    While researching a possible build for my dog, I came across this little detail on Jones the cats carrier from the OG Alien movie. Recognize it?

    Perhaps a comparison picture with the aforementioned thermal detonator would be more helpful, do you agree?

    The on,y strip I can image him talking about is the thumb grip strip on the Return of the Jedi thermal detonator. However if that is the case, it looks nothing like it.

    The cat box and the detonator appear to be painted the same color.

    Original TD activator strip was tank tread from a 1/48 fuman Panther G. Here is a picture of mine. Not a match to the tread on the alien box. Good observation by Mugatu though, seem to be close to the same color.
