Guy Builds Awesome Scale Model of Alien Space Jockey

by Paul Strauss

H.R. Giger’s creations in the Alien universe are some of the most awesome, iconic and creepy designs in the history of moviemaking. Now you can own your very own Space Jockey, just like the one in the original Alien.

Artist Dave Tootill says he’s been working on this amazing 1/8th scale model for about 900 hours, spread out over over two years. Tootill made the Space Jockey sculpture using DAS modeling clay, plastic sheets, rods, tubes, dowels, a model skull, and other bits and bobs.

Once the sculpting was complete, Dave handpainted it – much like H.R. Giger did himself when dressing the set for the original film.

It’s currently for sale over on Etsy for just under $9,000(USD), but due to its size, Dave will only ship it to a buyer in the United Kingdom.

You can read all about the build and the effort that went into this incredible creation over on hisĀ Space Jockey website.
