Thanks guys. I'll be working on this as much as I can to get this done as soon as possible. This will be based on the scene in the movie where the Colonial Marines get out of the APC before going down to the lower level where they start getting killed and Ripley takes over the APC to get them out. I have two small Alien models that are about the same scale as the APC and some of their eggs that I'll be using as well.
I'm working on the upper level of this thing. Not sure what this is called but it's what the Marines walk by when they get out of the APC. I'll be making two cylinder tanks and the only thing I could find around the house that would be the right size and shape is a paper towel roll. I used a purple straw to make some pipes, a think coat hanger for other pipes and the rest is styrene. I know it doesn't look like much right now but I'm hoping it will all come together the way I want.
Thank you Engelnicht. My skills are limited at his point but I’m having a lot of fun scratch building this. I’m using Super Sculpey for this part. I’m taking my time on this because I want to add as much detail as I can. After this part is done, I’ll be shooting everything with a coat of primer. I’ll also be making decals for the structure and the APC. The decals that came with the APC are too old and won’t work anymore.
With a weekend kitchen remodeling project out of the way, I can get back to this. I’ve finished the Sculpey sculpting, a quick bake of that and then a coat of primer on everything. Next I’ll be putting the little Aliens together.
