    A L I E N Narcissus

    Thank you Peter! Being so close to the finish it's tempting to rush just to get it done, but I keep reminding myself that after putting the effort in up to this point, I'd be disappointed with myself if I didn't stay on course until the very end. Thanks for following along - it's the comments...

    A L I E N Narcissus

    Progress! I have been setting out all of the markings scattered around the underside of the ship (mainly on the front), and matching them to the reference images. The underside is now pretty much done and is a good match to the original when overlayed. As a side note, I noticed that these...

    Thank you very much! Having a short break, but I'm hoping to get back to the ship soon to finalise the weathering ready for the decals.

    What a great post - thank you so much for the kind words. It's definitely been a challenging build, and to be honest I was waiting for just those things you mentioned too! I purposely spent an extensive amount of time on the digital model in an effort to make sure that didn't happen, and for the...

    The top of the ship is done and the weathering is now complete! The acrylic wash adds an extra bit of contrast that really brings out the details in the kit parts. I'm very pleased with the way it has turned out. Next up is mapping the locations and adding the pencil and pen marks that...

    Thanks Polygonix! The weathering is now complete on the underside of the ship. I really like using the graphite. It allows for incredibly subtle results, is easy to apply and forgiving if you make a mistake. It's only drawback is that you can't achieve a deep dark application. For this reaon I...

    Thanks to a kind follower of the build, I now have some screenshots of the Narcissus from the new UHD 4K release of Alien! Unfortunately, although they look great, they just don't offer any additional detail on the ship that I had hoped they might (including on the decals). So with that, I will...

    Thanks Stevei! - it's about as far from a rushed build as you can get! :D I wish I did - it would have made the build sooo much easier :)

    Thank you very much. Yep, it's just some cheap perspex,.plasticard with model kit parts glued on top :) As the saying goes - it is so much more than the sum of all the parts! Enjoy seeing it (again) on the big screen - I'm very jealous!

    Work continues on the weathering to the underside of the ship. The front section is mostly done now with just the centre band and rear to finish. All the weathering has been done using graphite to this point, but I may use some black acrylic on the darkest parts for some extra contrast...
