Freaking out about Sci-fi & Moives

Container Dropship

With the container now finished, its time to move onto building the Dropship for the container to go into when, when being taking from the Mothership/ Space Station down to a planet.

I always built the ship then had problems with finding place or even making the landing gear. So this time I thought I would build the landing gear and then the rest of the ship.

To help get the look of the landing gear I found diagrams of a Concorde landing gear and used that as the bases of my design.

Finally I placed the landing gear roughly where I want it to go on the ship.
As you can see I am reusing the cockpit from my Dropship. The idea is that both ship where built by the same company.

  1. Nice. Having the forethought to decide where important bits like the landing gear go is a great way to start. I’ve made similar mistakes before, built something and not left enough room for important elements.

    I like the gear so far. 🙂

  2. Thanks Chris.

    Yeah it seemed like a good idea to get it done. also as the landing gear is normally my down fall, I though I get it out of the way.
