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!

OK I gotta know.

After another thread led to an interview from Harry and a prop builder from the film in "Sci-Fi and Fantasy Modeller Magazine" I started poking around. I found this.

I searched this forum and found no combo of the magazine and 1/6th APC radio controlled build in my searches. Is this article about the Chris "FNG" Chulamanis build seen here?
viewtopic.php?f=9&t=16645

Anyone have any info on this? I am now hunting for the magazine (at a reasonable price!)

Off the top of my head yes I think that the APC is the one Chris/FNG made from a copy of the original blueprints that I have in the collection. I have the issue somewhere but it may be in storage. I'll try and dig it out unless someone beats me to it.

Yes FNGs old warhorse RC APC.

As your looking for that Issue above (Got it and a Great issue too).
Scifi Modeller used to be a normal Monthly mag too. Also waay back they did one or two covers of Chris's APC and his 1/6th Figures too (as he sold his Rifle man/Smartgunner kits).

I will see if I can dig the old issues out and let you know which Numbers you need.

Still have Not found the smaller Older issues pre The one in the first post. I Am still looking.

However I Can 100% verify that the Above (1st post) Book/mag IS about Chris "FNG" and His APC build (10 pages).

Actually had a re-read this morning and Great to see Chris's Wit again at play. Plus flying the flag for Here ALB and the UKCM & USCM with mentions inc personal one for Harry (for the large Plans). Plus Board Character Quotes from Kevin et al.

Weird....I just ran across the Motion Detector I bought from Chris back in the day......

I guess he is letting us know that every meal is a banquet!
