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!

The side part is from the Hasegawa 1:72 scale "Leopold" railway gun kit.

Cheers,
Stefan

Incredible!
Pictures are way better than words in this case. :wink:
Are you going to do the top cover as well?
I've been looking for ages to find some good pictures of it, but all I was able to find are blurry screenshots.

It's good to hear that you got the the citizenship.
Most of us probably can't even imagine how many things you have to sort out due to the Brexit.

Cheers,
Stefan

Hi stefan thank you for your opinion mate it's much apprieciated.

I will be doing the grill cover for the top which i will also have to Scratch build,but i don't know if it's going to be screen akkurate,so i'll just have guess becouse all i have are also the blurry Screenshots,but i don't think that should be a Problem.

Not quite finished but I'm getting there, just have to get the knob for the side and the lid finished.

I did make a mistake on the body, it's basically to high. I realised this too late to do anything about it; it was after I received the Hasegawa Leopold gun rail part that I realised this, so I had to extend the rail part which turned out quite well, my only problem now is finding the correct decals.

Does anyone here happen to have any ideas where i could find the stecil fonts for the Batterie,any help at all would be most Apprieciated.

Melissa said she would do them for me,but i need to find the korrekt Graphik or fonts first which is not easy.

There was a guy who created the text for a sentry gun project over on the Side Show collectors forum years and years ago, but I don't know how accurate it was.

The original box has some Text on it that literally says
"673 B 54-72 B -CM
MICROGRAMMA BOLD EXTENDED
EUROSTILE BOLD EXTENDED""

So I guess that's what was used (modified as stencil fonts).

Cheers,
Stefan

I can't seem to find good screenshots of the batteries to look at them so once somebody sends me some images I'll do my best to make stencils :delta:

This project is incredible by the way!

Stefan, Did they really paint the font names on them? haha that's awesome!

To my knowledge Microgramma or Eurostile have been used on Drake's T-Shirt for the last line "CETII EPSILON IV"

So i got the lid finished over the Weekend,but becouse there are basicaly no good excisting photos of the lid,i just basicaly improvised,so its probably no where near film acurate.

The paint colour is from Belton, Molotow Premium Mocca,it's the nearest thing to BB which a friend of mine found which i think works pretty well.

That would be just amazing if you do manage to find them or still have them.
