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!

-Have you been researching a 'build' and found one particular thread of great use?!

-Have you been in the middle of a 'build' and been unsure of something but found a thread that cleared everything up for you?!

-Has a particular thread inspired you to give a 'build' a try, even though it never previously occurred to you!?!?

If so, let us know!

Those are the kind of threads I want to showcase in the archives as Fan-Made build "All Stars". Weapons, Gear, uniforms, set pieces, and anything related to recreation of our beloved universe are all good! If you believe a thread went above and beyond in informing the community on 'how it is done', please list your nomination by including the link (copy paste the url) below!


*Nominated threads should really include the following:
-Pictures that WORK!!! (direct site uploads much preferred)
-'Before', 'progress', and 'final' images (Not after 'brag' threads simply showing off final products. The goal is "Teach" threads). The more info on 'how to' the better.
-If images don't work in the thread, but the 'step-by-step' instructions are stellar, then it still may be valuable. Pass it on.

Disclaimers:
-Threads themselves are unlikely to be 'archived'. A general 'all star' thread with the links to actual threads is what will be archived, so rest assured your thread will not be 'locked' (as all archives are). You will be free to update and answer questions that might result from your thread being featured.
-Not all nominations will be featured/archived. Threads must bring unique info for consideration. No offense.
-If/when two threads covering the exact same topic with exact same info are compared, the earlier one will get the nod. No offense.
-'self' nominations (your own thread) are welcome, but keep in mind the above disclaimers! No offense!!!



Don't be shy now. Who inspired you? Post it!

Not sure if it qualifies but the Colony Map thread has a huge amount of research in it.
