Halcyon 1/9 scale Alien 3

This is the dog or bull Alien depending on which movie you prefer designed by H R Giger the serialist artist

Brush painted in humbrol and revell Acrylic

Not a bad kit apart from the head I really struggled with that as you can see AA5AC1B2-5169-4E2E-9DCC-0338F824EC0F.jpeg A6C4CEB6-5913-46C5-8F20-80646E4AC9C7.jpeg 490CCC34-352B-49C9-B5FC-4345C3DB2834.jpeg D6E71D80-DC84-459D-BE44-9E3498994296.jpeg 786E4F6D-262E-45B5-990B-F8A07D0055B8.jpeg

That looks great. watched the 1st Alien film from behind a pillow many moons ago. Is the top of his/her/its head a helmet with a visor ?

Cheers Steve , the top of the head was opaque but it was part of the head , it was a difficult piece to get on so it looked like it was part of the head so I painted it to look a bit more natural but that in itself didn’t really work but it was the best I could do

The head was a nightmare to put together

It's just I have seen some images with a solid head and then others, as you say, opaque. Doesn' look easy to build. Either way it's a cracking job

Looks really good Alan. I'm a big fan of the films. But I haven't tried building a Zenomorph yet. Don't think I could do it justice.

Steve the kit largely goes together well for a half and half figure kit it’s just the head that is the biggest problem , I had tape and clamps on it to get it together and it didn’t work and the opaque cover was really difficult to line up , if I had sat and thought about it more i could have done it better but I just got a fed up lol

Sure you could this is just washes and dry brushing , the mottling effect is just a wash over the base colour then a dry brush of desert tan to create some stripes , I based this one on the colour of the puppet they made for the movie but you could use darker browns so it looked like it did on screen to get the same effect

Excellent work Alan, i love the depth you've given to the colour of him,

i did this kit about 15 years ago....it's probably the only remaining build i have from my earlier forays into modelling.
