Hey guys, im just about ready to tackle my alien project in the new year, the only thing i'm lost on is how to do the dome on the top. Im going for the screen acurate ALIEN 3 design as seen in this pic;

I would consider vacuforming. You might be able to find the plastic already tinted too. If you cross reference some of the techniques used to make scratch built airplane canopies you should find some help from scale modelers. The dome is more complex then a canopy but it might get you were you want to be.

Vacuforming setups are relatively easy projects. YouTube it and you'll get alot of homemade setups. I've had fun with mine. I've only used white .030" Styrene.
