Building a planetoid.


As mentioned in a previous postBoyd Compton of TrekWorks has assembled a very nice buildup of the Nostromo 1:960 scale Halcyon vinyl kit.

In this update, Compton has taken the project to the next step: creating a diorama of the harsh planetoid the ship sets down on.

Nostromo, at read on the alien planetoid.

In his video, “NOSTROMO Landed On The Alien Planet LV-426 Diorama Build“, Compton talks about the ideas and concepts that went into this artistic take on an iconic scene.  He includes a slideshow that documents each step of the way.

There are some additional things to add before he finishes. I’ll be sure to post an update once it is available.
