After seeing Alien Covenant on release night I fell a little bit in love with this dropship, so decided I'd MOC it. I've spent the last three days building a tweaking and I'm finally happy with it.

The design features four downwards thrust engines that move up and down as well as swivel left to right. Landing gear can be snapped off for flight mode. Ramp can be removed and side door fixed in place for flight mode too. I've also decked out the interior as best I can with this size, featuring: cockpit, weapons stow and rear med bay.
The only problem I had was with the rear engines. I couldn't get any connector pegs to work in LDD, so they just slot over three cross axle pegs. But I'm sure if you used connector pegs on the real thing they would work and make the model much more play friendly.

Mid scale, not to scale with details or lines. Minifigs will fit in the main body, but cannot fit in the cockpit seat. This is the size/scale I'm most comfortable with but, I'm sure someone who's better at building super structures can build a bigger more detailed version.

Definitely one of the more detailed and challenging things I've done being new to MOCs, but bucket loads of fun to design. I hope you like it!
