I present the legendary Aliens Dropship by Halcyon. I'm teaming this up with a resin APC by Gonzoid Models, sourced from Comet Miniatures. I'd love to get my hands on the Halcyon APC but its the wrong scale to work with the Dropship. My intention is to build a diorama of the "deploy and dust off" moment in the movie. The closes you get to see of this is screencapped here: as the action switches from the dropship flying in over the complex to a close up of the ramp touching down and the APC deploying before switching back into the two shot shown above. So here is the box and sprue shots: Starting on the APC. This is a big block of resin, quite roughly cast in solid but brittle resin. it looks like it was cast from a scratch-built master as you can still see some of the joins from the master in the cast resin. its taken quite a bit of cleaning up and a lot of sanding to get rid of a chunky mould line that ran around the uppser sides. The wheels to had a lot of "flash" and were quite crudely finished. I've given them a good clean up and now they look sort-of presentable. Problem is they are not a good representation of the original! These wheels are two skinny and the treads are totally wrong. I'll have to see if there is anything I can do to make them more accurate. In that screencap you can also see how inaccurate the main gun is. I'm alrady planning to drillout the barrels on the front cannon as the mouldings on these were essentially just blobs. you can see how they are supposed to look here: Stay frosty!
