Aliens UD-4L Cheyenne Dropship - Rear Landing Gear

For years, actually decades, I've been thinking about the Alien Queen fitting into the rear landing gear bay of the UD-4L Cheyenne Dropship. Sorry for the plot spoil!

I've semi accurately 3D modelled the mechanism of the landing gear, but when I've attempted to animate it into the landing gear bay, nothing fitted. So I've re-modelled it to something that actually works.


The void where the Alien Queen would to had to get in is so small, her head would not of fitted. In fact a Alien drone would of only just fitted. So, plot fail!

I've still got a few modifications to make so that gear nicely fits into each other, but at long last I've got something that actually works!

i'm making the same thing right now. i see you retract part of the rear ski. when I was intending on keeping it all outside.
The opening wings in the centre are proving to be very difficult.
