Very impressive build, very realistic hoses and nice clean seperation between the red and white. I too have built one of these so I understand how much time and effort you need to put in to make something as good as this.

Thanks for your friendly comments!

After finishing of the ALF model I though by myself how can I built realistic hoses.

I had an idea and began to implement them. As I made ​​the hoses can be seen here:

Sorry, the tutorial is written in German language, but I hope the pictures says more than thousand words.
