AVP - Aliens event at Leicester Space centre,

A while back we were asked if myself and Lee could nip over to the Leicester space centre and run the marine board for an Aliens event.

Well it'd be rude not to eh!

So the calm before the storm, We weren't too sure how busy it would be, and boy we were busy! 

I've not been to the space centre for a while and its still as cool as I remember! 

The fabulous Mr Upton

Actually working for once! 

Myself and Rob went a grabbed a brew and spotted this! 

Lee still "working" in all honestly the night was really busy as we were positioned outside the planetarium where they were showing the film, and we got hit by waves of people, it was strange chatting to people that weren't gamers but had an interest in the Aliens universe, 

I managed to to have a quick mooch around and snapped some of the movie props and some replica's  that were on show,

So queenie..

This is an example of the type of detail that these guys go to with the kit that they make and show off!
