Now that the drop pod has a normal kit, this project might not be that useful but if you want to make a drop pod battle company for a friendly apoc game it might be helpful. I made up about 10 of these last summer for such a game. Total cost was less than 1 GW pod. I bought a bunch sandcastle molds, drilled vent holes in the top, covered holes with wiremesh, cut the bottem lips off, and spray painted purple to match my army. I just need to get some transfers on them for labels. Simple but about the correct size and excellent line of sight blockers.
