The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

I don't have Pulsemeter money so I modified an old Velcro watch strap and mounted a Casio illuminator.

Hopefully passes the ten foot rule.

So further build has stalled. There is a company that does reasonably priced SPH-4s, but they won't sell to anyone outside the states, and the ones that pop up in the UK are usually too expensive for me to go to town on them with a Dremel. Well mostly a Dremel. Compatible.

So that's left me looking at these, I'm thinking with the ear widgets and right dress pieces it would pass once repainted. However it'd be a fairly major compromise.

Hivemind what do you think?





Edited, because I left my brain in bed this morning.

You could cover up a lot to make it look closer to the SH4 version.
The SH are normaly around 200 Euro btw.

Bikes only get expensive if you fly them like Dropships...



Speaking of which; how wrong would it be to dye Pringle orange?

On a scale from zero to firing 10mm AP rounds in a nuclear reactor...

I would be more worried about certain bike flying this way a taxi. ;)
Orange? Well it's personalization so do what you like.
You can al always say that after seeing your flight records
You have been allowed to to nearly anything.

I had the same idea, just never got round to doing the ear widgets. The visor cover comes off really easy for painting which is always a bonus.
