This is a quick model I whipped up today to go along with the drop ship I am working on. The basic concept behind this is that it is connected to the ship via the round port. When it's time to go to battle, the door is closed up and the pod is dropped onto the battlefield.
(before anyone says anything, I know my Legos could use a good wash.)
The connecting door closed.
The rear of the pod.
The rear doors are blown off with an explosive charge, clearing the path for soldiers to exit.
The top of the pod.
A view inside the pod. Door controls and jump lights are to the left of the shot. The pod is meant to accommodate 6 soldiers and a squad leader.
Yeah its great. I really like the contras between the hard outer surface and the inside of it. I have just one thing that nags mee. The vertical white line of the 4, written on the side of it, shoud bee a bit thinner ;)
