Heavy Police Patrol Vehicle 2207 "NINOX HP-1"
This is a heavily armed Law enforcement cruiser, for low orbit space and terrestial patrolling, and also escorting diplomatic convoys.
About this creation
This is my very first attempt at Lego for 20 years. so much has changed, and I wanted to explore the possibilities the new parts offer. I must admit I am quite fond of the old classic space colours of grey and blue, so I drew most inspiration from that era.

This vehicle represents a terrestrial police patrol vehicle from the year 2207, with capability to go into low orbit. It has a role similar to todays squad cars, but much more heavily armed, in the future, civil liberties are only a fraction of what they are now. Police rule the streets and skies to maintain law, enforcing the civil codes. Advancements in armaments have meant threats to civilians from criminal elements are frequent, and much more violent than today. Police require firepower to combat this threat, and too deter those who would challenge it.

Inspiration for this vehicle comes from movies such as Blade runner, Fifth element, and Minority report.
Im told I'm a sucker for all things aliens and the similarities to a drop ship are uncanny. but hey, if a design is good it will get used over and over right ? I bet the wheel is still round in another four thousand years...

***DISCLAIMER***I HAVE NEVER PLAYED HALO, I DO NOT OWN AN X-BOX. A PELICAN IS A BIG WHITE BIRD THAT EATS LOTS FISH. I HAVE NEVER SEEN OR HEARD OF SPACESHIP BY THAT NAME BEFORE OR DURING MY DESIGN!



Enlarge image
   The NINOX HP-1 Heavy Police Patrol Cruiser.



Enlarge image
   It is a military spec vehicle, several version exist from scout, command and control , bomber , Fire support, and troop carrier. The law enforcement agencies of the Earth Federation purchased many of these units for urban peacekeeping.



Enlarge image
   The vehicle is powered by the latest generation of hydrogen converters, fossil fuels being outlawed in the petroleum wars at the end of the 21st century. It is also powered by 3rd generation ION engines (under wings) for zero atmosphere conditions.



Enlarge image
   The pressure blow offs from the hydrogen collectors are seen on the top deck (gray), the white communications pod encompasses the various scanning and radar arrays required. Armoured radiator covers are concealed next to the comms pod.



Enlarge image
   The front cowells of the Hydrogen convertor intakes. It is a low pressure system not requiring massive surface area for intake, keeping them low profile and recessed. Conventional blue red lighting is also used as agreed by the Earth Federation and colonies.



Enlarge image
   At the rear, above the nacelles is the deck gun, a directional EMP, most suitable for air to air pursuits. Also can be seen the directional exhaust nozzles below the main engine venturies.



Enlarge image
   Nestled between the nacelles is the condensate exhaust. This by-product of hydrogen engines, can have chemicles mixed in to assist in laying a vapour cloud of tear gas, or when there are more significant disturbances of the social code, lethal doses of sulphur dioxide.



Enlarge image
   The vehicle also carries a squad of 6 Earth Federation police troopers. This is the loading ramp they use to access to the dock. You can also see the vertical thrusters used to control hovering. Weapons carried are powerfull enough for them to be classed as a force multiplier, meaning less troops but more firepower.



Enlarge image
   The vertical take of engines are added to Law enforcement vehicles and do not use repulsors as with military variants. Radiation from the repulsor's is unsuitable in urban environments with unshielded civilians.



Enlarge image
   Every lego creation for space needs a greeble channel. All markings are genuine Lego stickers.



Enlarge image
   Forward cannons, various chin guns. Police cruisers need as much lighting as possible, in several wavelengths, for patrolling below the smog line in the urban ground level wastelands. So lights are added to view in all directions.



Enlarge image
   I wanted my MOC to be more than a brick on brick creation, and to have 3d effect with building in angles and outwards, not just on top of each other. The front has an applique armour plating effect that is achieved by unconventional construction.



Enlarge image
   My favourite profile shot, showing the vehicle's sleek silhouette. Even though it is bulky, it has an element of aerodynamic design that is plausible.



