The first fully assembled Nostromo kit has been completed and is shipping out.
We have started on a second one in the past week. The results make an incredibly detailed studio accurate static display model that measures 2 feet 3 inches. Pictured here is a peek at the first one:

I am now offering the large scale Nostromo kits available fully built to the private collector. We have decided to discontinue the Large size Nostromo kits, as there were originally 12 made in the mid 1980's and now 12 more by us with improvements during 2009 and 2010.
The fully built Nostromo's take 90-120 days, feature hand made aluminum and brass landing gear, thousands of hand applied panels, studio accurate metal antennas and probes., escape shuttle and hanger, observation blister and airlock.
The model is then finished in a six step process of airbrushing in quad gray finish, and hand painted details with the correct "WEYLAN YUTANI" Egyptian wings on the top main engine flaps.
