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!

Hmm nice .... :)

During the movie the Sentry Guns were painted BB. Later on (Alien War) the remaining one was repainted OD. I've seen pictures of it's current state where you can still see small areas of BB below the OD.
Also the markings on the gun (as it is now) are not the original ones you see in the movie. So it's best to check screenshots for this.
That being said the barrel shroud on the surviving sentry is a replica that shows a few differences (like the position of the cutout on the top) to the original one. From what is visible from the "sentry in a box" screenshots (thanks Moosh!), I actually believe that the bottom of the cutout is slotted to help in cooling the barrel (the MG42 is air cooled - so without air flow it will overheat quite fast).


Cheers,
Stefan

Wow thanks for that Information,do you happen to have any usable Photos of the screen used barrel shroud as all the Photos i have are from Poor quality so you can't realy see any Details,I would be verry gratefull for any help at all.

I've just looked at that photo of it in the storage Box,i have the same photo but i never noticed the slots in the barrel shraud before thanks Once again.

I'd love to!
However, the only behind the scene photos I know of are the two Willy posted some time ago.
Otherwise there are only screenshots to work from.
It's strange that there are almost no pictures/documentation about the sentry guns. Ok, they were cut from the original release, but given the amount of work that went into these (they were hydraulically actuated!), I would expect more that just two photos to exist!

Cheers,
Stefan

It is verry strange that there are basicaly no detailed Photos at all of the sentry allthough it is or was a masterpiece in my eyes.
