Republic Troop Transport - Rothana Heavy Engineering

Republic Troop Transport [RTT]



Flickr Set


Well, I've been working on this for the past two days. I learned a lot of new techniques and overcame a lot of obstacles, but I'm still not satisfied with it. One thing that helped was nuilding this in three sections. The front cockpit, the troop area, and the engine/mass-driver area. They're connected with pins and a couple plates on top and bottom. This will make it easier for fixing it up if I get some critique. I'm not sure I got the proportions correct, mainly on the back compartment.

If you have any suggestions, even if it's just a color change of a piece or two, let me know! I'd really like to do a V2, but at the moment I'm not sure what to change or how to change it.

I know I'd have liked to have done this in gray and dark red (Traditional Republic colors) but I didn't have the pieces for it. If you need any more pictures, don't hesitate to ask.

Pretty sweet. I would have given just a little text through the smooth parts on the side near the front end.

It's a bit blocky in some parts, but other than that it's great.

I think it looks pretty good, although the back doesn't look as good as the front or middle. Other than that, it looks great! Smile

You mean Photoshopped it in there or brick-built text?

Thanks. I'm working on a new version that's built around a frame that'll allow for way more sloping. Hopefully I can get it done by this weekend.

There is indeed! Here's the set. It's not very furnished, but hopefully V2 will be.

Yeah, I'm not proud of the back...

Thanks guys! Expect a second one!

I attempted one of these once. It failed.

Yours is pretty epic though! It would have been nice to get some rep red in there, but I understand because there isn't really a creative selection in that color... Sad

It looks really well built for sturdyness. Although like the others said it is a little blocky and has an odd shape. Wink But I really like the sides at the back!

I wouldn't say I succeeded, either. Razz

I've started a new one, actually, that I might be able to use gray and Republic red on. It's based on a frame system, but who knows if I'll finish it (School just picked up again... It really restricts the creative juices). And hopefully it'll only require a few pieces in Rep. red that aren't plates. -- Nevermind, I don't have the pieces or the time.

If I crammed as many as I could in there; about 17. Comfortably, though, it fits about 10-12.

Thanks guys!

Woah, it looks pretty cool. Wink

The back part of it is well done, and the coloration is pretty even.

You did a perfect job on this I think!!! This is a great rendition of one of the least publicized transport vehicles, used particurally on geonosis. Good work!

I say the bright red coloring is fine... I seem to recall from the original 2D cartoon series that Republic ships didn't have Republic red, but rather a brighter red. Perhaps that's a fault of the cartoonieness of the series, but whatever. Your design is awesome: blocky or no, that's the way it looks, and thus I say it's well done. Smile

Thanks! I really wanted to do something I hadn't seen done before, glad you liked it!

No, it's from the old Clone Wars game. But thanks!

Yes, I do remember that coloring issue... and it would work if it was from the cartoon (See above answer). But I'm glad you guys still like it!

Pretty good. Add some weapons to the top, and it would be great.

Thanks, but this was modeled after an actual canon transport that doesn't have anything like that on the top.
