I'd like to announce that i've been working on getting a new miniatures line up, called ClearHorizon Miniatures.
I have miniatures being sculpted, and a drop pod has been designed and will be cast up in resin.
I'm not ready to talk about the miniatures yet (although they are very cool ;) and are being sculpted by Rodrick Campbell from Highlander Studios), but I wanted to show off what Steve Tyler from CoolHand3d has 3D sculpted:
It is approx 29mm tall and approx 38mm wide.
It is designed to hold two occupants in each of it's three facings, for a total of six, although we've designed it with closed interior doors so you can say there are as many inside as you want.
The ramps and landing gear are all separate, in case you want to have a closed or open drop pod.
As far as the inner doors opening:
From Jane's Drop Pods and Dropships 2236
"The High Energy Landing / Direct Insertion Vehicle Mark X9 features a unique inner door that protects the occupants even after the ramps have released and deployed. In order to allow the door to open in the space provided the door has been constructed out of electric-memonic laminate nanite-based titanium and carbon alloy. When opening an electric charge is applied at a very specific frequency. The nanites then restructure themselves so that the top of the door widens by approx 6.2 cm. The remainder of the door then collapses into the space at the top and then solidifies open. To close the opposite occurs"
The design is being printed in 3d now, and I hope to have the resin castings available for sale soon™.
Thanks for looking, and I can't wait to show you guys more!
