Another month and another challenge, this one being the Season of Scenery, which I run and runs for 2 months, as we all know scenery can take a time, hence the length of the challenge.
For my first piece I've gone for an Imperial Dropship that first appeared in season 2 of "The Mandolorian" episode 6 where the Imperial troops ambush Mando, Boba and Fennec using two of the dropships, now originally I liked the craft, but as this was the first time we'd seen one which was after the time period I was gaming in, I'd dismissed getting one, that was until the series Obi Wan aired and had several in there as well which is set before the time period I'm gaming in.
The model is a 3D print I got off of Ebay, as prints go it was good quality for the size of the piece. It has an interior for the holding bay, now the markings on the outside aren't 100 % accurate to the on screen shots, but close enough for me. For the painting I've kept the weathering minimal. Model wise you can fit 8 models inside, but gaming wise, I would think it would hold 20 models at least going by the episode.
