WIP image of the T-6 Shuttle from Clone Wars.

Have to figure out landing gear arrangements that make sense.
Also boarding ramp, aft would be best from an internal arrangement but of course the show has a forward facing arrangement (internal space means there's got to be a ladder or lift arrangement up to maindeck level, not the quickest way to board)

Wow, that's going to have some wacky looking landing gear. But, my suggestion:

Image

the wing-mounted landing struts should be pretty easy, they can fold down, have a few supporting hydraulics/electrical actuators for support and movement. The center body one's going to be a bit more complex, maybe have it be folded in half while stored, and meshes cleanly with the hull. Folds down, and extrends (probably with a few degrees of incline for stability?

And a big folding ladder? Or small winch platform that deploys by the airlock?

Thinking it'll probably sit very low to the ground at the stern, with maybe a single big pad underneath the rear.

The top bulge I'm reserving for machinery, hyperdrive etc so the bottom can be pretty empty with stairs up at the front (of the bulge) to the maindeck and a hatch/ramp out the back is the best use of the space, it's pretty narrow I had wanted some cargo room down there, will explore swapping stairs to decend forwards too.

could do an extreme forward slope? have all the interior walkways be self-tilting to make the entire thing one big stair...everywhere....

There's supposed to be a fold out hatch on the right side forwards, only seen in the end of Clone Wars and completly useless for anything other than hover docking to platforms, but I've managed to fit it in.

Actually made a good start on some internals, shocked myself, thought those days were long behind me!
