Hi there!

I am a British fan/collector of Planet of the apes and have many original props/costumes from the series - I recently had my Icarus model built and painted by one of the uks top modellers to the sum of $600 in total.

The ship is encased for prosperity and looks fantastic you have to see it for real to take in all the details including the re-entry burns etc.

Enjoy the pictures and please feel free to use them on your great site!

Best wishes.
