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!

So over the festive period I finally plucked up enough courage to have a stab at painting my aluminium schotti armour that ive had knocking about the place for quite some time but never been sure what to do with or how to go about painting it!

Today i have finally finished it and I'm pretty happy with how its turned out! Its been alot of fun really. I'm not sure why i was scared to touch it after all! :roll:

Over the weekend ill gear up and get some proper pictures taken but for now I've taken a few pics of the armour by its self.

Look on eBay for small microphone windscreen foam Cups.

I turned them inside out and cut a Verry small piece of the closed end of and just using a tiny amount of soap Just slide them onto the mic,this worked great for me,and you can buy these in packets of five or ten,better to have some in reserve.

Hope that helps mate.

This is the latest pictures of my armour on my makeshift maniquin with added noble webbing and belt, chef's pouches and ab pad, genuine explorer night raider knife (extremely hard to get here in the U.K.) , sd studios grenades and a genuine edison pop gun belt tool.
Also my latest addition to my collection is my seiko pulsemeter 501A with noble strap!

Cant wait to test the costume out at my first drop this month!
