I have a couple of question regarding the drop pod model
1) Can you measure from anywhere on any ramp for deploying your models within 1" or must it be 1" from the hull?
These others most likely will be answered by #1 but
2) if the pod explodes, is the d6" explosion measured from the hull or the ramp? (rules, not fluff sense plz)
3) must opponents stay more than 1" from any part of the ramp when moving, or just the hull?
The model is what the model is. So according to what I can find, the ramps are part of the model and thus disembarking, opponents movement, and explosion would be measured from any part.
I am participating in a local tournament, so I would ask for references in your replies. Thank you for your answers!

I believe in all cases it's measured from the hull. Look on page 67 of the BRB and you will see that you measure 2" from the hull, not the deployed doors. The access point does not change, as in it is still measured from the same place.

1) You disembark within 2" of access points the access points of a drop pod are the ramp openings, not the ramps themselves.
2) The explosion is measured from the hull.
3) You must stay 1" away from the vehicles hull.

This discussion was settled at our club by giving the analogy of the Rhino/Razorback back ramp. When the Rhino explodes it's from the vehicle itself, the doors wouldn't count. So in the case of a drop pod it would be the same.
