Default Nostromo/Refinery

Thought I would share my build of the Nostromo/Refinery from Alien. Platform with Nostromo attached will be be 2 feet long and 18 inches wide. I'm nearly finished with the lower section. Here is a link to some pics.

wow, that's one hell of a build up. how long has that taken to build? you have a great eye for detail, must have cost you a small fortune in bits.
very impressive and well worth looking through all the pics. thanks for sharing with us
cheers Paul

Whoa.

That looks phenomenal.

If nobody told me different I could have assumed that was the studio model.

So who's the little guy on the front?
The Konami? Scratchbuilt?

Ace!

I know we've got some champ modelers here, even the originals chime in.

That looks like a tough nut, but completely and utterly worth it if that rep you made can be kitted!

Edit: And I wouldn't put is past you!

I've DL'd your whole photobucket album.
Is there anything you CANT do?

Hi Refinery 1!
Looks Good! I remember the only thing that was a real pain - was detailing the underside of the model in situ - as it was too much of a problem to remove it from it's support stand!
Good luck with the rest of the Build!

Cheers Bill Pearson

Looks amazing Refinery 1, keep at it, I know these take a while to do. Mine's still sitting unfinished in my garage after a good year or so

See attached pic-sorry about the quality
