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!

Hey comrades, it’s been about a year since I sold my beloved suit due to a family crisis. Last year my brother was paralyzed from a work accident. So me living in CA and him in MI I had to sell pretty much everything including my suit with found parts. So I could move back home and take care of him. He survived the injury and is alive. But took a intense 6 months of rehab (severed spine/ traumatic brain injury)



Anyways I am working on a V2 Raider Build. I’ll start posting progress here.

If anyone has spare parts for sale lmk.

I've been trying to find a decent eagle for the bolo tie for some time now.

What do toy think of this? Close enough?

Now i need to find a accurate looking bolo tie.

Yes, it’s the one from Etsy. But I upgraded parts using a chopped up airsoft M-16.

Keep on building :-)

looks like the same incinerator I got it was in hollow sections I put a threaded bar right from end to end and bolted the lot together I also removed the resin sling loops and made some metal ones that I attached to the threaded bar to make sure they could hold a sling and not break trooping I also drilled afew holes in each section and pumped resin inside to also make it stronger and add a little weight lol

Update on my Raider V2 aluminum build. Still needs some paint touch ups on the rivets. Straps need to be fixed permanently and finish up some resin bits. Waiting on my Spat BDUS.


How’s it looking? I have a whole bunch of photos of this build step by step. But my computer broke and can’t upload them..

Also screen accurate wasn’t my main focus. Just a decent USCM build with my own twist. (RAIDER)

The kit looks amazing, very well done. Did you make the greaves? Or are they from a particular maker? Asking because I am digging them ^___^
