The Planet Mongo Videotron

Via Lost in Schlock comes this amazingly creative, ultra-low budget Flash Gordon inspired wall prop from Dave Lowe.

Almost everything that went into the making of this prop was junk lying around the house, but you can see for yourself that from anything more than a foot or two away it looks phenomenal. The difference between great low-budget props like this and the "steamjunk" stuff I hate so much is in the creativity and attention to detail of the creator. Slapping things together is a recipe for failure, but if you take the time to plan your work and utilize your available materials to the best of your ability there's no reason the result shouldn't look at least this good.
