Beautifully-detailed build of the Nostromo ship from Alien

Ridley Scott's 1979 horror masterpiece, Alien, featured one of the most beautiful movie spaceships of all time, the USCSS Nostromo. Unlike the massive battleships from space operas like Star Wars, the Nostromo was designed to look gritty and industrial, imbued with a cold, military aesthetic. These qualities are perfectly reflected in Mihe Stonee's Lego creation.

The result is a vivid and clean 9,000-brick ship that's impressively well-detailed and quite beautiful. From the conductors, to the engine shaping, refrigeration system, and greebles galore! She’s 75cm in length, 44cm wide, 24.5cm tall and weighs between 5 and 6kg. Mihe put in hours of Lego Digital Design work and about 40 hours for assembly. All totaled, this build took approximately 3 months of planning, drafting and compiling of parts-lists.

As far as MOC’s go, this one's quite brilliant and personally, I'd love to see this on Lego Cuusoo and support the shit out of it. [MocPages]

Beautifully done. I always thought that the Nostromo itself was the gigantic spaceship we see in the movie, only to later find out that it was just a refinery tugged by this thing.
