A Nostromo Gun from Ridley Scott’s sci-fi classic Alien. This vintage original prop weapon consists of a commercial Webley and Scott brand Webley “Junior” 177 metal air gun with various production modifications and additional dressing including a metal tube with threaded plug in the gun barrel, an added arm and possible laser guide below the barrel with articulating trigger pull and a sight-scope accessory on top. This small-scale prop Nostromo Gun measures 9.5″ x 5.75″ x 1.25″ was made for use by child actors to give the impression that the “Space Jockey’ set was much larger than it actually was. Ridley Scott’s and cinematographer Derek Vanlint’s children dressed in smaller-scale costumes replaced adult actors in several perspective shots. Such prop Nostromo guns were attached to space suits in holsters. Exhibits some production distress and age with chipping to the lower plastic grips otherwise in very good condition.
This item comes with a Hero Prop Certificate of Authenticity.
