Offering 2 foot long PVC model kits of the Nostromo. The kits are molded in Blue, over 150 parts, brass tubing for the landing struts, and adding antennas. The model weighs over 10 pounds when completed. I am working on one right now, but my progress is slow, A professional model builder is almost finished with one, I will post his pics as soon as Its ready.
The kit is for the serious builder, and uses brass and vinyl to form massive surface detail. I make these individually one at a time, no runs or anything like that. They use 2 gallons of resin, and take me about a week to make.
if interested in this kit, contact me. I will provide the building progress photos, advice, and help in any way. The kit includes instructions, and spiral bound laser-printed reference book.

Awesome piece and great work you have done on it. I have no space for this one, or time to build it, but it is certainly one of my favorite space ships of time.

I love it and can't wait to see more progress on your build.

Thanks Andy!

I will be posting a series of build pictures soon from the very beginning, and continued progress on mine.. I think Mike will be done with his sooner.
There are also Nostromos in Louisiana, Nebraska, England, Denmark and Greece now.. So there will be some cool pics in the next few months of others kits.

I hope you don't give up on this one; I've posted elsewhere that I am working on a fan edit of ALIEN where I may be enhancing some of the FX work, and this model could work quite nicely for some Nostromo shots I want to replace.

Please give us a head's up on the progress if you can.
