Container Dropship Part 5.
lots of little thing have been done over the last few day.
starting off with the ships main engines. still need to do a few things in this area like detail it up a bit more.
But this pic gives you an idea of the engine set up.
next up was to cut a door into the main hull for the crew to get in and out. I built stars and worked out how it all opens. (a short ainmation of that coming soon.) Again still need to add details to this area.
I also put in “arms” that will pick the container of the ground and hold them in place while on the ship. To say modelling them again, I just took them from the other version.
Next thing to do was a “Braces” to the ship that would give a stonger conection to the landing gear/ VTOL Engine pod and the main ship. after that, it was to build the VTOL. simple design on this one, but I am not sure about the grid that covers the top. I am thinking that I should leave it open.
I have also built hatches that will cover the VTOL engines when not in use and for re-entery into a planet atmosphire. I think I should add more details here but not sure what. I might look at an ISD to get insperation.

also started to do some panel work though this pic does not really show it off.
