    Yeah what a set of kits, possibly the best overall subject ever created...He is in the development stages of a fully pose-able 1:24 dropship... :shock: :shock: to match his APC....
    Im stupified at his creations

    He is a GREAT modeller...but he doesn't have the plans for the dropship completed, and he doesn't have the 'Nostromo" from the first movie...I could have sworn that I saw a paper model of the Nostrom somewhere, but I haven't been able to find it again....as an side, just finished the TIE bomber model from the lvhcc website....what a fun model to build!

    I hope Im not pointing out the obvious, (but I did direct another modeler to them recently as he couldnt find them :shock: :shock: ) but Jan does have 3 separate Dropships availaable at the moment, Ive built them and they are excellent lits with perfect detailing.
    In the Colony section in the Aircraft & Vehicles are the 3 of them & an APC

    Enjoy...I dunno if Jan comes to this site but if he does.....

    Top marks and thanks so so very much for your kits

    OK Guys................. is it me or what?

    I tried to un-archive the drop ship file and it asked for a password. I looked on the site and didn't see any reference to one.

    HELP!

    No, only the models from the movie "Aliens" uses that password. The models in the bonus section usually use something different. The password is listed just above the download icon.

    Note that Jan is concentrating on "Aliens" thus no Nostromo which is from "Alien"

    I think I remember seeing a Narcissus (the Nostromo's escape pod) somewhere but I don't think there was ever a "kit" for it.

    etopsirhc, thanks for the info. Please, if you don't mind. This is an International forum, and a lot of people use translating programs. Using abbreviations like "idk", "b4" "u" and "sry" don't translate well. The limits of the technology. I am sure this will all change soon, but for now, could you please just write the old fashioned way? Till technology catches up? I have enough trouble typing because I have big hands, I would love to use texting short cuts. Thanks. :)

    Someone was working on the Nostromo and someone else was working on the Betty (crappy Aliens movie, cool ship), but they have fallen off the map. Looking very doubtful that they will ever see the light of day. So is the world of papercraft sometimes, oh well. :cry:
