About this creation
The A-95 Kingfisher dropship remains the go-to vehicle for troop movement and deployment in full-scale engagements.
While smaller squads often deploy from shuttles, given that Kingfishers cannot fit in the bay of Essex Mk. II class cruisers, the Kingfisher is still used for deployment from assault transports and carriers.
The Kingfisher lands securely on three squat landing skis.
The rear troop hatch allows for easy deployment of personnel into combat zones.
The Kingfisher's troop bay comfortably seats three per side, for a total of six, but can squeeze up to ten troops standing if needed.
The Kingfisher is popular with pilots given its responsive and tight handling, stemming from its array of maneuvering jets.
The two-seat Kingfisher cockpit has the pilot station at the fore-centre, with the gunnery station at the rear-right.
The Kingfisher has a sensor suite mounted under the right wing, and a small plasma gun under the left. Its main weapon is the chin-mounted autocannon, used for clearing landing zones.
The Kingfisher also exists in the A-95a Gunship variant, which replaces both wing-mounted weapons with missile pods, and slings further autocannons both under the wingtips and on the hull and tail.
Well Done!!! Love the styling, and use of very common bricks and elements. Thinking about using this as a template for something bigger. How many pieces? how long did it take, and can you forward instructions?

I'm glad you like it, and flattered that you're interested in building the model. Unfortunately I don't have any instructions, though I could likely put some together.
