peoples faces.

Yeah. That's the ticket.

What say you?

You are always considering the possibilties. I like the space dio idea.

Been paid for many years to think in multiple dimesnions, which can include duration and lifecycle dimensions.  (Building design is much informed by considering to what use a building might be put in 25, 50, or 100 years.)

Also, I've been watching Amy on the Vintage Space youtube channel.  She recently visited the Kosmodrome in Kansas, which has some excellent dioramas invovling actual space hardware.

So, a germ of an idea for a LEM on a simulated lunar base, circular, inside a three-sided black lucite display case, which could have a "lid" which would be a museum roof, with LED lighting for the display.  This half-formed idea has been lurking, paused on the "museum patrons" portion of it.  And a certain amount of "which scale" too.

The $150 million worth of multi-family projects I'm currently building have hold of virtually all my vreative energies at this point.  So, let the idea loose, as it were, upon the creative fold.

Hard to decide with Chris Lee and Vincent Price too though! 

                                                      HA !

I just had a wonderful thought... ( see if you guy's get the same "mental image" I got.) 

WHAT IF: Vincent Price got the role of Tayler in Planet of the Ape's?

Cushing is probably my favorite actor of all time. Hard to decide with Chris Lee and Vincent Price too though! 

Gamera... Amen to all of that! Lee and Price are on my favorite list too. I have DVDs on most of their work. Fun stuff to watch.

Now THAT ... is funny.

Zip it!

The Hammer Frankenstein/ Peter Cushing movies are my favorites of the genre. What does that say to you? You may be right.

Hmm. Now THAT would be a cool dio.

That bird was skilled, man. I didn't even feel a breeze. I still shake my head in disbelief over that. That brownie was on its way in and I chomped on air.

                                          Now "That" is funny !

Your going to have all kind's of fun "Hacking" those people into little diorama's.

( Why am I seeing a Frankenstien like dio in your future ... ? )

Bakster: Thanks for sharing the photos and history with us. Duke was awesome! 

You are welcome. And, yes, he was!

True about the figures. But, maybe I can use the others later and for some other dio.

Here is another Duke story:

One day I was on a mission to do something outside. I don't recall what. On the way out I pass the kitchen table. Oh! Brownies! My Mom made some, and I was dang hungry. I grab a bar and beelined outside. A few steps outside and it's time to feast. I am hankering for this thing. Still walking, I raise the brownie to my open and expecting mouth...

Floop!  What the heck happened? it's gone! Did I drop it? I don't see it on the ground. I look up. The answer was in the tree. Duke is pecking away at it. Son of a...  I shake my fist at him. Duke!!!! You are going to get it! I go back in and get another brownie.

Absolutely a true story. That bird was skilled, man. I didn't even feel a breeze. I still shake my head in disbelief over that. That brownie was on its way in and I chomped on air.

Good luck with the figures. Kinda annoying you had to buy that many figures but it does give you some to practice on. you might even try converting a few to apes.

Perhaps it is the coffee kicking in (it is Black Rifle Coffee Co Beyond Black dark roast), but the question now looms as to what to do with a few dozen 1:43-1:48 figures.

A recreation of Rick's American Café, perhaps, but, you'd then need both French & Germans . . .

Hmm, perhaps a model of a museum diorama of a LEM.

Perhaps a 50s/60s airport dio with a DC-3 on the tarmac apron. (Stretching sprue to give them all cigarettes might be tedious, though).

I need more coffee.

Well, yesterday, this odd-looking spaceship crash landed spilling its occupants. Sadly--they all perished. Good thing that I don't need a live one. 

I think I will use the one on the left. That is the closest to what I need. There will be a lot of cutting going on.

Looks like a pretty good fit.

For 9 bucks--this was a pretty good value. These are pretty decent.

A TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE

Below: My Dads Hawks

My Dad feeding them. Their diet consisted mostly of raw liver.

Below: My Dad is a genius with mechanical things. One of his dreams was to build a boat and travel the world. In this image he is re-building a marine diesel that he bought for a song. 

 

Progress on his dream.

Below: Here is a Jaguar that my Dad purchased for a song. In this image the car is still being restored.

Below: This is one of serveral bushel basket Harleys that my Dad bought and restored. He developed a foot shifter even before Harley did. You can see why he didn't have much time for us kids. Between work and his projects--it kept him busy.

Below: Me feeding Duke. He liked watermelon. Look out when he had a steady diet of it; red streaming poo. We also fed him ground beef and he liked Tender Vittles cat food. It was a hoot to feed him because he'd squawk with his mouth open. You'd then push the food into the back of his throat, at which time he swallows making the funniest gobbling sounds.

