    They all start looking very similar and familiar don't they.

    The drawings in the first two images above were concepts, and ended up being changed a fair bit before they finalized the design. The dropship from the CGI series looks mostly like the retrieval ship (lower drawing), but with quite different landing gear, different tail and different outboard thrusters and lift engines. It actually ended up being a very cool design imo.

    Nuh I think for an army that fights bugs, their dropships look a bit too much like insects :) But still they look a whole lot better than the ones from the movie. But the resemblance to the Pelican and Cheyenne is too strong, as I don't want a bunch of dropships that look all the same. At least not now. Maybe I'll get to them in a few years ;)
    Considering the size of the BT ships, they look more and more like a special feature since they are too large for the regular series :D

    i always thought space above and beyond designs were very bland. but still a worthy addition to the project

    Truly, the Space designs are a little bit crude :)
    Well, there's another one ready, this one will be only 4cm long:

    Bet me. If we can do a 3-foot Galactica, Roger Young, and just about everything else, why would an oversized easter egg be difficult?

    And I be the creator of that there beastie. Ask and it's yours!

    The Overlord and Union would not be difficult to make although the models would be rather large if made to scale with table top mecha.

    WOW! I've never been able to find actual measurements anywhere. I ended up taking a battlemech and designing the door to fit, then working out from there. Thanks for the info!

    Actually, I'd like a small version of the ISSAPC from Space: Above and Beyond for use with Battletech. I have a 28mm one designed, as does someone else. I lost all my master files before I could get it shrunk, though.

    This one's 10cm long in it's current version as I found some size information that stated a length of 50m, which is far too long now that I think about it... the ISSCV should be around half that lenght I think.

    One in the same scale as Jans UD-4 would be great (as would a Pelican)...

    Odd. I could have sworn I posted some of those posts last summer...time warp or EBOK error?

    Kjev, you've been consistently posting. You are a great consistent poster/member!! Something great for others to emulate. So consistent, I could see how you would have time warped. So are we older or you younger, ow does that work? In any event, this thread is dead. If the original poster wants to return to it he can start a new one because I just closed this one :)
