1/11th (Scratchbuilt) Aliens M577 APC




This is a project I started in July 2003 and managed to finish her in December 2003 (just in time for an online competition, where I came fifth). I'd attempted this project before and it's the second time I'd bought a Halcyon model to work from. The final scale was determined by the wheels in the end, even though they had to be widened and eventually I'd like to cast some of my own to match the film original.
She is fully operational, with adjustable suspension, turret/gatling gun traverse and working lights. I need to upgrade the steering servo, as it struggles with the load of the tyres, but otherwise I'm pleased with the results so far. I need to weather it some more and then get some proper video shots of her in action.
