Here is a Brute Chopper from Halo. It is a vehicle with both wheels and hover technology, and has the ability to ram and destroy smaller vehicles. I spent a lot of time on this to get the details right.
About this creation
Here are the markings on the sides. I looked the Chopper up on google, and found the gold markings in the front, and the brown ones closer to the back.
These are the Brute Chopper's guns. I spent some time on trying to get them just right, having them half covered by the plates over and under them.
This is the front of the chopper, meant for ramming. I put the plates with sharp edges in front of the wheels, just like the game.
In this top veiw, you can see that the wheels are almost touching, and the side plating stays on the side. I have seen several Brute Chopper MOCs with the side plating over the wheels.
Here is a clear image of the side plating, guns, and cockpit. I know my Master Chief isn't the greatest, but this MOC is for the vehicle, not the guy.
In this side veiw of the cockpit, you can see the seat, controls, and hoverpad. The handles are a little big for a person, and the seat is too far back to sit in comfortably. That is because this was desgined for Brutes, which are much bigger than people. The post-it note is just there to hold it up. I probably should have used clear pieces, but you probably wouldn't have noticed the sticky notes anyway if I hadn't wrote about it.
The Chopper's wheels can rotate to the sides, up, or down with the cockpit staying perfectly upright. Instead of taking various pictures of the Brute Chopper going up and down hills or turning, here is the cockpit bent at an irregular angle.
In my blurriest picture, you can see the blades on the sides of the cockpit, and the booster engines on the side plating of the wheels.
Here is a veiw of the cockpit. The handles and chair are now noticably large. I don't know what the thing that looks like an exhaust vent in front of him is supposed to be, but it is definatly in the game. There is also the faint gray button underneath it.
The cockpit is much clearer without the driver. Those four studs that the driver sits on are the only four showing on the entire model. When the driver is sitting down, the MOC is completely studless.
Here is a nice shot of the hoverpad to keep the back half up. One of the reasons I started building this was because that piece fit so perfectly. I could have made the bottom better-looking, but I don't think it's important enough to bother with.
The underside of the wheels isn't very pretty. This provides a clearer veiw of the booster engines and the side blades.
A bottom/side veiw shows all of the details on the wheel plates. This took me some time to complete.
I would finish this off with a picture of the Brute Chopper destroying enemies by ramming and shooting them, but this is my first halo vehicle. You may think the colors are too garbled, but this is accurate to the real thing. I have actually never used a Brute Chopper. I don't have Halo 3, but this looked cool, and I used google images and youtube videos to see how it looked and worked.
