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 am assuming it would have been Brown Bess... I need to redo my box... is someone selling these in the U.K. (the decals) or do I buy from MOOSH?

Moosh - happy to order from you - are you selling these in the U.K.? The grenade stickers? It is someone else doing the U.K.?

Is the box Brown Bess?

Yes it is, nearest equivalent is ALCLAD II Mil-Spec British Brown Bess, which is damn near identical to the Humbrol BB.

Hey everybody.

Bumping this thread because I finally got around to using the excellent lettering set that Moosh made. I highly recommend them to anyone.

I did a quick 10 min video on the grenade box in general. I touch on 3 diff base boxes and of course finish them off with Moosh's product. Hit her up!

The video is great Bigbisont, and resulted in me ordering a multi pack of boxes (I could only find them in a five pack). I will probably throw the spares up on the PX for anyone who wants to make a replica.

Great video (especially the cursing at the end :lol: )!
Must immediately check all reference whether the gauge of the screen-used 870 has been confirmed as 12ga., I never even thought about 20ga.
Even if the 870 was 12ga., what's to stop the prop masters from using a 20ga. box with smaller grenades? Noone would ever notice...

Cheers!
