I had to go back and re-read a bunch for the New Year. That had to add a few dozen views.

Lol..  You are a good man, Charlie Brown.

Nino
"... Well, what do you think: We can bury her or burn her?  Well, um, which would you recommend?"

Laughing...

For me--this thread reminds me of Seinfeld. Seinfeld is the show about nothing.

What did you do today? "I got up, and I went to work." There you go...there is a show.

Nino
Well, the important thing is you made it to 22,000 views.

Oh boy. What's Timmy got for me this time? It'll be good I am sure.

Some of this is starting to remind me of Monty Python:

I like that! Great idea Tiny Tim

This idea might have been floated by Tim before. I seem to recall something. I was not ready to even consider it. But, you get some credit too, Gam. Your started the conversation in that direction. Heck--I can thank all of you that are posting because one comment lead to another.  So--thanks guys.

Icarus may live again.

Now that's a thought. And I get to smash it too! You have a creative mind, sir

 

Just a thought ....

You could build it as the ship from the second movie.

Scorch it a bit, in all the poorly molded places, and your back in business.

( And, yes .... you get to "smack it around" as much as you want.)

 

 

 

Interesting. I'll put that in my pipe and smoke it some. Not a bad idea guys.

 

 

I like that! Great idea Tiny Tim... um I mean Little Timmy... Embarrassed

Steve, nice to hear from you. Yeah, I have to say that the idea provides a path that is somewhat palatable to me. Turning a warty hole ridden goblin into a shattered burned out corpse... well, that might just work. It's not much of a leap from one condition to the other.

I have two other projects going on now. So, this will have to wait. But, there may be hope for the beast in an alternate form.

Well, you could build a diorama with an ape on top of it beating it with a shovel...

Now that's a thought. And I get to smash it too! You have a creative mind, sir. Stick out tongue

Gamera
Personally I think it might be the biggest 'up yours' statement in any movie. You kill Taylor's girlfriend and he blows up your planet..... 

LOL

Gamera
More thought, which spacecraft did the apes launch in 'Escape From Planet of the Apes'? I guess the one the second expedition arrived in would still be there on Earth. 

I think you are right.

Oh wait, Taylor detonated the Omega bomb and blew everything to hell and gone. Sorry, well it was an idea...

Put the Icarus on a base covered in sand and cover the flaws with sand or weeds and tell people it's the Icarus 30 years after the movie.

 

But... but-- can I smack it with a shovel first? LOL.

OH.... yeah.

Yes

In the meantime, I like that pic about painting Rubick's cube Cliff posted a few posts up.

 

I have to admit..... in 1983, I took mine apart.....and re-assembled it.

Bingo !   Solved !

 

Yeah, there's always a quick, cheap, and dirty solution...

Just trying to see, if we can get this thread to 22,000 view's

What's going on here, discouragement? I'll have to read back, been gone too long.

Greg! This ship has passed. Where to? It's passed into the land of wartdom! Now... you may not get that reference because you didn't follow this tragedy--but Capn sure gets it. He even has a scientific name for said affliction. 

Surprise

What's that, you say ? You found a strange lump of resin under the doll ???

Um ... yes Dr Zaius. It was at this level where I found the lump of resin. And there is the paradox!!! The further back in time that we go--the crummier the model!!!

Bakster, don't blow it up.  Bury it!   A future somebody (Who?) will dig it up and continue the build.

 

Can I at least smack it with a shovel before I bury it?

lol.

Live at Leeds, one of my favorite albums.  I played all those songs as one big set in one of my bands.

 It was released the same year as "Beneath the Planet of the Apes".

And that gives me an idea...

The Who theme

I've often wondered if, when Horton hears the Who if it's Wembley or Leeds . . .

So, you are saying..................... I should paint it like a Rubiks Cube? Lol.

Surprise

 

I like my idea. Heck... I might even rent a high speed camera so that I can record every nuance of its disintegration. Wouldn't that be a peach? Hehe.

Tim... if I smash it ... be sure of this one thing. I will record it for all to see. It would be my crowning achievement for this model and this thread. You can count on it.
