    I'm really pleased with this, it has the look I was trying to capture, correct humbrol paints, weathered with grate polish. I've been wanting to do this costume for years, I can remember talking to Graham Campbell at the Scottish Memorabillia years ago about this, having seen just his box of Pulse rifle grenades made by Tommin.

    Back showing weathering and the grate polish. I wanted it look like just after the bugstomper crashed in front of Hicks.

    Improved webbing pouches which I remade myself with foam like the originals.

    Now for the photos of the complete costume taken at my place of work.

    The Foundary part of my work place has some tall corrigated type buildings, kinda Weyland Industries looking.

    Someone is working on the shotgun holster for me and I'm still fading the BDUs like the originals were.

    WATCH OUT XENOS.

    Thanks for looking

    They are from Military at Arms, they are the correct pattern.
