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!

Indeed.
I'm just about to repaint the Eaglemoss Derelict and i'm umming and ahhing as to what colour the base coat should be. I don't want to go the metallic route it appears in a lot of the shots, far preferring the tan/grey that is seen in Giger's concept art and, indeed it looks to be in some behind the scenes shots.
So, question is - has anyone painted one in this scheme and, if so, what brand and shade makes for a good basis?

I can't say I've seen one painted up like the original paintings, it's mostly been the Alien movie zinc-plate color, so it would be something good and different to see.

You might want to start by getting a color chart of some kind. I work with an interior designer and there are paint color and Pantone color charts I have access to and are very helpful in choosing shades of a particular color group.
