DI Multipurpose Light VTOL Proxy
« on: 28 June 2020, 21:22:34 »
Crowd sourcing a consensus here. Which current IWM VTOL would you think would be a good representation of the DI Multipurpose Light VTOL?
"Halfway down the trail to Hell,
In a shady meadow green
Are the Souls of all dead Troopers camped,
Near a good old-time canteen.
And this eternal resting place
Is known as Fiddlers’ Green...."

The Donar has the double top rotor and a big main gun, I can’t see any other angles on IWM site but it should have some missile pods too, but they shouldn’t be hard to leave out or chop off.

Ye olde fashioned Warrior VTOL is far from a bad choice

Warrior body is probably good, but you'll have to bash up a conventional tail instead of the annular one. Plus the engine pods & jet pods.

If you can source DA ones for a good price, they'll work quite happily too.

Despite DA mini bigness a DI multipurpose should still be smaller than a pinto or a hawk moth no?

They're going to look bigger, true. But then I used them with a bunch od other DA vehicles, and a bunch of the newer, larger IWM 'Mechs, and they don't look bad at all. Wll post some pics tonight.
