Holey moley Ian!!!!
I had trouble with this kit when i bought/built it 20 years ago or so...it's really nice to see it done properly! And the lights just seal the deal!
The APC is fantastic too!
Makes me want to watch the film again, but waiting for the Blu-ray is hard.......

Not only did you do a superb job, but you built all the fiddly bits and lit the tank boot...
and the fact that you didn't break that delicate nose dart thingy..well, that's just being pretentious

Fantastically done sir

Nice, tightly built diorama. My compliments. Nicely lighted, and the paint looked VERY nice. This kit is a bugger to build, by all accounts. I have one in my stash, from long ago...it was one of the nicer designs from ALIENS. I'm curious...how did you do the gridwork, for the Sulaco's hangar deck? That looked amazing!

Default Re: Halcyon Dropshipw/APC done and done.

Thanks for the kind comments all and my apologies for not responding.
Kinda slipped the old noodle there.
Well that and I was happy to see the back of the damn thing.

I'll say this, I do belive that satan will be wearing snowshoes before I ever grapple with one of these again. Never had so many "oh fer fuck sake..." moments on one build. Truth to tell I think any enthusiasm I had for this went out the window just after I fitted the internal bay.

But then a commission is a commission, it goes with the territory and no-one held a gun to me head to take the job.
The next person wanting one may well have to though

Scratchwan Learner, Oh it can be an absolute bloody pig to build. Well to be a bit more accurate, it's a bit of a pain to build, to make it look anything decent is a stone cold bastard that fights you all the way to the finish.
At least this one did.

As to the gridwork deck/hadleys hope landing grid, in simpleast terms it was a wood slab with much plasticard and custom photo etch I made up for it guled on and painted.

All explained in the WIP log on my site. Here's the link to the page for all the basework silliness and it starts about half way down that page:

http://www.ianlawrencemodels.com/wipdropship11.html

Thanks again everyone and go easy all!

I bought one of these when they first came out. I started to build it. I then realized the parts did not fit right. Who designed this?!?!?! Well needless to say it got stuck back in the pile 'o kits, never to be seen again!

Great job on your build. It turned out awesome!
