"In addition to adding many many detail pieces for added accuracy, I adjusted the nosecone is several ways, firstly, I separated the 8rad tank part from the casting, bought the tank kit, and cast the specific piece separately so it's clean as possible (pressure cast), I also adjusted the nosecone width and girth so it fits the body much cleaner. I retrooled the engines, added a second option for the side locking clamps, have decal graphics for it now, etc.. etc.. Just a wonderful kit. The body is cast directly on the model built for ALIENS and to preserve its authenticity left many of its traits, so to get it perfectly perfect you'll still need to head in and sand some of the high and low spots on the panels."
These are the decals for the Narcissus. They were designed and created in Spring 2011. You can print them out on decal paper and apply them to your model.
Below you can see photos of the SPRING 2011 re-issue of this beautiful studio scale kit. The body and details are a mix of the model built for ALIENS and the model built for the original ALIEN. A full buildup tutorial will be following soon.

This model is about 1:35th scale.
In 2010, I added some new detail pieces to this model. If you order a kit you will get these new parts in your kit. They include: 4 side vent detail sheets (made on a laser cutter), and two underbelly fin pieces (also from a laser cutter). I haven't yet finished the new buildup using these parts but check back again here to see updated photos.
