Unfortunatly this projet failed... The weight of the engines whas too much - and the middle section was to stressed. But i wanted to to this ship => so i started again in a more smaller scale. THe result you can check out here
very impressive and its good that you joined the lego alien franchise creation group, also you can add all of your alien creations from the alien franchise, also i wonder if you can build the full map of the nostromo of legos that would be very cool.

Wow! That's an impressive work! I appreciate a lot pneumatic systems usage! I'll be happy to see it finished, so, please page me! =)
By the way - your endurance for yor LDD-Models is incredible !
unfortunatly there was not only one reason to stopp this project...the main thing was that the middle section was crashing down by the weight of the big engines. 2.nd i don't have enough pieces. But also a big problem was where to put the fat Lady when i would finished here ;-( I only could put in some of the last pictures i took before dismantling it, if you like ;-) otherwise i could only invite you to look at my smaller Betty which i finished !
I am proficient with LDD too - I used to do CAD engineering drawings long ago so its second nature, but I prefer old school trial and error with my bricks any day! LDD is a good tool to work out design ideas if you don't want to cover the floor in bricks!
