40 years since I crouched down in my Cinema seat thinking "Dont touch the bloody thing you Idiot" I  can add Kane to my Alien collection,the head is a replacement with a better likeness ,scale is listed as 1/9th.

That is awesome, the lighting really adds to the whole effect. What kit is this, if it is as kit?

Great kit, great lighting and great paintwork too :clap2::clap2:

This is a real tribute to your build and painting skills...

 

Can it really be forty years since the film was released? It's difficult to believe. I think it's still the best representation of alien life-forms ever commited to film. Someone I know used to have HR Giger occasionally visit his model-shop, many years ago. He said HR was a tad "eccentric", to say the least. It's a real shame the artist is no longer with us. He was a great talent. 

 

Thanks for sharing with us.

Love it, all the textures and finishes are so rich. I'd love to see a pic of your collection all together in one place, it's very far-reaching.

 

Cheers,

NB: If anyone's thinking of building the kit there's a killer reference gallery on RPF:

 

https://www.therpf.com/forums/media/categories/prop-store.428/

70-odd high res sharp well lit photographs of the screen-used suit belonging to the Propstore in London.

There are some zoomed-out pics (with warm colour cast) and notes on the Propstore's site as well.

NB: The backpack and wrist thingies are reproductions. IMO the painting on the backpack looks pretty ropey, I assume it should be similar in style to the other "bronze" parts.

 

HTH,

 

Will
