    I showed this in the very first post, but wanted to show how we ultimately displayed this piece. Since we had an AMAZING photo of Ben Foster holding our gun in nearly a perfect profile position, we had the photo printed as a poster and the screen used gun mounted over the photo of the same gun. We particularly love how the prop "breaks" the frame and comes out of the photo. Pretty happy with this one. (Sorry for the reflections on the poster)

    That is really cool Art! Love how you did the display, very simple and yet original at the same time.

    Thanks. We really weren't sure if it would actually look good until we had it done. I was really worried that it would just be one of those things that SEEMED like a good idea but in reality, fell flat. But I have to say, sitting here in the room, it looks good.

    How did you mount the rifle on top of the glass, I am sure it is obvious but I can't see any mountings.

    I've never seen these up for offer anywhere but I managed to pick one up in LA at the weekend . It's a screen used gold bar from the 2003 remake of The italian Job with Mark Wahlberg. The bar is approximately 10" long and made up of a copper resin compound with a gold plated outer skin. Feels very real and looks far better up close so I've put together a custom graphic display base to show case it.

    That is cool. The Balinese dancing girl if I recall.

    My latest original prop is currently on the back of the FedEx truck awaiting delivery

    Well, it's arrived. A very, very long, thin package. Anyone care to wager a guess ?

    It's a spear from a 300 / Troy movie?

    It's from Troy, when Achilles storms the Trojan beach-head with the Myrmidons. It's almost 8 feet long and has a retractable spearhead that collapses and slides back inside the spear shaft each time a Trojan was 'dispatched'

    First, I replaced the cardboard backer for the frame with a sturdy but thin piece of mdf. Next we laid the prop over the poster and marked to places on the plexi; one just in front of the mag well (the point that holds the weight of the prop) and one just above the buffer tube (to keep the prop at the right angle. From there, we drilled holes through the plex, through the poster and through the new backer board. We put in long screws that had very large, flat heads that were colored a blackened brass, that tends to fade into the gun and the photo. The gun goes in between them and then rotates clockwise between them until it is locked in place by gravity and its own weight. It comes off in seconds, but would never fall off.

    I was really nervous about screwing the mounting up and was quite pleased when it worked beautifully, just as planned. That is a rare thing. If I get a chance, I'll take a photo in the studio, so you can see it better.

    Thanks guys. The spear also has some very fine (what looks like brass) tubing running down the either side of the shaft to carry the 'blood' when someone get's impaled. It's sunk just beneath the surface of the spear so it's barely visible and there are two small holes at the end of the shaft were the blade is. It's a very nifty design.

    I picked up these Helboy 1 & 2 production dental prosthetics recently and thought I'd throw them all into one display. The level of detailing, especially the Doug Jones Angel of Death teeth, shows you what a true art form creating these really is!

    That's genius, and one of the coolest prop displays I've seen, it looks like a window into the film!
