The excellent small collection of tanks, armored cars, towed artillery, and scout car from Bradley Miniatures in 15mm scale expands with its eighth release: a highly detailed and armed Drop Pod kit.

Drop Pod

The Express Descent into Hell! Carrying two fire-teams of troops right into the heart of the action, the Drop Pod always surprises the enemy.

BR1508 – Drop Pod

Drop Pod

This pack contains one 15mm scale kit in high quality resin and metal for the assembly of one Drop Pod. Supplied is the pod itself (one-piece resin) and four sets of doors (metal), for your choice of having it buttoned up or deployed, plus four sets of (metal) aileron fins which can be placed up and stowed or out for breaking. Assembly is of low complexity. When built, this model is 65mm tall, 45mm wide when buttoned up. Shown on a 59027 75mm Round Base (not supplied).
