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!

Progress on the Grid laptop, need to print out the labels on glossy photo paper, finish the back panel and edit the video.

Made up a little pouch to hold my locator and printed proper labels for the Grid laptop. Might add texture paint to the Grid, make it look more realistic/retro :).

Used my laser engraver to prototype some dog tags, looks like I'll need to apply for a service number soon and not use Hudson's! Will do another batch with a more correct font and my number when I get it :).

Added a weyland yutani logo to an old laptop bag which was a perfect fit for the Grid laptop.

Made up a hack kit inspired by Hudson's. Made from the same material I've had for my other pouches. Used some thin plastic sheet to attach the items to. Velcro holds the sheet to the pouch. All items were found in the 'pile', I printed a pic of a mini keyboard and stuck that to some more plastic sheet. Will add some more hand written details to the outside.

Yay, received my spoonflower sample!

Here is a pic with it on brand new MultiCam. Sample 8"X8", photo taken indoors under fluro light. Anyone able to tell me how it looks scale and colour wise?

nice grid. There are write ups here on how to make it functional with more modern stuff, not recommended if you are uncomfortable hardware hacking. Nice setup as well.

I'll post up a pic here of my Spoonflower swatch (admittedly from years ago), next to my MAA BDUs.
Mine looks a little different to your sample ... was yours this one - https://www.spoonflower.com/en/fabric/880468-sci-fi-alien-marine-camo-by-ricraynor?

No I didn't like the look of that one. I did a trace of the pic from Harry Harris' site and took an average of the colour in each section, then played around with the overall brightness.

Having another look at pics of the camo this does look very bright and clean, but I think the pattern can always be dirtied up and faded some.

Fair call.
Would you mind linking to the design you got the swatch from please?

The sample pic and the pic before final clean up. I traced each piece onto a different layer so I could turn them on and off and adjust colours.
