    Hi Mike!

    Hm... I can only find the leather jacket that Parker wears, in the film... is this a prototype? Fanmade? Unused? I'm blind and don't see it?

    Looks cool in any case.

    Only these... the top is available light, the bottom is flash.

    The colors in the flash pic get contaminated towards the bottom I think. Use judgement in interpreting the colors.

    So for instance I think the knitted stuff at the wrists and waist is probably green, not brown.






    This jacket, or another like it, is on display at the Seattle Science Fiction Experience Museum.

    Was looking through this thread getting some info and just had to bump it, it's sooo goooooood!

    In other news, the smokes pictured in post 47 and earlier, does the package say "Balaji"? If so, could they have taken the first name of the actor who played the Alien and used that for the brand?

    Somehow, I missed this thread until right now.

    But I'm OK with that, because I got to look through so much cool stuff all at once!!

    I had seen the blasters before, but low and behold, they are pictured here on a table in some kind of holster.

    AWESOME.

    (And I sure feel stupid to make such a comment on a prop-board, but it just had to be said)

    I don't know if this has been posted yet but the jackt used is a RAF MKIII flight jacket. They added pressure suit bits to dress it up. Dallas had the pockets coved as were Kanes does not. I don't have a picture here right now to post but I'm sure someone can.
    Thanks

    I couldn't any pictures of Mk2 jackets. Some of the Mk3 ones look close, though I didn't study them closeley. There are a bunch of those on Ebay UK

    MIG High Altitude 'G' Suit Lists at $29.95, but the latest catalog shows $19.95 if anyone wants to try and convert one.

    That's a REALLY good price. I paid over $100 for one a few years back.

    Um, I'm sure it must be super hard to find 'em, but anyone know where to look for one of those RAF MKIII flight jackets?

    Hi - I'm new to the forum. It was this topic that brought me here in fact, hence the bump. Maybe this thread should be moved to Costuming?

    There seem to be plenty on eBay (in the UK) although they all seem to be varying shades of green. I suppose they must have dyed them.

    I can reveal that the pressure suits used are US Air Force G-4B combined flying and anti-g suits. Here's a post I had on the flyingclothing Yahoo group:

    "It looks as if the two panels on the front of Dallas' (Tom Skerritt) jacket were taken from old US Air Force G-4B combined flying and anti-g suits. They come from the small of the back and you would need two to make up a jacket like Dallas'. The lacings on his arms could be taken from a VVK-6 suit

    Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) is wearing a G-4B slightly too large for her, tightened in the waist area so that the top is hanging loosely around her ... (oops, almost got carried away in adjectives here) ...body.

    The G-4B is a very rare suit and it is priced accordingly. The last one on eBay sold for $410 (see the link below). That is the normal price level for a good quality suit so it would take $1200+ to replicate Dallas' jacket and Ripley's suit.

    Lambert's vest appears to be made from the upper part of a G-4B as well, so there's another $400 gone unless it could be made from the leftovers of one of the two suits that sacrificed its back lacings for Dallas' jacket.

    Brett's jacket could be made from a VVK-6 suit but I am less sure about this ID.

    Here are two links for the G-4B auction on eBay:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=150252537364
    and for a VVK-6 page on the Red pilot website.
    http://www.redpilot.com/museum/suits/vkk/vkk-6m.html

    Cheers,
    Bluelight"

    He mistypes VKK as VVK, but otherwise seems accurate. It's a shame these suits are so rare. If anyone has any of these suits or their back panels, I'd be interested. I've discovered that the same suit seems to have been made for the European market as an EFA-10 or EFA Type 10 (http://cgi.ebay.fr/Combinaison-ANTI-...QQcmdZViewItem)

    These are probably no less rare. Ah well - VKKs are easy enough to get at least.

    Just bumping this (because I was so pleased to have finally identified the g-suit) and repeating my request to have it moved to costuming.
