This is an old and increasingly rare kit from the 90s. Its a very simple kit to build, no more than 40-odd parts to assemble and it even includes a tiny Dropship as well! It measures 12" (30cm) from nose to tail.

Nice.

Also very random fact - Both sets of titles are correct, which must mean that Ripley hyper-sleep walks!

Very nice. This was from my favourite "Alien" movie, would have liked to have built the Alien Queen, battling Ripley, in her "Loader".

@wingnutmike - Good luck with the 3rd mortgage probably required to buy them, but Halcyon did an injection moulded "Ripley in Powerloader" and a blow-moulded vinyl Alien Queen in 1/12 scale, so this could be done.

I've seen one of these dioramas on the Sci-Fi Sig table a while ago...
