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!

I bougt it all back then as a lot so i can't tell you i'm afraid where the arm came from,and i didn't ask i was just happy to get it all in one shot.

I only know the arm is a perfekt resin cast no bubbles,it's verry klean.

Just a small update on my shoulder lamp.
I got Everything cut and all the threaded rods fixed in place.

I used a 8mm threaded rod for the lamp arm and a 5x30mm allenscrew for the handle to fix it all in place,and its not moving.I will also be putting some small screws in from the inside throught the box into both sides of the grip just to stabelize the handle and allso a small grub screw in the small part of the light arm from underneath just to give it all more stabilitey becouse sooner or later from the weight of the lamp arm it will all start to wobble and droop.

I've got Everything temperary fitted together and it's pretty solid and nothing is moving.

I'll be painting the box next week when my new Kompressor arrives and then the wiring done and thats it i hope.

Got the wiring done on the lamp head and it's working just fine,i had it running for ten minutes and its fine but i will be running a second Kabel from the box to an extra 12v Batterie wich will be in one of the pouches on my belt.
