Drop Pod Scratch Build

 I found a Template for a Drop Pod online.

I was not planning on running any drop pods, so I was not going to buy any. However, the prospect of building one out of stuff that I have around the work area already appealed to me.

So, here is a picture of the WIP. I need to trim it and shape it up a little, but it is not very far from receiving some paint.

I have no idea what I will put in it. Maybe a Plasma or Melta heavy veteran assault squad for fun.

I am certainly open for suggestions.

Oh, all the writing on the template was in French. I managed to decipher most of it. lol!


I actually just found a better place with the template. The following link has both this Dread version and a troop version template with instructions. I didn't have any instructions for mine. See what kind of great service I offer you.

Highly amusing, your picture is actually of my drop pod which I made a few years back. I think I posted it on dakkadakka which is probably where you googled the picture from. Nice attempted blag though!

Do you mean that I used your template, or do you mean that I used your actual photo?

I very well could have used your template. If, however, you mean the latter, I assure you with all honesty that this is a photo which I took. This is not your photo.

SouperJim, in order to prove that this is not your photo or your drop pod, I added two new photos. In these photos, you can see pictures of MY drop pod upside down and lying side-ways on MY work desk in front of MY terminators.

I am not sure why you attempted to discredit my work, but you are incorrect. A gentlemen would apologize for such an insult to another man's honor and integrity.
