    Great pictures, Richie.

    In picture 13, is there a way to get a more focused picture of that piece? It looks like there may be some kind of ID tag or something on the bottom of that piece and it's been driving us nuts as to what it may be.

    And the long probe thing sticking out the front (the CRT shield), are there any numbers or manufacturer's mark on that, as well?

    Thanks,
    Fred

    I have a couple more of tehse at home. Itw as taking forever to get these uploaded. I know I do have one that is much clearer. I will post asap.

    The long probe out the front. Youre refering to the rod that then tapers to a cone shape at the front? This is a wooden dowel. You can see the wood grain on the front. The cone appeared to be aluminum and there were no visible no.s that I could see. There was also black pinstripe tape running the length of it as well as around it in places.


    The cannister at the front appears alss to be some sort of gauge or speedometer like housing. I will see about getting a good pic posted. It was tough getting the lighting right underneath it when photographing it.

    Any and all help is greatly appreciated, Richie .

    It does indeed look like the shoved a wood dowel down the CRT shield, most likely for support purposes. But if you say there are no numbers anywhere on the piece, we're no worse off than we were before .

    Looking forward to pics of the speedo canister

    That's a Vauxhall car ignition key.

    Speedo seems to have lettering CH 1 thru 4?

    This is cool... Not that we need proof, but I was going through some behind-the-scenes photos from Alien, and I found the first picture below. It shows two motion trackers sitting on a table on the set of the ship. The one with the egg tray facing us is clearly the one Burns had on display. There's a few scratches in the paint that match up perfectly...

    Also note, the other tracker has a hole in the end of the 'tracking tube'... I don't have a shot of the end of the other one, so I can't say if it was like that at the time of filming.

    Also, a closer shot of the other side of the non-Burns tracker. You can see writing on the side of the 'tracking tube', and there's at least one piece of tubing missing from his which you can see here... The writing says:
    ELECTRO MAG FIELD TRACE
    And the detailing on the tube looks like pieces of black tape...

    With all the renewed interest in the original Alien, I have to rewatch it again.
