Hi guys,

Ever since the first time I laid eyes on Fred's beautiful recreations of this prop, I knew I had to have one for my ALIEN collection....

So I just wanted to share with you my latest prototype of this prop. I had a high resolution label recreated from pictures of the original prop, and is now working on adjusting the colours. When this is done, I'm having it printed as a label (or perhaps sticker) so it applies easily on the 16 oz vintage beer can.

I'm quite pleased with the result so far.....

Hope you don't mind the lovely lady in the background, I placed the beer can strategically...

Well done, but I expect nothing less from Fred. Wonder if he has any left in his fridge? Wink

Love the mag as well (of course). Both would fit in well in the BR Universe.

Cheers Anders! Mine is just a color copy applied to a vintage can so I would dearly love an upgrade.

Hi! I love this prop... The one I have is actually also just a printed label on a vintage can. I just added a clear film to sharpen it up a notch. I had the label redesigned so the detail is sharp... PM me if you want the hi-resolution file Very Happy It's too big to upload here. NICE shirt btw Cool

PM inbound! That's my Balaji recreation! So glad to see one put together. I wish I could source some Gypsy Corn cigarettes to go in mine.

The Balajis are awesome, you did a man's job on them... They're perfect with the beer can and ashtray, absolutely perfect...

Outstanding Anders.

What are three things you would never, ever, expect to see on a space fairing vessel?

1. A Beer Can

2. A packet of Ciggies

3. An Ashtray

I love SRS. Have got Fred`s awesome beer can and ashtray just need to finish retrogarde`s perfect Balaji`s
