This is my build of Jan's M-577 APC from the Movie "Aliens". Here's hoping I do it Justice.
More pics as i make progress, im taking my time on this one. Love the move, and this is one of my favorite Wheeled vehicles from a movie, so I wanna do it right
Looks great from here Did you download this from the "Sulaco" site? Could you post a link, please? I think that wold be a great car to drive around in.
I've always liked this one, and seriously, if I could afford and APC, I'd make it street legal and drive it. Who'd cut me off then?
sorry, Its not from the Sulaco site, but one of its sister sites. http://aliens.humlak.cz/aliens/aliens_papirove_modely_gb.htm
Me? In MY APC...
seriously taking my time with this............
Some of the pieces aren't fitting exactly, but it's close enough that i can make it work. Got one of the tires knocked out (as you can see) I'll probably do those in between other parts of the build
Got home from work, and the main body of my build was MIA. WTF?!
Ive looked all over the house, and I cannot find it. this makes model 3 that has been unfinished. FML
Oh Noez Dented Rick, could it have been the offspring, or the wife? hope you find it, i love the alien franchaise and i believe most will agree aliens was the best in the franchaise, the equipment design of everything was so great most if not all of it would be a treat to build, good luck finding it.
I don't have a dog, and the Wife is deployed....so Im sure it was the boy, but he denys it. no matter, ill find out the truth
look upon the bright side of things. It could have been a brittle and sensitive plastic or resin model, wherupon the parts would be damaged beyond repair. With this paper model, you can start anew and probably enhance it to the outmost. In my Aliens dropship thread, there are a few photos of the interior of the APC which may help you out in building the interior. Also, on resinilluminati.com, there are various build thread of the APC as well. Some are lit up, motorized and interior builds. You have to join to see some of the builds, but it is free and the wealth of reference material is beyond belief. Master studio builders over there. Enjoy and lets start from afresh. Waiting to see attempt #2 on this one.
When I return from overseas, I plan to tackle the interior build for this one as well.
Exactly, I not mad, just want to know where it went. I WILL reprint and rebuild. This is one of my Favorite movies
