narcissus - shuttle from alien

Thanks to mache777 in my Epstein thread, they brought up the idea of designing the Narcissus from the end of Alien / start of Aliens. So that is what I started doing this weekend.

The full gallery is here.

WOOOT!!!! This is awesome!!! The Narcissus is the only main ship from the classic Alien Saga that is still missing in paper form (we already have RMT's Nostromo, Jan's Sulaco and the marvellous Derelict ship and the Betty). BTW, the models from Alien and Aliens are not the same. They differ in certain aspects. I'm looking forward to seeing your updates.

I'm aiming for right around a foot long.

I am finding that various views of the model differ in a bunch of details... and even establishing if the model is from the movie or from someone's workbench is a challenge.

Surprising that there hasn't been a model before of this.
Will be following this with great interest.

I was able to keep working on the hull panels last night. At least the topside is starting to come together.

Gzeballo made one (own design?) in ’09; pics here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/37454872@N08/

Vger1981, who gave us the Derelict & Betty, was working on one 2 yrs ago, over on Z.


David,


Following with much enthusiasm as I was researching and designing this very ship a few years back (’14). Excited to see the beauty that you come up with.

I have several drawings/views/plans of this. If you’re interested, PM me and I’ll send them your way.


Also, there’s the Official RPF Narcissus thread for additional inspiration: Narcissus Builders Club N Stuff. -J

Skyman00 has some great reference diagrams... and I clearly have a bunch of mistakes in what I've done... so much so that I think I'm going to start a new cad design to get things right.
