USS SULACO . From the movie Alien II (the best part i think...) - i prodly present the USS SULACO . A long journey is on this ship for myself... Since i saw the movie i wanted to built this beauty (o.k. that's years back...)! The start wasn't bad - i built the round middle section, which should be also my scale. I searched for the blueprint. Than i layed over a grid to meassure out the proportions - and let'S go (i thought...) But like every big project this ship has some difficult sections in it, where i often started thinking how can i do this or that. The most headscratching part was the big round engine with it's for cuts. I wanted to do it with nearly any gaps. So that was the part i need 2 years for the right solution...! The rest of the ship was done in LDD in 2-3 months and the building itself needed 3-4 weeks. Here is a LINK for more information about the ship and the movie, for those who don't know it O.k. some facts: parts: 9640 - ( i thought i could run the 10.000 mark, but sh.. on ) length: 137cm = 170studs height: 39cm wide: 19cm weight: i really don't know but maybe 5-6kg - it is heavy! Here is the blueprint, where i got the proportions. I also have many reverence pictures, but i think you could look for that yourself ;-) And here the built :-) ! The classic view - out of the movie the hole sideview The enginge. Here it was really hard to find good reverences, where you can see something! Here you can good see the round engine with the "cuts" on each side. the round middle section - (my scale) the side twin-turrets the under turret the upper turret this sections was also not easy, beacause it's getting narrower from 7 to 6 studs. i love how this curve turned out :-) ! The letters ;-) and yes the little grey line on the left means "USS" You can'T read it ? Than built a bigger one ! ;-) ! HAHA The antennas on the front. I'M really happy that they don't fall to the floor... And you can see also the frontend getting narrower from the side - as also from the top. the side turrets again The Dropship leaving the Sulaco The Assas modlue The middle section Some greebles on the under front The little Dropship And here for those who are interested some WIPs (technics i used) The Letters The SNOT-technic in the letter section That's the upper and under part of the enginge THe side parts of the engine and the middle section I hope you had a good journey through these pictures - and like this ;-) Update 07.04.2014: This model will be shown in the new book Beautiful Lego 2 , which will be released in october 2014 This was blogged here
