Does anyone know where I might find some movie stills or maybe even some drawings of the mining vehicle at Hadley's Hope in the Aliens movie? This would be the vehicle at the begining of the directors cut release that had Newt and family finding the derelict ship.

Thanks

check out the Aliens Papercraft site run by Jan Rukr, he has got a 1/148 paper kit of the tractor....plus lots of other goodies:cool:
Thanks, that will help some. If anything I can use his detective work ase a reference for proportions. I've searched and searched and haven't found anything on this vehicle. Makes me wonder where he found his!

Joe, these are great pictures, thanks very, very much! Where the heck did you find them? I searched a great deal and really didn't find squat. I did see a paper model that will help with the proportions....should this project ever get started.

I'm trying to hunt down some R/C wheels that look close enough. Problem is, I know nothing about R/C cars or where to find info! I did find some screen caps but they're so dark you really can't see anything.

Those I found here, waaay down the page:
http://alienscollection.com/

My techique for searches: bring up Google, get creative on the name or variations of the name, hit search, then click 'Images'

Just as demo, I just now tried "Aliens Hadley's Hope vehicles" and got these:

Joe, I did exactly that! Even worded it the same as you did but didn't check ever image. You found what I didn't. Those two pics you posted were great. Gonna go back dig deeper and see if I find more.

Thanks for your help,

as the tires are not to wide , i think the tires off a AE SC10 might fit.
Yes Edward, those do look pretty good. One thing I've not done yet is a search to see what type of R/C wheels I can find. I'm sure I'll never get lucky enought to find that tire pattern!

I sent an email to my LHS to see if they had anything close, but, they didn't.

Thanks for posting.

I could MAKE something like that! I do think with a little patience that you could lay out the tread pattern, then figure out the radius. Once this is done you can transfer that to a plastic model that can be reproduced in 3D printer form. You'd be able to make copies of this in resin. You'd have to make a two part mould, but once that was established you'd have the part you want/need.
