This is my UNSC Vulture from the RTS Halo Wars on the 360. It's probably my largest MOC to date, but is also probably the coolest.
About this creation
The vulture is the UNSC's "uber" unit in the Halo Wars RTS. It's also probably one of my favorite vehicles from the franchise. The craft took surprisingly well to being visualized in Lego. I was honestly very surprised with how well it turned out. Now if Lego would only make an army green colored piece set... Any way have a look at these pics and tell me what you think.
It is crewed by 6, just as the Halo Wars field manual states.
The autocanon turrets on the front rotate in almost all directions. I added a couple pieces to make them a little more "powerful"
The engines where the toughest part, but I did my best to check the craft out in-game, and it's just a big rectangle.
A better look at the rear. You can see the rotating missile turrets on the top here.
The shape turned out very well, I think it may be a little longer than scale, but it looks sweet so I didn't care.
You can see the "retractable missiles" for the barrage attack.
Yes, the cockpit piece is from a 2005 Jedi starfighter, it seemed to fit the desired shape very well.
probally the best vulture out there or possibly the only one and unsc owns the covys
The Arbiter .

i am not a big fan of the U.N.S.C in fact i hate them but this is absolutely awsome, it would be an honor for you to be in my group, and if you do this well with human lego's i cant wait to see your covenant stuff.
I'm glad that most people are liking this model. As far as those who don't like the colors, sorry you can't buy an abundance of Olive green Legos, lol. And I will always have studs visible on my models because thats what makes it Lego, plus I'm not going to by a ton of smooth tiles especially for a large project like this.
