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!

After retrofitting a Grid Case into a Sentry Gun control terminal, the next logical step was to build a sentry gun. But before that, i began with that i searched for usable cargo pallet for a decent environment to present it. Of course the original palettes for the main corridor are almost impossible to find.

Image


By chance i came across 9 of these palettes, very similar to those used in the side corridors :

Our goal in this year to paint them properly and use them for our next events table´s Photowall....

With too much real life happening during these days, progress is slow but constantly. After cleaning the palettes i began to paint them with Hammerite "hammered metal paint" in a dark grey finish. Though i was sceptical using no primer, the paint seems to stick perfectly.

Image

I decided just to paint the surface and the upper 5cm / 2 inches, since that hammerite isnt that cheap. I think it really works for the moment:

Image

Even more when you install lighting (This was tested in an earlier stage):

Image


Last but not least i found these palettes on screen, when Hicks´squad was making their sweep finding the "Acid for Blood" holes :

I hope i can finish these until our next Drop at Comic Con Berlin in October.
