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'm back. If you'll have me.

I havent really prepared to post about whats been going on but I still think based on whats been happening in my life and the positive direction things are going I need to let everyone know I'm not out of it... not by a long shot.

I'll forgo the sob story in lieu of just acknowledging that family and personal health issues had interfered with my ability to be a productive member of the Legacy and that I'm aware that there are some folks still salty with me for leaving them hanging.

The good news is that I have re established my business and am working towards filling overdue orders and once again being in good standing.
My wife is now my Business manager and is working full time for/with me to get the business re established and to make sense of the back orders I have left to take care of. Shes gotten file folders for every one of my customers and has developed a workflow board to keep my productivity flow going in a more coherent manner.

With a good friends help I've gotten a new shop space. It's easily three times the size of my old shop, and decidedly cleaner and more comfortable.
I have a large shop space, a store room directly off that space and two proper offices, One for my wife and one for myself and the kid. Still not sure how Se got her own big office and I have to share one with the kid but there you go.
We have a Break room and a loading dock with a pavement to dock height lift.
I'm still building benches and cabinets and plan to make work stations to accommodate my main prop interests individually so there will be no more clearing of benches to start other projects. I'm putting everything on casters so I can adjust the space as needed. After a while I'm sure it will evolve into some kind of final form, but its early days still.
I'm working on getting a Mill and a lathe and a TIG welder so I can be more self sufficient and wont have to go off site to do machine work. That will be a great day when that happens.

Theres a lot more to share and a lot more will develop...

Here's some pix...
