...well...this galaxy actually. An addicted hobbyist decided to put together a small Starship crew. To go with the crew, a starship was needed; a SMALL starship...

The trouble with small starships is that they look a bit...small so in order to readdress the balance, the starship was miraculously transformed into a dropship by...calling it a dropship instead.
As time progressed and the paint changed from off-white to a flame colour and got thicker and thicker, the enthusiasm waned and the poor little dropship was consigned to the attic for an eternity.
until yesterday when I had to put a box in the attic and was drawn to the box that happened to be right at the bottom of a pile of boxes. Inside the box...was another box! Inside that box were three partially-converted Tau Devilfish and a mysteriously wrapped bundle that needed to be taken down stairs...in the bundle was a poor little dropship with a ghastly paint-job.
There was no way it could stay like that so I threw some Necron Abyss at it and stippled on a few other coats of paint and it ended up like this:

Now the starship crew have a dropship to get them from the 'Galaxy', into the 'Abyss' and onto the planet surface.
The dropship is a very simple conversion. I bought a 10 inch Thunderbird 2 toy (from the motion picture), chopped off the tail's cross-member, filled in the front windows with green stuff, glued a plastic spoon to the top and filled the gaps/built a window frame with green-stuff. Underneath the nose is a Spartan shield that is painted as an observation window. That is all I did.
I think it looks the part...
See you from the port-side observation deck!
