Re: Aliens Enviromental Suit Progress pics.

The part I've circled here in blue...


looks like the...I'm not sure what the technical term is....blower intake for a street machine/race car. It's often found on the hood.

I've seen similar parts on models my brother used to put together. And if there's parts on there already from a race car model, then it may be even more likely.

Just a shot in the dark.

The disk detail with spoked edge detail to the upper right of the pic in post #101 (behind the red ring) is half of a brake rotor from one of the F1 cars. It's amazing how many parts are suddenly becoming spottable!

So far all the parts I've spotted seem to be from the Texaco Marlboro Mclaren M23 though the Yardley Mclaren probably shares almost all the same parts.

Thanks.

So we need to get Texaco Marlboro Mclaren M23 and we should be good.
We DON'T need the Lotus 72D?

Rule No. 1 of prop building: You know you've found the right parts when the kit turns out to be rare and expensive! :lol

Steve, Richie,
Here is a pic of the hawk kit.

Some of these parts are on the left side. Mainly the rocket boosters and solar panels. The weapons pods are also on the top of the back on both sides. The x-shaped girdering is on the inside detailing to the right and under the front of the visor.

Re: Aliens Enviromental Suit Progress pics.

Hey Dropshipbob. Any thought on what hood scoop that could have come off of?

I hope to have the helmet completed for the prop party on the 28.

I am going to be working on the light until the model parts arrive.
I will keep you all posted.

Re: Aliens Enviromental Suit Progress pics.

Thanks,

I think I might have the angle to steep from front to back. Now that I have had a day to sleep on it. Does it appear to tall from top to bottom?

Thoughts?

Thanks

Re: Aliens Enviromental Suit Progress pics.

Too tall in the back? Maybe. But you have better reference material than I. ;)

As for what model that hood scoop may have come off of (if any), I couldn't tell you.
