When troops or supplies need to make it to the battlefield in an efficient manner, the Conspiracy uses the Jolly Roger Drop Ship. It's not much to look at but she'll get you from point A to B in a jiffy. Look! One has just touched down now... take a gander... and then call your Mom!
Men! Listen to Me! Listen to Me! We have just returned from the El-Paso Reich outpost and have discovered that they have an extensive hippie-chick cloning facility there. We lost many men in the recovery of this intel...
It’s all about the smooth backside... when entering the atmosphere of unknown worlds, the Jolly Roger turns upside down and these heat tiles protect the precious cargo from the intense heat of re-entry.
Everyone! We are about to drop behind enemy lines and infiltrate a top secret cloning lab. It is likely that more than half of you will be dead before your feet touch the soil... and that the other half of you will probably be killed or captured and extensively tortured! Woot! Let’s Go!
The Jolly Roger cockpit... A crew of 4 is required to effectively run this ship. A Pilot, Co-pilot, Load Master and a Psychologist. The Psychologist is needed to keep the mental state of the soldiers in check… and to prescribe cheap Internet drug cocktails from Canada.
The pilot controls are actually quite simple in nature and no extensive training is required to command the Jolly Roger. The instrumentation is rudimentary at best, with an airspeed indicator, vertical decent indicator, artificial horizon, fuel meter and ah yes... the LCD picture frame that rotates images of hot hippie babes on a 5 second interval.
Here the Psychologist checks over the atmospheric controls of the Jolly Roger. If the passengers get unruly, he can just turn down the oxygen in the load bay... and just before the doors open, he can pump in an aerosol anaphylactic steroid. Oh Baby…What a rush!
The Load Bay on the Jolly Roger can transport 55 troops into battle. It can also transport 2 jeeps, 1 tank, a mammoth load of salisbury steak… and an elephant, two pigs, a goat and a duck (just incase it’s relevant to you or your mom).
Everyone! Everyone! It is likely that most of you will take your last breath in this forthcoming mission… but as you board this unsightly, sluggish and putrid ship, know that there is a vast supply of peanuts for you to consume en-route.
Men! Before you fall out and load onto the Jolly Roger – It is emphasized that you use the washroom. The door is directly to your rear. The Jolly Roger has no such facilities onboard… and we’re in for a looooong trip.
The mechanic makes the final visual inspection prior to lift-off. He notes a few unfastened bolts, some minor cracks on the external surface, some slimy dark-green liquid dripping down the hull... but that’s all within Conspiracy mechanical tolerances.
That is one SOLID vessel. It looks like it could run through any blockade out there and take whatever the enemy dishes out. Very detailed too. There seems to be a lack of wide shots showing the whole ship from different angles though... I can't see it all at once! Still, great ship, even if I don't like the name much...
This is the Fifth Fifth Conspiracy MOC and your overall standard has been upheld. There's a new fascist in town, your body of work is now well established and Keith's mom is nervous....
I like this MOC, it speaks to me of ruthless supression of peaceful native tribes who never did any harm to anyone (Except the cute young daughters of course), and smuggling of arms to insurgents against peace loving democratic governments...
It has a lot of style points worthy of remark, but I will leave you with just one negative thought... It wasn't designed by Raymond Loewy! So there.
