As soon as I saw that bridge I thought about the German movie "Das Boot"
Claustrophobic as hell; love it right away Cool

BRLLIANT!!!! Looks like black and white production photos of the set!!! Is there anywhere on the web where we can find higher resolution images of your work on this? I hope you don't mind if I use some of your work as a guide in creating mine. Just fantastic work!!!

Looks excellent, Nice detailing too.

Glad you kept the colour to a minimum. Works really well.

Thank you guys...
Colin, the paint job was a problem for me as I feel unable to do any color shades. I use only the most evident colors (grey, black, silver) and two or three others for some details. I will try a low lighting for a better effect in my next photos.
Dayton be my guest if my humble carboard work can help your high level one. I will soon post some photos on my blog you can refer to.
Thank you Steve, you know that this could not have happen without your fantastic CG work on this bridge.
Joberg and Andy, the family Coolpix is perfect for this low ceiling bridge

It is GREAT to see that you found the reference material needed to complete this angle of the bridge! I never DID find a larger photo of that angle.

Good show, man, good show!

Amazing video, really captures the mood of the movie (and that music helps for sure)...A+ in my book, one of the best Alien project I've seen so far Cool
