Rear view. You never really see the back of the pod in-game, so I took some artistic license, and made it look how I thought it should.
Here you see how the doors are hinged, as well as the ODST snugged inside, next to his Assault Rifle.
This here shows the drag chute which deploys from the top of the pod. I'm not sure whether the line connecting the chute is supposed to be solid or slack, but the concept art makes it look like a telescoping metal rod.
This is the same as the main image, but I'm doing these in sequence, and the main picture goes here.
...And, this one shows the pod after the main door has blown off, and the ODST has clambered out.
Hey guys, please do not ask for instructions. People always ask, and I never make instructions. I'm getting tired of it, ok? I might post an exploded view later.
I know this is going to be an extremely annoying question, but assuming (since you've stated that you are going to POSSIBLY make an exploded view), may I copy/use the design to produce ODST Drop Pods? Very annoying I know, but hey, at least I was able to figure put the design without instructions. Though anyway, on to compliments. Amazing work on this work of Halo in lego. It's amazing to see how far the Lego Community has come and I can easliy say, that this is the BEST ODST SIEOV out there. Unbelievable work, fabulous design, fantastic work, can only imagine the effort. Beautiful creation. Amazing....Simply Amazing.
Needless to say, this is BA. The hinges and details are supurb!
And it was BA enough for me to sit down and LDD it. the Vents forced me to take a yellow scheme.
Tekka contact me if you want the LDD file, since afterall, it is your creation.
there is 20 angels in the world, 10 of them are sleeping, 9 of them are playing, and one is reading this post! if you dont post this to ten other mocs, the angel will appear in your room tonight, and steal all your lego and kill you!

How did you make the ODST trooper
That's redundant! ODST Trooper = Orbital Drop Shock Trooper Trooper. Anyway, it's just some new Agents armor with the logo Brasso'd off, and a new Space Police helmet, with a trans-blue head underneath.
Pretty cool! Loved how much detail and concentration you put into it.
I like it

wow.. Great job! I made one of these a month or two ago because i couldn't see any decent ones anywhere.. But this is brilliant. I love the parachute.
@ CJ: the helmet is from a new space police set, and the armour is from the new lego agents. It's nice to see that that helmet works quite well on an odst
Wow. John Moffatt asks for instructions when it says not to... fail. But yeah, this pod is great, but if I remember what I saw correctly, the back is the same shape as the front, otherwise it would cause weird aerodynamics.
Some terrific building here. The ODST is very detailed and really looks almost accurate to the ones in the game. Great presentation of the Drop Pod. I wish they made the game for PS3, but they don't :( ~ Ghostman :)
