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!

A small detail about the VP70 - there are actually three versions of the VP70:

- the early "VP70" (no M or Z!) with the thumb rest.
- the "VP70M" with a different slide and no thumb rest
- the "VP70Z" which is identical to the VP70M except that you can't attach the stock and thus you have no way to fire in burst mode

The VP70 (without M or Z) was the one used in Aliens.

MGC produced a correct shell ejecting model of the VP 70.
The Tanio Koba airsoft version is a mix of the VP70 (slide) and the VP70M (Grip). This version actually exists in the real steel world but in VERY small numbers.

Cheers
Stefan

Somewhere I saw this Lara Croft Tomb Raider wax sculpture and she had a VP70. Some comments seemed to suggest it was a repaint but It looked like the top one.

This may be extremely simple and I’m just looking past the obvious but what about the clasp on Hicks chest armor?

I don't believe the original(s) had any writing or engraving on the pieces to provide manufacturer identification. The closest I've found (indentations on the latch and a wide ring for the lock to pass through) show up under the search for brass "'Trunk Hasp".

The 3001 lamp can be added to the 3002.
Same lamp, without the barn doors.
