    I'm curious to see what 'humans' may have. Post pics if you have them, please.

    I'm starting to get my options together for an upcoming project and am leaning towards a nice background/stunt rifle.

    There's one hanging in my Local Planet Hollywood that just taunts me.

    Need one....gots'ta have one...or a couple :angel

    May do the pistol, too. Monkey Fever has taken over. I figure wood with faux metal parts here and there for both.

    One of my favourite shirts. People know something's not right with this Che Guevara picture, but not many actually recognize why. :lol Good luck with the apes rifle. If you could get the right base gun a shell should be pretty easy to make and paint with a woodgrain effect. Although I'd probably go your way (wood base, metal bits).

    You should get lots of help from other humans because, well...

    ape may say "NO" to man, but man may not say "NO" to ape. :p

    Rylo, I have a ton of screencaps from POTA, mainly of Heston's rifle--let me know if you'd like copies of them. :)

    If you can get a M1 Carbine stock, it shouldn't be too hard to work from there. They're pretty easy to get and inexpensive. If you want, I'll sell you the one I have.

    I'm getting my Planet of the Apes tattoo finished on the 4th. I've paid a deposit and am eager to get the work finished.

    Oh' man...I should've been more specific. I've got all that.

    I was just curious to see what others have done or may have. Just seein' what's been done so far.

    Thanks

    Well, not that this is related, but here is my tattoo image. It was prepared for me by the guy that did the recent comic.

    On a side note, someone on the Apes listserv says the rifle is called the Rea Voom 88.

    It's on my arm. It goes from the wrist to just above the elbow on the back side of my left arm. I've had the outline and part of the coloring done for some time. The original tattoo artist was unable to complete it so I finally set an appointment with someone else.
