  1. Happy New year all,Hope you had a good Christmas,my astonishingly wonderful wife got me this beauty. The presentation and casting are top notch. quality bit of kit Goes together straight out of the box The Semi-Transparent alien egg is a nice touch The only real drawback is that John Hurts estate didnt OK his likeness,but with a bit of lighting I think it will look OK.
  2. Hi all, this is the final reveal for the Alien Space Jockey diorama. As I previously mentioned in the work in progress topic, in order to give the model a sense of scale, I decided to add the background as it was depicted in the movie. I tried my hand at mold making and resin casting and this was my first attempt at using these products. I'm pretty happy with how it came out, however my only advice to anybody trying to do anything similar is that you seem to need twice as much mold making silicone than you actually think you require. In order to get a nice solid mold, plenty of the silicone is required to pour into your donar part, otherwise you run the risk of distorting the casting. Also, I treated myself to a new camera so that I could hopefully improve my photography in the future to enhance my model builds. Hope you enjoy the photos. My next project is the 1/9 Dragon Man of Steel Superman & 1/8 Moebius Wonder Woman build which I hope to start working on next week. Finally, you can see the work in progress of my build in the link below.
  3. Hi guys, not built a vinyl kit for a while so I decided I would have a go at this old Halcyon kit. I am planning on building the kit into a cave scene diorama as it looked in the movie and I hope to add lighting to the figures helmets. The plan is to try and capture the creepy classic Alien scene.
  4. Barsom Ripley bust,about 5 ins high,Nice little fun project,really enjoyed it. As it came.
  5. 20+ Inches of chestbursting,Head smashing Monster fun! Neca mega figure repaint. Cheers Andy build thread here
  6. I was aware that Neca had released these huge quarter scale figues,(they also do a predator ) and have seen them in a few specialist shops but the £100.00 plus cost,and toy like nature always put me off,However i was having a look on amazon and saw that they had heavily discounted this fiqure due to packaging damage (its the transluscent suit concept figure) so I took a punt. On opening the box its clear just how big the fiqure is,(Just shy of 2 feet) and suprisingly heavy as well,it stands well unaided and looks the part,The plan is to pose,glue ,fill and re-paint,make a display base,and bore you all silly with more Alien based shenanigans Planning on leaving the tendons and mouth parts clear(ish) when I re-paint Cheers Andy
  7. Halcyon Vinyl kits from the early 90's May not be SFW Worst Modelling day..............................................Ever Its a boy!
  8. Not the prettiest Ship in the Galaxy,but one of the most iconic,The Halcyon vinyl and injected plastic Nostromo. Been a bit of a chore,but really happy to have it in the collection. Cheers Andy
  9. A recent "Grail" kit that I have finally managed to get my grubby hands on,Its the 1992 Halcyon Nostromo vinyl and I.M plastic kit,(a bit of a weird combination) The Box art The main body parts,its a fair size Other vinyl bits and pieces Injection parts,mainly landing gear and engine parts And the instruction sheet.
  10. Before i hunker down on the Nostromo I've just had time to finish of my latest action figure re-paint,the base is scratch built from plastic card,air drying clay and those letters you get for old style office message boards The figure is the the "Jumpsuit Ripley from Alien and came complete with that darn cat! Figure straight from the box Base constructed and primed for paint. The completed figure I've just about done all the Ripley figures now,Ripley 8 from "Alien Resurrection" is due next year!
