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!

Lots of good stuff in there. Ive been looking continuously for a 3A Steadicam vest and always seem to miss by a day to a few weeks. :( I had a build thread about how I made a look-a-like vest from an Indian vest. One thing I like about this group is having the leeway to do stuff that looks like it could have been in the movie but don't have to match exactly a screen used component. Most people at DeragonCon never notice that I don't have a 3A vest and arm, they just see the really big gun on an arm and go nuts. While I'm always looking for stuff to make it better, I would hate to have someone discouraged to build or join if they think they need to match exactly what is in this manual. :)


That's why I went to pains in the introduction to point out this is just for fun and not to be taken as a YOU MUST HAVE ALL THIS STUFF OR ELSE!!!! set in stone guide.

I wonder if someone could whip up a cover for this sort of like the Pulse Rifle manual from Derrick Baena?

It would be cool to have it look like an "in universe" manual on uniforms or somesuch. What do folks think?

After dragoncon I can spend a few hours and come-up with something. Ive been looking for things to try and draw in CorellDraw. You're thinking like an AR-670-1 "wear and appearance of uniforms", only for USCM universe?

I want to work on a more polished design for it overall.

Awesome guide.

With regards to the Lieutenant's unform, Chef can make Custom ones upon request. That's where I got mine from, see...

viewtopic.php?f=3&t=15892

First pic is me wearing an OG-507 costume which I adapted (which looks the part but not 100% screen accurate), the later pics were the custom uniform I got from Chef (which is as near as you can get to a screen accurate uniform without stealing the one Harry Harris has in his collection)

Just stumbled upon this while I did a search for patch placement for the uniform. Outstanding work and effort to both you Mantroon and Bigbisont. Now to track down some patches :)
