Sulaco ship Aliens Nerf mod – Vortex Vigilon Conestoga-class light assault carrier

Sulaco ship Aliens Nerf mod – Vortex Vigilon Conestoga-class light assault carrier

Hi fellow “Aliens” fans! Been working on this Nerf mod for a few weeks on and off and finally finished it this week. You may recall my last Nerf Vortex Vigilon was also a space ship (deep space mining vessel Ripley’s Hope), this time it’s an assault ship, a take on the USS Sulaco from the film “Aliens”. I wanted to use as many Nerf parts as I could here, so see if you can spot them all. There’s Nerf plunger parts, plunger buttons, Air restrictor dart holders, parts off triggers, screw sections off the Nite Finder for the cannon and I also used the internals of one gun to help make the stand, along with part of another.

Some of the Nerf parts used! Can you spot them all?

The pictures don’t really get across the overall mass of this gun, there’s this weird disparity when I look at it on display and then see it in images, oh well, them’s the breaks, here it is:

For those who wondered where it ended up, in the cinema room with some of my other “Aliens” things.