  11. Due to the recent "Photobucket outrage" I kept myself busy with another(Sorry) Neca figure re-paint project,all figures base coated,glued and filled before a re-paint,Base and chair all home made,Was trying to replicate the scene at the end of the film when Ripley blows the Alien out into space. Cheers Andy
  12. Cinemachines Derelict ship,about 16cm long,came in just a metallic finish in one piece with a display stand,This is a design that,to my knowledge,has never been produced by a licensed kit company and was therefore a gap in my Aliens collection,The base is a scratch built affair and the ship was repainted and various inks and washes added. A bit of photoshoppery In flight Crashed Cheers for looking Andy ,
  13. Neca figure,approx 7 ins with scratch built base,Been a bit of a chore this one,but reasonably pleased with the end result. On to pastures new....ish Cheers Andy
  14. Just for a change,I thought I'd do an Alien Diorama I'm one of the weirdos that actually likes Alien 3,especially the "assembly cut" which fills some major plot holes. Using,yet again, another Neca figure,I've glued and filled the leg joins and seams,but have yet to decide on the final pose. The plan is to build a platform for Ripley to be standing on,with her about to release the water that hits the creature after it is covered in molten lead,with the chain coming from the overhead column . Its early days,So it could all change,or go pear shaped. Cheers Andy
  15. I think ths was a LINDBERG kit. This is the alien from first Independence Day movie. Injection moulded polystyrene, here painted with enamels, all done by brush here. Model is quite delicate to make, and needs support untlil the glue sets. (used poly glue) as the painting was done by brush, it looks a bit crude, but the overall effect isn't too bad. Tentacles flow on the the stand and link up with moulded tentacles there, the join is quite concealed by the mould technique. About 7in tall. I have found an IDS alien spacecraft fighter, which I partially did a while back, completed the assembly, just needs painting. again I think LINDBERG Injection moulded polystyrene. Now out of production I think.
  16. This is fairly old stuff, but you might find it interesting, avalible in the 1990's from HALCYON. Here is the remaining picture of the shuttle Narcissus kit, This was the HALCYON kit to about 1/72. Injection moulded, I brush painted it matt very light blue-grey and stuck the transfers on about, um 20 years ago, If you can find this kit, it is very good quality I painted the transparencies gloss black on the inside rather than bother with internal detai,l (the movie internals do not really fit inside). HALCYON did a vinyl NOSTOMO to a huge 1/400 or so, as well as a number of Aliens, in various finishes . In the loft somewhere. Photographed on its stand against a felt background, then photoshoped in some stars. 2 stops under exposed. This is the original HALCYON vinyl ALIEN. I superglued it together and added a load of spurious detail to hide the joins, (Milliput), then glopped lots of acrylics on it. The tail has a metal rod so it can be posed in place, as can the arms. which rotate on the shoulders. A very expenive model, and accurate to the movie: thinking of stripping off the acrylic and re-painting, as I can now do a better job: I think I just smeared the paint on. it should have been blue-ish. Skull cover was transparent vinyl, which is not glued on. I added globes to the skull eye sockets, though you never see them in the movie. Model is about 14 in high and stands on the tail without a stand Below is the injection-moulded polystyrene ALIEN , about 9in high form HALCYON. , was supplied with an egg and stand, but I didn't think much of that so I made it self-supporting. Colour is adjusted to look bluish, these could be re-painted to update to a better quality. Note Vinyl green alien has two thumbs, six fingers in total, IP alien has five fingers. all ALIEN figure vary in details. but I think the HALCYON Vinyl one is the most accurate.
  17. Alien Queen.on the prowl "What a large cranium" Battle is joined Cheers! Andy
  18. These are two recent completed builds that I previously posted, however now that they are on the shelf together I decided to do an Alien vs Predator photo shoot just for fun. You can see my finished Halcyon Alien 3 build here and you can see my finished Billiken Predator build here.
  19. I bought this kit off eBay last year however I only decided to build it a few weeks ago. It's a nice little kit, lots of seams to tidy up especially around the neck area but plenty of crisp detail for a relatively old kit from the 80's. I had a plan of doing my own style of paint for the skin tones using an automotive custom paint as can be seen from the pictures. I used an Alclad black gloss base coat followed by the pearlescent white paint and then I put a candy fools gold followed by a candy red and then a candy blue, as can be seen from the pictures it gives a quite unusual skin tone effect that mimics an amphibious type of skin tone. I wasn't happy with the look of the tail so I adjusted it to look as if the creature was swinging it back ready to sweep its prey of its feet, this gave it a better look than the original which was just straight out the back. I am very happy with the look of my custom paint job on the beasties skin but I also wanted to retain the original dark on screen look without overdoing the new paint scheme. I think I struck a pretty good balance, don't look at the pictures in the dark LOL!
  20. Round 2 have posted a pic of the digi-sculpt for the new kit of Kane from Alien. http://www.collectormodel.com/round2-models/1994-polar-lights-alien-eo-kane-teaser/ Looks like they're going with resin or vinyl because the detail level they want is too much for injected tooling. Paul Harrison
