obviously most of the weapons are at the least a bit oversized. especially the pulse rifles. but i was going for the shape they have in the films and im very happy with the final shape
I'm a fan of the original "Alien" and "Aliens" sequel as well (not quite as much a fan of the ones after that). I love the work you've done on all your Alien dioramas. They are so detailed and exactly capture the feel of the movies. I really loved all the equipment in the 2nd movie so this is one of my favorites of the ones you've done. Nice job on the actual Alien too!
Thats great work there Simon. You should make the scene when the aliens are rampaging towards the base, but the machine gun turrets are destroying them as Ripley and the other MArines watch the ammmo quantity go down. This i think was only in the directors cut version.
btw what should be my next alien moc
