USS SULACO/ mirektuner by / Jan Rükr / 1:320 Tuning



The movie prop was constructed for James Cameron´s ALIENS (1986) movie. Syd Mead is responsible for the design and Skotak Brothers for the construction. Interesting Thing is, that the rail-guns positions were changed and the whole model is detailed from the right side only.

In the story is the ship assigned as a transport for colonial Marines (USCM-United States Colonial Marines), which must investigate, what happened with the colony on the LV426. That´s all to the movie line. In the bigger perspective there is no proper (correct) information. Most fans disagree on the major details of the back story. Personally, the only things that I can state are facts that were mentioned in the movie. So, the U.S.S. Sulaco is a little bit over 731 meters in length, carry two of the UD-4L Drop-ships (I can tolerate 4). The hangar for the drop-ships is over 80 meters in length. By the number of EEV vehicles we can calculate hypothetical capacity to 100 people. There are 30 crew members confirmed (two drops with 15 people). In the front hull there are 5 hangars for incoming ships. Two Portal ramps operated in front of the hangar doors on each side of the ship. Other functions are unknown. How is artificial gravity works, What kind of engines the ship have?..And so on. From the outer signs we can guess something about the weapons (cannons, rail-guns, partial beams), or engine character (rounded reactor with the " cooling tower")

U.S.S. Sulaco the is first ship of three (Sulaco, Sulaco3, Patna) paper-models, which will be downloadable here piece by piece trough time. Model has dirty navy blue camouflage. There is an Add-on in the shape of two drop-ships known as Bug Stopper 01 & Smart Ass 02 and an emergency escape vehicle - The BD-409 EEV in new and destroyed. All kits are designed to be printed on A4 format paper. The completed ship will be 175cm in this scale and printing settings. If you want to know more about printing or you have another question, first visit F.A.Q. section. You can find all of the models in the " Download" section.

The 3D model was created by Jan Rükr. The whole Sulaco ™ project was started on Wednesday, January 21, 2009, when it started to make on its own 3D model. After some time the 3D model was finished. Since March 2009, the 3D model has been trying to decompose, texture and gluing yet has built 60 % Model.Sulaco consists of 27 groups that are divided into sections of the SULACO.
The model is in A4 size and 1: 430 scale, this model will contain about 200 sheets of A4 paper

Side plates with ship logo
Group 02 is not too hard to build. Level of difficulty is 2/5. That one point is for small parts. The whole group has 18 parts on 3 sheets

So I'm starting with 1 part of the SULACA boat by the group labeled 02 and named sideboards with the boat logo.
This group includes 3 sheets + instruction sheet, 8 sheet print + A3 guide price 228 czk

Nice! If this were my project, I'd need to find another room in the house that this model could live in. Or maybe just get rid of the dining table....
