Construction

This isn’t much of a custom. All I did was add a dark wash to the Narcissus, and then a mud wash to the stand.

History

The Narcissus is the shuttle Ripley used to escape the Nostromo in the great sci-fi horror classes, Alien. Of course, the creature stowed aboard and had to be jettisoned into space.

FYI: The engine exhaust that kills the Alien after it is launched into space is actually water. Several gallons were poured out of an upward hanging engine with a fog light glowing in the center. The water idea was revisited in Alien 3, where an Alien covered in molten lead was doused with cold water making it explode.
