This is my first Halo ship, the Heart of Midlothian.
About this creation
Although not all the way finished, I wanted to show my version of the Heart of Midlothian. I have the top half done, but I ran out of parts. (Bricklink time!)
These next couple photos are not mine, they are the concept artwork and reference photos courtesy of Bungie.
Here is the lower portion of the front, with the dual MAC cannons (Magnetic Accelerator Cannon).
I even added a couple Lego Lifelites to make part of the ship glow. The buttons are underneath a panel on the top.
This photo shows a topside light, and my idea of the location of the Shiva Class nuclear missile bays (bottom right hand corner).
...and 2 lights in the command deck.
Until next time!
Quoting El Barto !
I see that you joined the Rocket Surgery group! Are you done with this and working on some backgrounds? This looks wicked!
Actually...I tore it apart. It had some structural problems, and i could tell that adding more weight would just make it sag a little more than it should. When I get more black parts, I will remake the ship using a better internal structure.

I love it, but where did it come from, I never heard of it...
Good question. The Heart of Midlothian was a key destroyer in the Battle of Algolis. A couple years ago, a man by the name of Frank O'Connor wrote a short story, "Midnight in the Heart of Midlothian", which was turned into a 5(?) part animation that could be viewed via Halo Waypoint. The story followed an ODST named Michael Baird who finds out he has cancer. The doctors tell him the procedure should only take around an hour, but in the middle of his treatment, the Covenant overrun the ship. He wakes up to find out that he is one of the last people alive. In such an event, AI should activate a self destruct sequence, but it can't harm a living human. So Michael Baird tricks an Elite into running him through with an energy sword, and the AI is able to annihilate the fleet with the following explosion. The ODST was hailed as a hero for his selfless service.
Looks pretty cool, Dude! But it's tough taking pictures of black mocs. Most say a black background is best for some reason, and I guess it works. I found that photoediting is the easiest way to deal. There's a group if you're interested:
