Aliens: Powerloader

“Well, I can drive that loader… I have a class 2 rating…”

A few slightly less common pics of the Caterpillar Powerloader:

My own ‘beauty shot,’ made by combining multiple frames in Photoshop, to reduce grain and compression artifacts:

The recent work on the Conestoga-class patch brings my total to 53 canon and non-canon graphics.

Aliens: Conestoga-Class Promo Shirts

According to ‘expanded universe’ materials, the USS Sulaco is a Conestoga-class transport ship; formerly a troop transport, upgraded to a light assault carrier. With that in mind, I’ve created these Aliens-inspired shirt designs:

This is a logo design for the USCM Conestoga-class ship contract, as designed by Weyland-Yutani (Space) Corp, and built at their Conrad Shipyards. Fonts used are from the film, as is the WY logo. The shape of the patch echoes the WY logo, and the colors are inspired by the USCM patches seen on screen. The background of the patch features 13 stars and some curvilinear shapes from the USCM ‘delta’ patch Apone wears.

These are meant to be promotional items made by WY for their employees, and trade shows and such. This comes in three styles: a large full-color version, a small full-color version with “Design Group” written below the logo, and a large ‘low visibility’ version in gray and black:

Conestoga Design Group Small

Conestoga Low Visibility

It was difficult to find good profile pics of the Sulaco. Here’s a sample of my art:

As seen on the hull of the filming miniature:


I recommend the ‘navy heather’ for this, though other dark colors look OK:
