Lot No. 19

The Prop Store Live Auction catalog is a heavy tome, packed with goodies for sale August 26th and 27th…

…including the 11-foot Nostromo miniature. Registered as Lot No. 19.

The catalog features a separate 17-page booklet that showcases several rare production photos.

Here’s a sample:

In this tableau, we see three miniature crewmen traversing the alien landscape. Notice the two vertical elements just to the left of the forward landing gear. They are in-scale and look remarkably like the track for the gangway lift that Dallas, Lambert, and Kane ride down to the surface. Could this have been an alternate location to that depicted in the “belly pans” of the movie’s intro sequence. And it seems to imply the trio trekked away from the ship’s bow, instead of sternward. All very interesting!

The Prop Store auction catalog (480-plus pages) is not cheap, but it is well worth the cost for the Nostromo photos alone. The other items up for sale are fantastic and well-documented.
