Reconstructing the Trygon – part 2 2

Reconstructing the Trygon – part 2

Finishing the Trygon was a quick task since I didn’t choose to modify any further parts of the model. It’s a great kit to put together and has a good few options (spares!) to choose from.

For the paint scheme I was torn between a dark glossy look, much like the Alien films, and the earthy yellow and blacks of Starship Troopers’ bugs. I opted for an Alien-inspired theme, but with a few subtle changes to move it away from the monotone black.

This had to be done.

  1. The model is gorgeous. Always has been, just not been so affordable until now.
  2. Aliens shouldn’t have eyes! Perhaps I’ve been scarred by Giger and Ridley Scott, but I think it’s for the best.
  3. Aliens…

Tell me this isn’t both awesome and scary.
