1/8th Scale – Scratch Built Space Jockey Model

I’m Dave Tootill, and after many years of planning and construction I have finally finished this 1/8th scale scratch built model of the “Space Jockey” from the film “Alien”, also more recently known as the “Engineer” from the film “Prometheus”.

This thing has been completely scratch built and a real labour of love, but all the painting is finished. This model is by far the most ambitious project I’ve ever done and it has a lot of blood, sweat and tears in it. It was such a big job, I thought I’d better have a website dedicated to it’s build. I have lots more to add, but it begins here.

If you want to email me, please fill in this form, and feel free to leave comments on the photos, let me know what you think.

I’m always happy to answer any questions or queries about the construction process, so why not get in touch.
