CapnRex is still away so guest reviewer rancorbait has provided this text:
Today we have another mini model, a LAAT/c (Low Altitude Assault Transport/carrier), or more simply, Republic Dropship. This vehicle, used by the Republic to transport heavy artillery and other cargo, is only seen for a few brief moments towards the end of Episode II: Attack of the Clones and in several Clone Wars episodes.
This somewhat obscure, but still easily recognizable ship, is quite accurately captured using just eleven parts, although I think it could do with one more white 1 x 3 slope to fill the gap between the two engines, but it's not a big deal. The rear half of the dropship is constructed in a way similar to the Republic gunship from day eight, with the exception of the suitably long wings which are also narrower. The cockpit, which is situated on the front of the craft, is effectively recreated using a trans-black 1 x 1 slope piece.
Perhaps the best part about this model however, is that the AT-TE revealed yesterday can be attached to the underside of the vehicle without altering either of the models, just like in the film, which really adds to the accuracy of the vehicle.
Overall - 4.5 - This accurate representation of the ship is an excellent model, and when combined with yesterday's AT-TE, is even better. The only thing I dislike is the rather bland looking front end, some color (either dark blue or dark red) would add a lot of character to the vehicle in my opinion.
