About this creation
The banshee is a voenant vehicle that flies and shoots and makes a funny noise, blah blah blah, you know the drill.

   YES...IT IS COMPLETELLY RED!!!!.



Enlarge image
   Why red? because red pwns blue, and red along with blue is a required color to make purple, people choose one of those two to make theyr covenant vehicles, and I think red is way cooler (it has always been my favorite color), so, there ya go.



Enlarge image
   Reason 2: I have WAY more red pieces than blue ones, so it makes a more accurate and detailed moc, with a better shape.



Enlarge image
   More SNOT and curves than others, for the same limitation of the color.

   Stock footage.



Enlarge image
   I choose to foget EVEYTHING currently used to make banshees, such as having rods to connect every thing, a simple front hinge to lift the top, etc.



Enlarge image
   This allowed me to pack more detail, have less studs, and make a better shape, as far as I have seen, no other banshee has a bottom piece like it should, just flat ones with pieces in the top. in this one the top is connected to the body from the sides, it has no base, everything is SNOT.



Enlarge image
   Also, I will use bumps on the top when LEGO releases a better piece for it, many but those bumps it does have, but they are WAY too angular, and don't for the shape right, not even from the sides, so I decided to soncentrate on making the shape of the side, since I have the pieces to make it, the top is very sleek from doing that.

In conclusion, it's just that most are very angular and not curvy enough, my advice is too try more techniques to make it more curvy, SNOT always helps.

Enlarge image
   By the way, those pieces in the sides that have slices, at first I didn't know if they were lego, but I never collected megabloks or any other brand, and I have seen it's use on brickshelf some times, so I think it's safe to assume it's lego.

And if it isn't i would have put just another studless plate in there, just to show I did have a substitute.

   Stock footage. By the way, if all the talk about SNOT seemed like bragging, sorry, i was just commenting that i tought a lot of banshees use the same techniques and turn out very square/ angular, so I tried to use different ones, and even my old banshee is crap (the page is removed now).

Nice job! I really like the details you put onto the banshee. Also you should try making the new halo banshee space variant.

nice work! a shame the real thing isn't this color, it looks a lot better than purple. :P a few recommendations I'd make (not sure if any of them are even possible): first off, try making the top part a different color. you'll notice that real banshees have something along the lines of a window/viewport thing. second, make the steering fins on the back a bit smaller, and try to add the little notch in the middle. third, I'd try making the plasma cannons a bit more detailed. anyway, excellent work. this is definitely one of the best Banshees out there.

That's a nice banshee, but you're using a lot of images showing the same things over and over again. I miss an image of your praised under side.

Nice! I have been wondering when someone will make a red banshee. So far they are all blue or purple. This one is great. Another reason to go red: Red wunz go fasta!

"the pieces with slices you're talking about are Mega Blok" Really? dang, my box is stained with megablocks, oh well, forgive the blasphemy, you can remove a smiley face out of the rating, hehe, I'm still proud of it tough. Thanks for all the comments guys! (and I'm replying here because i don't want to post the pics again for edting the page).

Good model, better than Saber Scorpion! By the way, the pieces with slices you're talking about are Mega Blok. I know, I have some and they were in a Battleship model of the Pro-Builder series.

Wow... I missed this earlier. This is a really good MOC. I like the coloring alot too; Red>Blue. This is one of the best Banshees I've ever seen, and alot of people make Banshees. You've got the shaping perfect, the implementing of pieces superb, and the guns; totally original. The only possible way it could be better is if it were purple, which is of course out of the question, and maybe some detail decals, but the Banshee is pretty slick anyway, so not much detail is needed. 5/5, keep it up!

BEST BANSHEE EVER, simply put, funny how i've never seen such a detailed banshee until this, especially the wings, which a whole lot of people do by just unsing rods, nice job
