    Description

    Screen-used Colonial Marines "Drop-ship" filming miniature from Aliens. (TCF, 1986) This 1/12th scale Drop-ship filming miniature was constructed at Pinewood Studios in 1985 for James Cameron's Aliens. Several Drop-ships were built for the demanding shooting schedule that lasted approximately 8 months and they were photographed on an almost daily basis being exposed to fire, dust, falling debris, fog juice, etc. This miniature features the original Drop-ship 01 and Drop-ship 02 graphics and was used as both during filming ("01" is mounted on the port side with "02" on starboard). Designed to be shot with the missile pods either closed or extended, each arm is mounted on a hinge. Measuring approx. 81 in. long x 48 in. wide (with weapons pods open), the body is fabricated in fiberglass over a metal substructure with resin and styrene elements. The front two retracted landing "pads" were replicated and the model underwent expert restoration to the missile pods and cockpit. The Colonial Marines Drop-ship is forever engrained in science fiction lore as one of the greatest plausibly realistic space vehicles. One of the finest filming miniatures one could ever hope to acquire. Special shipping arrangements will apply.
