Hi, Fred!

I was reading an old post of Refinery1's scratch-built refinery and notice an interesting photos yours.

It's the one about halfway down the page.

Is that a scale model of the Nostromo's lift and support strut?

Sure does look like it.

What's the story behind that?

Hi Darrell,

To answer your question this is an old photo of original items made during production and owned by Phil Rae at the time it was taken...

The refinery is a prototype built iirc by Martin Bower, it's now part of the collection of sciencefictionarchives.com (not displayed on their site but shown in a book they released last year titled "Generations Science-Fiction")

Hope it'll help !

Fred

Yes, sir, it does.

More research for me to enjoy...

Take care, bud!
