Ok so got me a bunch of acrylic sheets and have been wanting to do the Narc from Alien for a while now. Just scored one of the terrible Aliens jobs, yeah i know they are different models with different angles etc but i want it for comparrison. The Alien Narc will be a complete scratch and if i can nail all the donors will be accurate to the studio model. I got pretty much all the available refs out there but to start with i could use some help with the interior. so far the obvious 8 rads stick out but i haven't really been looking through any kit scans so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Yeah got the stack of kits pix from Bowers site. but theres a whole bunch more and the interior for me is going to be a *****. Turret still on . i think Johnny is too scared of boredom measuring the panels and converting them.

Think i see some M16 motor carriage parts in there. Looks like some stock plastruct square and rectangle tubes for the underlying structures.

Thanks Guy's. i didn't have the Leichter. thanks for that. Martin Bowers pix as Martyn mentioned show a few of the kits that are used on this model. The Tyrell and 8 rad are used on the exterior. The scammel is also used so i'm going through some kits today.

Re: NARCISSUS Part id help

you are also gonna want a certain Airfix kit that was never repopped because of an accident with the moulds. AND its decals. Yes...THAT one...the one all the kit collectors want.

Fortunately I have moulds and scans. :)

LOL, if id have looked at the Bower pics, id not have had to access the brain too much, it hurts to do that these days LOL.

I see lots of Tyrrell and Leichter on the underside Simon/Martyn, cut Leichter chassis' and Tyrrell bodywork.

Never looked at this model much, seeing it naked like that, wow, theres more to life than StarWars afterall eh :lol.

Exactly why I'm doing this one Lee. Had a Star Wars OD the last few years. Pretty sure the chassis on the back underside is the scammel Trailer. I've been meaning to pic up the H/craft too.

Tell me that's not an R2 foot at the front of the detail patch. Like the one in Richards K'tinga thread.

DERRRR it's R2. :p That's not the only Star Wars kit you gonna need either, LOL.

You are gonna need a lot of the staples. Two Centurions, two 1/12 Tyrells, the Scammell, a Revell Gemini, that Airfix Superfort and way more 232s than you think. A whole bunch of trucks and truck trailers, not the regular ones though.

I had the complete list from Martin, but I paid a pretty penny for it and it's embargoed. Still, I can't really stop you from having a gander at my Narcissus stash shelf next time you're over! I seem to recall he did publish it himself on his site at one point, anyway. I had a look just now in case it is still there, but couldn't find it.

In the meantime, drawings; should be a start. Crosscheck the dims yourself, don't take mine as gospel.
