I think you are right John, there is a lot of symmetry on it, I can just barely see the back side in the reference I have. I may see If I can contact someone who was in the film, I do have "Montones" contact info, I wonder if he would have some shots or memorabilia?

Any one here happen to have a decent image of the rear of the shuttle? I am referring to the side opposite of the one that has the downward looking radar dish. Any help would be appreciated!


Look at page 2 / first post in this thread...

That is a great picture. I am running it through a photoshop program (the gimp) and comparing it to some grabs off of the film. I am just making sure the proportion is not squished or anything. The cross section is critical here...

FenGiddel86, glad to see you liked the comparison.. Would really want to see a scale comparison sketch of the 2 ships side to side one of these days !

...

Fred


Good grief! you guys are killing me! If I ever finish my Nostromo I guess I know what my next sketchup model will be!

Another awesome ship.

Does anyone know what the "official" dimensions were for this ship?

I always imagined that the thing descended to the cargo off-load area seen in the film where the bays we see on the shuttle's flanks would be laterally unloaded/loaded. With a ship this big, cranes and forklifts would take an eternity.


It makes sense what you say here !

Cool

My theory is that the shuttle could "unload itself" like a Skycrane, see what I mean ? Since the shuttle was designed like an actual Skycrane helicopter (a huge cargo area under a craft supplied with heavy engine(s) and four "cardinal landing gears"), it would be logical for it to have a similar way to upload / unload itself...

Fred



BTW, I took the photos of the Skycrane here : http://www.primeportal.net/hangar/bill_spidle3/ch-54a_68-18437/


Loved the SkyCrane, and this Shuttle. Looking at the photos though I doubt it could separate. The Crane and Outland's shuttle have inspired several models of my own including these...

The guys at www.fantastic-plastic.com are currently working on a model kit of the Con-AM 27 shuttle that promises to be awesome !

For those interested you can contact them via email or their Facebook and ask to be put on their interest list... (price should be around 150$)

I definitely understand your point JB but from what I saw the scale of this one will be very close to the Halcyon Nostromo released years ago... Could be interesting to put them side to side for comparison once built !
