Thanks joberg, You are right about the colors, I have just for the dark part of the head alone: flat black, satin black, gloss black, midnight blue, gun metal, and silver.

Took a couple hours break from Nostromo building tonight as my eyes were crossing doing the small hull details, so I worked on the ALIEN head a little bit... more airbrushing, used brass tubing to build the armature for the correct lips. I am going to try to get it like the Carlo Rambaldi head...

About 85% done, need to add some tubes off of the back of the jaw, and some minor airbrushing and a bit of hand-brushing..but for the most part it is almost finished.

I had to get it off my big table to make more room for the Nostromo I am building. The colors are black, gunmetal black, sea blue, gunmetal blue, gray, green, silver, and gold... I know it sounds like a bunch...especially on the head underneath the covering, which is mostly lost after it is installed .. but makes a great display head...

Very good job JTP!...and I don't think that those colours are lost; I'm sure that if you were to remove one of them you'd see the difference right away.

Thanks Joberg!

I took your advice as far as looking at the "Giger"" dvd, and saw just how many colors there were under the clear cover... green, blue... and the amazing thing is it shows Giger just slapping the colors on with an airbrush, so I just watched the DVD on my projector screen tv, and copied the way he was doing it with my airbrush using the pause button on my remote LOL! came out pretty good... I wish I had taken pics.... I sealed the dome down with a bead of black silicon sealer...and wow... looks organic... but now it's on forever

Yeah JTP, that would"ve been worth a Kodak moment. I'm always surprised at the amount of shades of colours a prop can contain Surprised ; you certainly did very well with the Alien head Cool
