U.S.S Sulaco

Its very strange, i got all the Halcyon when they first came out - except for the Nostromo (which was out of my price range back then, and even more so now) and this one. Dunno why - i love the design and its Injection Plastic, my medium of choice.

Anyway, been keeping an eye out for one since i've got back into hardware but they've always gone for big bucks on the 'Bay.

But finally got one for 20 quid from Italy. It was with some trepidation that i opened the box as its always had sniffy reviews, mainly over its size. But, what're they on about? That's a decent enough size, lovely intricate detail and looks to make for a neat finished model.

If there's any surprise its the few parts that go up to make it - and most of them go on the sensor array.
