Ape Soldiers, Mechanised

This is what happens when a man with a Planet of the Apes obsession has too many model kits stashed everywhere.

Work in progress shot of Italeri's 1/35 scale Zundapp motorcycle and side-car, with Gorilla crew.

Tamiya's German assault troops, but hairier. This is a test paint-job pending re-painting.

Process of de-evolution. This WIP photo shows the distinctive ape tunics complete, while the heads are at different stages. The sculpting medium is a mixture of Milliput (standard yellow-grey) and Green Stuff.

The combo is nearly ready for paint. The ape on the right somehow looks a little too friendly, but I'm hoping some paint will sort that out. 
This fun project is strictly for my own amusement.  I will add more photos as the ape battle-group grows. 

Bye for now!

  2. I'm glad you like 'em. More gorillas are in the works.
