Halcyon 1:35 Aliens APC, "Clean Deployment"

Recommended Posts

Some years back, I built a diorama with the Halcyon kit of the Dropship from Aliens, specifically I built the 'Dust off' scene from the move where the Dropship delivered the APC to the planet surface:

You can see this build here:

 

My intention since 2012 has been to build the next scene along, the initial deployment of the Marines from the APC,  using the 1:35 APC kit plus some very rare AEF Design Colonial Marine figures. Finally, the Film, Fictional and Speculative GB afforded me the opportunity to finally do this so here I am posting the results.  The inside is totally scratch built and lit by about 10 LEDs, with the batteries hidden in the base. Here are the photos:

Outstanding! :) Positively bad-bottom!

 

(Supposed to be a quote from the movie, but autocorrect corrected it... I ROFL-ed, so, I'll leave it as is :) :) )

You have produced a great APC here. I love the scratch-built interior. She looks really good. 

 

Thanks for sharing with us.

Yep, I'll third the bottom kicking comment.

I started one of those thing ..years ago.. and never quite got it to fit together.

I always liked the idea though.

I am now going to read your build thread.

 

Maybe, just maybe....
