I'm aware that at such early stages it may not be that exciting but............. I recently acquired a Mander/Ruffkin Alien suit kit, in a word....AWESOME! Many thanx to both Pete Mander and Chuck Ruffing, couldn't have done without you two! The following pics were taken right after it arrived! The whole kit layed out, untrimmed, unpainted magnifisance, well to me. Some headshots Since then I have trimmed, sanded and fitted all pieces. I'm still assembling the soles of the feet and installing earthmagnets for tail attachment. Thought I'd latex over the magnets then paint. Honus and I have been conversing and to my understanding he's willing to construct me a mouth rig for it! SWEEEEET!! Honus is talking lip curling, drooling, inner tongue snapping out to 6" - 7" splendor! Rather stoked at Honus's proposition! So I'm hoping to begin painting by this weekend, after I watch some Alien flicks for inspiration! Let the "bug" bashing begin! Thanx for lookin'!
