Hey mate,

Is this thing for space or dual purpose?

Cheers
Aaron

Dual purposes I'd say.

Finally an answer to Grandma's flying brick-an even bigger brick.

I'd actually like to see the cockpit overhang the front of the cargobay door.

Kinda like a combination of this Image and
Image
Something so the cargo section looks like a big fat square belly beneath it.

I know this supposed to be IP neutral. But any chance you could pose it next to some Grandma Wendy style vehicles.

Would it be possible to design it in a way that it is totally IP neutral but easy to convert to something along Grandma Wendy designs? (For the anal-retentive of us who like a consistent design aesthetic across verious models in army).

Cheers

James

I might see about putting in a second forwards-placed cockpit in addition to the main command deck at the rear.

An update would be good in between changing nappies which needs to be your current top priority

Bit of an update, showing the bridge, and new vertical thrusters.

Modified the bow doors; the "lip" at the front made sense as an infantry transport, but doesn't make sense for transporting vehicles.

Figureheads removed to show the doors more clearly.

Looks good, especially if you keep the drop door design, Would it not be an idea to put this with the plastic sprue kit
that is in concept at the moment as it would mean you have a decent size force, and maybe cheaper in bulk in plastic
to produce?

regards epic

Mega expensive to produce this in plastic. I'd not make my money back before I died.
