    Fun little one day build

    The Colonial Marines APC from Aliens, this is a resin kit and the kit itself is only about 3" long , it's brush painted with a pin wash and dry brush to bring out the detail

    Base is a simple poly filer surface with woodland scenics rocks pushed into it , I scored the surface with a scalpel to make it uneven IMG_6447.JPG IMG_6446.JPG IMG_6445.JPG IMG_6444.JPG

    One of my favourite films of all times. Great little model and build, shame they molded the top gun in the parked position on the back.

    Nice build Alan. I love all the Alien films and have watched them many times. Got a boxed set of all 4 films on dvd for £10 from Tesco last month. So my old vhs set is off to the charity shop.

    Cool kit and scale isn't evident in the pics.
    I'm more of a Blade Runner fan, (and excited about the new one), but have seen these all being set in the same universe.
    My favourite exchange was during the suit up where Bill Paxtons character says
    'Hey Vasquez, you ever been mistaken for a man?'
    And she says,
    'No, have you?'
