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!

THORN-EMI Electronics also for the various FERGUSON reject mouldings and complete FERGUSON televisions in the colony interiors.

Would love to know more about WES CONTAINERS, "BOC" and OMEGA specifically

Peter Aston’s company, listed in some production paperwork I have as 'Model Effects Ltd' made the fibreglass model Dropship shells that were then turned over to the model unit for detailing.

Wes containers could have provided either set dressing containers or some of the containers used to make up the miniature colony complex.

And welding supplies! No doubt they provided the TIG torches and machines used in the hand welders and the welding effects.

In the paperwork I mentioned in my post above, 'Effects Associates' are listed under 'Mechanical Effects'. 'Karamya Components' are listed in the 'Model Shop Supplies' section.

Are BAPTY / Simon Atherton mentioned? What about Mo Gomm (shrouds)?

Years ago, I did some research on "WES CONTAINERS" and I am 97% sure it lead to the floor pallets.

I assume they were responsible for much of the plastics, aside from the reject television/PC cabinet mouldings. There were a lot of plastic barrels, sorting trays, tubs, pallet containers and lids that made up the colony interiors. I'd love to find their contact info if they're still around/rebranded
