    This project was 19 months in the making. It is studio quality work at its finest. It was enjoyable to watch and follow your work and progress.
    Thank you @skoda for sharing this build with all of us!

    This model has to be the model that has blown me away, in any medium, of being "self made". It is awesome. It would work so well as a miniature for a movie. I wish I did animation. I just got a great program (Pixar's Renderman), but there aren't any animation programs I can use without selling my house, to do any with. Not only that, I'm getting old enough that just keeping up is a job in itself, and I have run out of free tokens, and cash to by more. (I've been playing Airborn Asphalt 8 too much, just got an A"A car yesterday, Ford GT40.) ;)

    This is amazing! I've built alien99's sulaco as I'm a huge fan of the franchise but this is just... wow. I would love to have the vision to attempt a model of this magnitude but I'm afraid it is beyond my scope. The Nostromo is a beautiful ship. Kudos, my friend.

    Now this the kind of work i brag about to people when I explain what paper modeling is!!! A new standard of excellence has been reached! Thank you Skoda! Should be model of the year. I think I remember you wanting to start all over on this at one point, did you? Was it to enlarge the model? I notice it's quite big!
