Colonial Marines APC from "Aliens" (1986)
About the Design
Squat, stocky and angular, the Colonial Marine Armored Personnel Carrier (APC) was designed to move troops quickly and safely in even the most hostile of environments. Armed with twin forward guns and a retractable roof-mounted blaster, the APC was distinguished by its oversized wheels and tiny driver's window.
About the Kit
This was the first kit produced by the U.K.'s Halcyon company under its "Alien/Aliens/Alien3" license. The vehicle's relative simplicity made it a good choice for an initial release.
This model was built from an original issue.
