Hi everyone,
Sorry to necropost, but I wanted to share a small addition I have made to my Nostromo helmet. I got this back in 2009 and it's enjoyed a prominent place in my collection ever since. I could never swing the entire suit, but I just had to have this helmet! Very Happy

I was rereading the old thread on the RPF when I noticed something in a couple of Harry Harris's pics that someone had shared. The pics showed some white lettering on either side of the helmet. Here are the areas I'm talking about.

In the first shot of the helmet's left side, the lettering is very chipped and scratched, but it appears to read "DO NOT OPEN VENTS" as near as I can tell. The lettering is in the center left area of the picture.



On the right side, again it's very worn, but I believe that it says "VENT DIAL." I'm only about 80% sure about that, though. The lettering is in the lower right area of the picture.



I have a sheet of white rub-on lettering that I got a few years ago when I added the NOSTROMO lettering to the side of my Shawn Morgan sidearm. I decided to use the lettering to replicate these markings on the helmet. Here's how they came out. First, the left side.



Now, the right side.



It's extremely subtle. You probably wouldn't notice it from more than three feet away, but since they were on the original, I wanted to add them to mine! Thanks for looking.

After a long and tedious hunt, I've finally picked up my Kane suit.

Should have it on display by the end of the week! So excited.

Yes, yes I am!

It needed some repairs and paint work, but it's coming along nicely. Impressive in person. I had to make a new cap, shoes and base.

Should have everything finished and on display this weekend.

Been working on this beast all weekend. It needed some body work in a number of spots, paint work, and general cleanup. Here she is, finally on display.

This suit is pretty heavy, even for my beefy mannequin. I anchored it to the wall to prevent any unwanted surprises Shocked. There are a bunch of extra paint details I want to refine, but I'll take that on slowly over the long term.

Can't tell you how excited I am to get one of these. It's been a long term hunt. Now, if I could only track down that full-size vidphon...

The best repro-suit out there Cool Funny how the design team opted for such "Mining Industrial Suit" look. A beauty to have for any serious Alien collector!
