ISD: Infantry Support Dropship

Post by CloneCommandoXion on Sat Aug 15, 2009 10:44 pm

Ok first of all I apologise for such bad pics because I'm a photography noob Embarassed . Anyways this is a little ship I wanted to make, it's not meant for looks, it's meant for playability. It's a neat little ship because I packed in some features Smile . The actual ship's design(the turbines) are based off a halo hornet but hey, it looks good. The front cockpit opens with a hinge piece, though you all probably would know that Razz . It also has blast shields at the sides that can be positioned to protect the troops. When it sways to take advasive action the drop pod doesn't sway with it. It's fun to release the pod because all you have to do is tilt it backwards. Unfortunatly when I was showing this creation to my friend it broke so I had to redesign the whole thing.

C&C welcome.

I like how you applied those rubbery parts on the bottom to ease its fall (in the MOC world, not reality of course). It looks pretty nice, though the rear area where those two black flaps looks a bit weak.

It just looks rudimentary compared to the rest of the model.

The front cockpit part is so win! I love it! The rest... not so much, it looks way too underpowered for the front.

The problem here is that while the front is wide and large, the back is wide and flimsy-looking. If the back was, say, wide and bulky, it would match the front. Similarly, if the vehicle became increasingly thin, it would also look good. The thing is that the front and back just don't work together aesthetically.

I really like the cockpit, spine, and engines, but the troop area is shabby compared to the rest. Fix that up and you'll have a superior model!

This is splendidly done. The piece usage for the VTOL mechanism is admirable, however those disks could use a little more substance to them. The weapons are nifty; the cockpit's framing with the two Bionicle pieces (at least that's what they appear to be) is also rather unique. The platform attached to the bottom of the craft - which I'm assuming is the actual deployment mechanism - is a little rough around the edges. However, I find it to be a solidly designed MOC, with a decent amount of effort put into it.

Bravo Wink !

Perhaps I'll come out with a version two, of the back part anyways. Any ideas on what to fix on the back?

They are more along the lines of Police motorcycle frames.

Motorcycles? Now that's genius! Hola Wow!

If only the back part wasn't so pitiful... can't wait for V2!

I can tell you have put effort into the shape and the look of the vehicle.
The colours really suit the dropship.

Very well done. Smile Thumbs up High Five!

Yes, as a Halo player I can tell you have effort into the shape and look of the vehicle.

One: What the flying FRAK does that multiplayer travesty HALO have to do with anything? Since when does playing it make you an authority on MOCing?
Two: "You have effort into" is a broken statement. Learn2English, kthx.
Three: How do the colors suit the dropship? What makes them pleasing to the eye?
Four: This isn't feedback, this is nonsense.



I had to, Mods. This is simply a rotten post, but yet it's perfectly "unreportable" Razz .

This craft looks very similar to a Hornet. In fact, it looks like a Hornet cept' CW and Republic-ified.

Nice MOC! I love how you did the propellers. It kinda reminds me of my Mynock Dropship. Smile
