[Advice requ] Training to sell (Gila/drones)

A bit of 'background'. This is essentially an experiment for me to test viability of character bazaar. I'm not in a 'hurry to sell', 'mad about Isk' guy. But I do want to experience this character training/selling side of Eve.

As such, I embarked upon a small experiment, which is here:

The idea started off with training to character to use an RLML Gila to a decent degree. The project is as follows:

1. Stop drone training after Drone Avionics V (currently 4M in drones and all specialisations IV - only lights and mediums - the heavy/sentry are at IV).

2. Stop Missile training at Light Missile specialisation IV (no HAM/HML - 2.3M in missiles)

3. Both cruiser skills to IV

4. With the next remap, I'll focus upon Basic Armor (to be able to fit T2 damage control/remote armor rep), Shield (lvl 1/2 skills to V and others to IV), rigging (shield to IV, rest to three), Engineering & Navigation & Targetting. This will leave me with one bonus remap for later. Essentially, the character will have Mastery LvL IV in a Gila except medium missiles.

My questions are:

1. Is the training plan sound?
2. If any character bazaar gurus would like to share their expertise on whether I should target another ship, etc, I would be most glad.

Training chars to sell on bazaar is very tough; reselling is def the way to go imo. With the recent gila nerf, i dont think youll get a good ROI.

If you are REALLY not in hurry, you will always sell the char with profit.
It depends more on your marketing / negotiation / sale skills than on the char's skills Big smile

Do not focus to much on Gila.
Are there any other Faction and T1 ships with Launchers and Drones?
Little sister of the modern Armageddon for example?

I do not know the Amarr Cruisers, but there should be a Drone Missile Armor cruiser as well.

The Amarr lineup does have a few choices, but it is more 'missile + armor' or 'drone + armor'

There is Sacrilege (HAC) that does use medium drones, but it is essentially a HAM boat.
There is Curse (Combat Recon) that has launchers + medium drones but it is essentially a cap warfare/combat recon

Alternatively, I can keep training drones (Heavy + Sentries), train up medium guns plus support skills and aim for Ishtar/Proteus with Gallente Cruiser V.
