Orbital Dropship OD-8 "Scorpion"
Long time...welcome back. This is my newest MOC...the Orbital Dropship OD-8 Scorpion. Inspired by many sources such as: HALO, ALIENS and AVATAR, I always wanted to make a dropdhip using Olive Green and Dark Blueish Gray. No criteria was set for this MOC, mainly a free build. About 2 weeks to complete (5 hrs each day) making this my biggest creation yet. See individual pics for specific dropship details. As always I welcome your feedback. Thanks for looking and rating my creation. Enjoy!

Brilliant ship, Wesley! It looks quite imposing, and the color scheme that you chose does work well, so I think your 5 hours a day paid of.
