Curious devices, forbidden artifacts, mysterious creatures, and intriguing documents.
Jeff de Boer works in metals, a rare thing in prop making due to the expense and high degree of expertise in the craft. His site is well worth the tour and his props are first class. I couldn’t help but notice the nozzle of his jet pack is uncomfortably close to the seat of his trousers, yeow.Most of these rocket packs evolved from the seminal movie serial Commando Cody from the early 1950s but had more of a mood of the 1930s. I always loved the big control knob with the UP and DOWN feature. Check it out on Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commando_Cody I haven’t looked yet, but I bet YouTube has some of the serials. Gad those were cheesy!A fannish friend of mine recommended a Finnish made movie called Iron Sky about space Nazis invading the earth from the dark side of the moon. The trailer looks intriguing and is on this site http://www.ironsky.net/site/ and an article Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iron_Sky .
The costume is amazing, but I really want that door!.
