The Nostromo



Item Details

Category: Movie Prop
One of a Kind: Yes
Community Rating: Item Rating: 6 votes, 4.33 average.


The model of the Nostromo was constructed by a team of British special effects artists led by Brian Johnson, under direction from Ridley Scott. The Nostromo was constructed with a wooden structure over a steel frame that could be mounted from various angles, depending on the placement of the camera for a given shot. The surface is made of several different kinds of wood, including hand carved blocks that make up the contours, and luan for the flat surfaces. From here, an initial surface layer of sheet-plastic was laid down with a rubber cement. Additional layers of detailing where applied using chloroform (which melts the plastic slightly) as a glue, and polystyrene cement in some cases.

Why isn't it possible to rate this 10 stars ???

LOVE this model ! (even if the "docking tube" seen at the bow of the ship wasn't put back in place at the right angle by the restoration team... still don't understand why must admit)

Anyhow, congrats once again guys and many thanks for sharing !
