Caprica Assault Transport

Battlestar Galactica was the basis of the prequel series Caprica.  Not able to capitalise on the popularity of its origin, it was finished off in a hurried fashion, but gave me some inspiration.  The assault transports used in the finale were amazing.

Based on the MH-60 Blackhawk, they were given tilt-jets which were independently articulated, to give control through all flight regimes. I used the Academy kit, and scratchbuilt the jets. The stubwings and other parts came from the spares box, with Galactica-based decals from the Moebius Viper2 kit for national insignia.

The Unit, being from Caprica City, naturally pulls for the Buccaneers, the Pyramid team.