 
Duke liked shiny things, or anything he could get his beak on. You'd have to watch what you leave out because he'd snatch it and fly off. One day--I was at the nearby gas station getting gas for the mower. The attendant was handing me my change when Duke swooped down and snatched the coin right out of his hands. In midflight! He then landed himself on a telephone booth. There... he enjoyed his prize. Then he flew home with it. Where he put the quarter, I do not know. He often pushed things into the lawn and covered it with a leaf. 
 

Below: Me lounging next to our black lab. Check out my bell bottom jeans. That was a wild style.

                                       L O L !!!


This remind's me of the girl that broke my heart in high school.

I hid in my room and listend to the Alan Parsons Project song , " since the last goodby"

It took 3 day's , ..... but I was soon back on a steady diet of Ozzy Ozbourne .

 

LOL!  Tim... leave it to you to understand me. Laughing. That is a funny story about your high school sweetheart. Not that it happened, but how you dealt with it. Three days seems to be the magic number. Life happenings crushed my heart many times, but nothing like this one:

My Dad, not much for spending time with us kids, sure had a passion for animals and such. We grew up on an old farm and he seemed to get every pet imaginable. Some of the more exotic was a pair of Red Tailed Hawks. He had planned to train them. He snatched the pair from a nest high up where not many would venture. They were pretty cool. Anyway, eventually, they took off. That is a long story, but he set out to get another pair. Not finding a nest of Hawks, he found a nest of crows. I suppose he thought, well, I'm up here, I might as well take a pair. He did this with a buddy from work. His buddy took one, and my Dad took one. We called ours Duke. Let me tell you, crows make awesome pets. Duke followed us everywhere, and there was many a day that he sat perched on my shoulder nuzzled next to my face. I can tell you many stories that I suppose might fill a small book. I loved that little guy. He was the most faithful pet I could have imagined. If he didn't like you though, look out. He had a pension to doo doo people as they walked below. He was very skilled. Lol. He did this to people that outwardly said that they didn't like him. Animals know these things. 

One day, I was racing around in the fields with our minibike. It was late in the summer season, and the grass was tall. I came around a bend and there was Duke. He was walking along the path. I had only a millisecond to react, it was too late. I looked back to see Duke fluttering as only any mortally wounded creature could. He was dead in seconds.

I was crushed. Like you Tim, I cried for three days straight. It was terrible. After the third day I started to recover. We had Duke for about 1 year. My Dads friend had his for I think 8 years. He told my Dad that they trained theirs to talk, like a parrot can talk. They are incredibly intelligent. 

And that is my story of Duke.

BTW Tim. Alan Parsons was one of my favorite groups to listen to. Them, Pink Floyd, and Emerson Lake and Palmer.

When it comes right down to it , were all kinda "nerdy", "sci-fi", "Plastihaulics"  here. I know where your current state of mind is coming from. Been there ... didnt glue that...... can I smash it now ?

This should cheer you up.... ( or at the very least, cause you to flashback to a more creative time in your life...)

Tim--I have no progress to report. Odd happenings--strange tales--lost shipment-- warped model--woes me. How is that for poetic monkey cheese.  

Thanks for the bump but... I've lost that lovin feeling. I hate it when that happens.

You never close your eyes anymore when I kiss your lips
And there's no tenderness like before in your fingertips
You're trying hard not to show it, [(baby)]
But baby, baby I know it

You've lost that lovin' feelin'
Whoa, that lovin' feelin'
You've lost that lovin' feelin'
Now it's gone... gone... gone... woah

Now there's no welcome look in your eyes when I reach for you
And now you're starting to criticize the things I do
It makes me just feel like crying [(baby)]
'Cause baby, something beautiful's dying

You lost that lovin' feelin'
Whoa, that lovin' feelin'
You've lost that lovin' feelin'
Now it's gone... gone... gone... woah

Baby baby, I get down on my knees for you

If you would only love me like you used to do, yeah

We had a love, a love, a love you don't find everyday

So don't, don't, don't, don't let it slip away

Baby (baby), baby (baby)
I beg of you please... please,
I need your love (I need your love),
I need your love (I need your love),
Well, bring it on back (So bring it on back),
Bring it on back (so bring it on back).

Bring back that lovin' feelin'
Whoa, that lovin' feelin'
Bring back that lovin' feelin'
'Cause it's gone... gone... gone
And I can't go on, woah

 

The Icarus--No Lovin Feeling.
