The 8th Passenger

Lego USCSS Notromo

From Ridley Scott’s 1979 masterpiece ‘Alien’; the USCSS Nostromo

This hulking black freighter is one of the most important spaceships in cinema history. Probably the first spacecraft that wasn’t all sleek and light inside, the Nostromo was more like a seagoing cargo ship; dirty, lived in, and not all that palatable. And it contained something that would definitely put a dent in its resale value when, after answering a distress call, the unfortunate crew discovered that there was another life-form sharing their air…

Before the franchise descended into the whole Alien Vs Predator farce it was also one of the few stories where the sequel (Aliens) was as good as the original, something only matched by The Godfather.

Anyway, the MOC: This stunning recreation of the Nostromo is the work of Mihe Stonee on MOCpages. Containing over 9,000 pieces and at over 70cm long it features complete landing gear, engine detail, lifts and communication systems. View the full gallery at the above link.
