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!

What do you Marines use for the armor neck trim? I dislike the one that I have. Can someone point me to the right direction?

Noble has the right trim. He's done runs of trim and leg armour flaps.

At lower I purchased a window gasket seal. It was the closest thing I could find locally. I think with more digging I could have found the appropriate door seal, but I have yet to find it locally, easily.

Its easy to make yourself. Buy some dark grey leather and have one side hemmed at a shoe repair shop. Then glue to your armour with contact adhesive. Cheap and accurate, and looks far better than rubber.
