Product Description
The Thunderlifter is a large cargo carrier built for shifting heavy loads between orbiting carriers and planetary surfaces, or for point-to-point transport on a world`s surface. With mixed cycle engines capable of operating as rockets or jets it is a well specified craft, able to carry 110 Metric tonnes on a VTOL mission and 140 tonnes when runways are available. The ship was designed by a joint Kudai and human team, and is intended to be operated by both humans and Kudai without modification. It has a medium orbit capability and can transport a full load to planet`s surface, reload and return to orbit without refueling. For orbital stand-by the ship has a 48 hour air supply for 124 people or 1,984 hours with a standard crew of 3 and a cargo load. The air can be replenished from the jet intakes when in atmospheric flight and this takes only nine minutes, or twenty minutes if contamination filtering is required.

This Poser model works in Poser 5 and upwards and has the following features:
  • Detailed cockpit with ambient illuminated screens

  • Interior and exterior doors that open

  • One dial to open/close the landing gear doors and lower/raise the gear

  • Landing gear nosewheel can be steered for realistic taxiing images

  • Engines swivel for orbital braking and V/STOL operation

  • Smart-prop seating for troop carrier operations

  • 48 or 72 seats for combined loads of troops and cargo or 120 seats for troops only

  • Tail turret with multi-barrel cannon is a conforming figure; this can be parented to other vehicles or buildings/sets for use independent of the Thunderlifter

  • Poses to position M3, V3, V4 and the Freak in cockpit seats and cargo bay to make scene building easier

  • Preset Cameras; use them as they are or as starting points

  • Highly detailed textures for close-up use or large renders

  • Three paint schemes, each in peacetime and wartime versions, two with nose-art and one without, making six variations in all

  • Pilot`s helmet smart-props for M3, V3, V4 and The Freak; these can be used with other figures with manual repositioning

  • Optional smart-prop exhaust flames

  • The large size of the Thunderlifter makes it realistically possible to put two large vehicles in the cargo bay or several smaller ones. The ship is large enough and detailed enough to withstand close-up use and will render well in a wide range of lighting. The multiple paint schemes provided enables you to show more than one Thunderlifter in an image without them being identical. The three paint jobs provided even have different serial numbers, so that the Thunderlifters closest to the viewer, where that number might be readable, still look subtly different. Best of all the shape is realistic and aerodynamic, with undercarriage that looks heavy enough to take a significant weight.

    The Thunderlifter also works in DAZ Studio but needs manual adjustment to materials for a good appearance.
