    I know of the halcyon model, but is there a larger kit available?

    I think at one time there was a few copy's of the A2 version floating around supposedly pulled off the original.

    There have been threads on possible SS kits but I've never seen one produced yet.

    golden armor makes a kit..but from the photos there seams to be warping or sinking going on.

    Narcissus Studio Scale - DreamScheme Studios

    has any one here built one of these? what do you think?

    STAY AWAY from the GE kit. It is a recast of the model made by Paul Francis off of the original Aliens prop.

    It is cast in that weird, crappy paper-machie (sp) resin with TONS of shrinkage and warpage and muddy details (we discussed GE extensively in another thread here...do a search.)

    I have one of the PF build-ups and there are a lot of raised details with under-cuts that GE just molded into the surface.

    AWFUL kit!!!!

    I bought a GE Proteus last year.... bad buy. More than three months' waiting and when it arrived it was distorted, heavy with flash, crude and inaccurate. I won't go there again, despite some tempting subjects.:sick

    I bought the Crows Nest Proteus when it came out... dream kit, excellent work from Drew Huffman.:love

    I'm gonna tackle the studio scale model later this year. Check out Martin Bowers site. He built the original. Some good refs and a build thread of his second one.
