Dropship by Blackfire-Dragon Dropship by Blackfire-Dragon
This would be the central part of the series (thus the name:lol:) but wont be the last one, as im preparing one more ill submit later today;)

the dropship design, as i said early on, is somewhat based on the "front mission" games (i have the 4th and think its a great game:D) but the main difference would be the propulsion sistem, where instead of one big helix on top, i put the big thrustes at the sides plus the 2 smaller ones in the back.

it carries some long range weapons (long-range cannons and as many missiles as i could put pieces-wise, but i think theyre enough;)) to clear the drop-zone in case of need while approaching enough to get down to a safe height to literally "drop" the mechs to the ground from mid-air with a locking mechanism that attaches to the upper-back of the torso of each mech (i left a hole there with a special piece behind so that it would fit securely and not fall off by accident;P)

in matters of size its about 35x35x25cm and weighs about the same as the GITS tank did though has a more solid build wich makes it less fragile:D (the legs were at the top of their strength and could be a pain if lifted to clean beneath it:lol:)

yeah:D the locking mechanism was easy, the tougher part was to think of a way to create the 3 "legs" in a way that could support the 2 mechs without tumbling:P but using a pair of a piece that came in the last set, i managed to make it stable;)

glad u liked it!:D
thanks a lot for the :+fav:s and for the :+devwatch:!!:w00t::icongrin--plz::hug:
