Summary

UPDATE
I reworked the port and starboard hangars for enhanced printing quality. It seems there was also a slight error as far as the mirroring of the front and end pieces of the hangars is concerned. My apologies!

This is a Mule-class mecha dropship forthe Heavy MetalGods role-playing game. This very one is the Armed Transport Vessel (ATV) "Dohoora", commandeered by Capt. Raphael Okita.

It's the first model of a series of official vehicles and mecha for the HMG RPG and intended for using as a gaming miniature. I hope you'll enjoy it!

Instructions

You can print the DOHOORA either as one piece or in several sections. When printing as one piece, I'd recommend arranging the model vertically and "nose-up" for better printing quality. Make sure to print with support!

I like this model. I have absolutely no idea what the game is, but it looks to be a great looking sci-fi ship.

The Heavy MetalGods Role Playing Game is a pet project of mine I've been working on for about 25 years. Maybe you know R. Talsorian's MEKTON II pen & paper rpg - that was where everything started, but it soon began a life of its own.
HMG (for short) is a bit MS Gundam-gone-Star Wars-gone space opera. There's an empire (imagine the SW Empire being the good guys), a Federation, independent star-faring nations and a vast galaxy with only one spiral arm explored and the east side of said galaxy being kind of separated by an extremely dense ribbon of stars called the Angmahn Ribbon. Then there's some ancient civilisations, multiple forerunners and of course some freaking huge battle robots inspired by both MS Gundam and HeavyMetal L Gaim (hence the name) and Five Star Stories.
Well, I guess I'm a nerd anyway! XD

What is this stuff, anyway?

This is a mecha-dropship from the mecha role-playing game Heavy MetalGods. This very ship has been the backdrop for lots of game sessions during game development and playtesting, so it deserves a little backstory:

The Mule-class dropships were until recently the backbone of the Mobile Divisions of the Grand Empire. Although technically part of the Imperial Army, they were attached to the Imperial Navy. During the Frontier Wars over the past 30 years, they formed the premier assault force for planetary invasions. The original design was upgunned with up to three additional gun turrets which enabled the dropships to provide heavy covering fire for the disembarking mecha. After the Fontier Wars, the Mule-class was decomissioned and de-militarized and the ships were sold to civilian shipowners.

The design is loosely based on the Templar Freighters of the 1980s' movie The Ice Pirates - at least that's where the idea of two lateral cargo bays comes from - six 70 feet tall mecha do have to be stashed away somewhere! I tried to give the ship a somewhat functional, "no frills"-look, so it doesn't sport any fancy decorations, gothic arcs, greeblies and such.
