That's a cool looking dropship. Especially like the heat-shielded thrusters and maneuvering jets

Though for a moment I thought 7TV was doing figures for YouTube link

But it only carries 6 troops?

"But it only carries 6 troops?"

Not if you scale it to fit in with 28mm troops… it should take a few more then (definitely 10, possibly 12 and that puts it in Valkyrie territory).

Nice kit.

The cutaway view shows three seats for passengers. Presumably there would be three on the other side.

"The cutaway view shows three seats for passengers. Presumably there would be three on the other side."

That's correct but if you converted it to a smaller scale, you would be able to fit more seats in and therefore, more people… so you should be able to get 10-12 28mm miniatures in there.

That looks really good.

The only downside is that the pilot and any seated passengers in the kit are blatantly 54mm scale.

However, Infinity has some 'big infantry' and light Tactical Armored Gears that are about 54mm tall.

It looks like the pilot and his console are separate pieces from the rest of the ship. Grab some 1/48 or seated 28mm pilots and scratchbuild a cockpit, there should be enough space for a flight crew of 2, maybe 4 (pilot, copilot, ops commander and flight engineer).

Also, there is space in the rotating airlock for another couple of fold down seats.

This little shuttle has a lot of possibilities.
