I don't mind the reddish colour your camera gave those last pics...Looks like the Nostromo is on the planet with morning coming soon over the mountains

Here is a cool pic I got today..

This is Nostromo kit #10 I sent to Bayern Germany, This guy is making a whole large size Diorama, and I will be sending him a large scale size derelict to go with this ..

This is going to be huge, and although he has a lot to finish on it...he is off to a great start!!

...99.8% finished now....

I added the top bridge radar, finished the opposite side front boom probes, painted the rear VTOL exhausts/intakes, added yet more details to the hull, and minor airbrushing around the engines. I will make 2 more tiny radar dishes for the docking module, test fit the 6 small underside hull probe antennas, ... maybe monkey around a bit more with the airbrush, but basically this thing is done... My camera batteries died, so I used my mobile phone to take the bridge details....

..And here is the second Nostromo already well under way. This one is going faster than I anticipated, mainly because I have all the reference pictures of the last build, the blueprints, and I molded and saved all my scratch-built parts from the last one. As you can tell, almost identical to the last one...

Very good work JTP; I admire you dedication: I couldn't do that type of work because of its repetitiveness (I already have much trouble with the Nostromo's landing gear...imagine four feet to detail with the same pieces).
