Title: Caterpillar P-5000 Pwl
Name: David Mcgovern

This is a model I created off the Caterpillar P-5000 Powered Work Loader, which is seen in the movie “Aliens”.
I had to base it off pretty dark and obscure screen captures from the DVD so I’m not sure if its 100% accurate but I think its close enough.
The reason I decided to model it is because it has to be one of the most memorable pieces of machinery seen in any film and even though its more or less a fancy forklift it still kicks ass!
I mainly used extruded splines, lofts and some edited primitives to create this model.
