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.

I hope you like it!

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.
