Cool article on blastr about how the model of the Nostromo used in the original Alien movie was saved:
“for roughly the next two decades, exposed to rain and heat and covered by little more than a few plastic tarps.”
An amazing amount of effort went into this restoration:
“The entire restoration took the better part of a year in between deadline-driven film and TV jobs, with Shook, Edjourian and four other artisans spending the equivalent of three months of full work weeks on the Nostromo. ”
