Custom built kit bash from a GI Joe Dragonhawk into a 28mm Dropship with detachable drop pod.
Table ready – Fully painted and weathered.
* Standing figures (leading edge 28mm) are shown for size only and are not included.
The Pilot and co-pilot (two figures in 1/48 scale) in the detailed cockpit are included.

This is a big model. I designed the detachable Drop Pod with the thought that a full mechanized infantry platoon with all their vehicles could be transported from space. The Drop Pod is held in place with actual magnets while being transported under the ship. Upon landing the Dropship can detach and provide fire support from the air.

The Drop Pod was built using sheet plastic around a block of Styrofoam with two side doors, two upper hatchs, and full bay doors at both ends. The doors are fixed in place and do not open. The Drop Pod is very solidly built.

The Dropship is over 20 inches long, 18 inches wide, and 8.5 inches tall
The Drop pod is 10.75 inches long, 5.5 inches wide, and 4.25inches tall (box itself 3.25 tall).
