I apologize if this topic has been covered.I did some brief looking around on this board and couldn't find a similar topic. I collect film props.One of my favorite places to get them is The Prop store of London.They have a sister store in Los Angeles(The Prop Store of Los Angeles).A few years back they started a restoration project on the huge Nostromo filming miniature used in Alien.They video taped the entire project.I think it took close to a year to complete.You can easily find the video(probably in 5 parts)on YouTube. Here's a link to The Prop Stores Nostromo restoration page including some video. http://www.propstore.com/nostromo.htm Before restoration pic.It had been left outside to bear the elements for decades.

very cool, thanks for sharing this. Having only just skimmed over that page yet, I wonder what happened to the refinery part of the ship?
I'm not sure Jim.I know I've seen bits and pieces of it on various collectors sites.