Enlarge image
   The loading ramp open, showing the dock interior.



Enlarge image
   Another view of the dock. The six troopers sit 3 on each side, in a ready position. Not shown is the loadmasters seat which is suspended from the roof. (will be added when i get the minifig).



Enlarge image
   Under the rear nacelles, there are a pair of twin turrets for suppression fire. Most suitable for cover when disembarking whilst under fire, or trying to beat a hasty retreat. the ramp and dock is capable of carrying short range armoured vehicles or scout ATV's.



Enlarge image
   Part of the Mil-spec for the vehicle is an escape pod or lifeboat. Pilots are expensive to train, cargo (including troops) are easily replaced. here we see the lifeboat jettison from the main hull.. the wings folding out as it leaves.



Enlarge image
   Here the lifeboat has left the hull, and the wings fully extended. A detail series of pictures of the lifeboat is found further in this series.



Enlarge image
   The dock for the lifeboat in the hull.



Enlarge image
   Another view of the dock.



Enlarge image
   The interior wasnt quite seen as well as I liked to show off the work inside, so I made the front of the ship break away for display purposes. Found further in this series is a detail of that break.



Enlarge image
   The underside of the ship is heavily armoured, to withstand any ground to air fire from small arms or energy burst weapons, and has magnetic shielding embedded. The landing gear is configured in the stable 3 point setting. Also underneath can be seen various vents and lighting points.



Enlarge image
   Detail shot of the front of the hull. once again the aim was to try and eliminate the typical lego dot sockets.



Enlarge image
   The landing gear is fully articulated in the model and can be retracted and stowed in seconds, or extended for display landed. It stows quite snugly into the hull, and articulates using conventional lego build techniques.



Enlarge image
   As mentioned earlier, the underside of the nacelles has twin fire supression turrets, this shot gives a better view, also can be seen is the vapour distributor and the directional exhaust nozzles.



Enlarge image
   This what most people see when they look up from hearing the NINOX aproach. Low pressure Hydrogen engines emit little noise, and makes for silent travel until the last moment when the humm of avionic hydraulics and cooling fans breaks the peace.



Enlarge image
   detail of the hull broken open to view interior. Also a goodcross section pic to see how thickly armoured the hull is.



Enlarge image
   The armoured radiator covers for the coolant fans. Also an avionics PM access point.



Enlarge image
   The lifeboat has 4 rapid burst impulse engines that fire the vehicle at high speed away from the hull of the ship. The canopy can be opened or close no matter the lifeboat in its hull dock or jettisoned.

Amazing doesn't begin to describe this build. The design and balance of detail is fantastic. =And your use of color alone makes me envious. If you have a spare moment, would you mind looking at me most recent Moc (www.mocpages.com/moc.php/255317) and giving me any advice you may have? Thanks!

That's just really impressive. The completeness of this model is fantastic; everything is as functional and realistic as it would be in a high-end sci-fi flick. I especially love your disciplined use of color; everything seems to be exactly the color it would be if this thing were real.

That is awesome. The Lego bug is pretty hard to resist. The detail and function is excellent. How much of that is new pieces and how much is old pieces from your collection? On my builds I've used mostly newer pieces, if you have the time you can check them out. Congrats again on a top build!

amazing. I've always tried to build something like it, but it never turns out right. I really like how you made the cockpit an escape pod and a lifeboat all in one. Very good work. Maybe you could check out some of my moc's and maybe leave a few comments?

Fabulous! It does offer a design "similar" to the pelican, but it is very original. And I believe Bungie used blade runner as a reference when designing their vehicles. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Amazing! The colors are great, but what really stands out is the functionality of the details. I doesn't just have 'lots-o-guns'. It has a wide variety of weapons, each suited to a specific purpose. The interior, though a little bare, is great. I just love how the cockpit turns into a life boat and the docking bay for it is amazingly detailed and realistic, easily my favorite part of the ship. Excellent work! Peace - Patrick

this is an amazing model but 2 things. when the lifeboat leaves, will the torso of the ship fall and explode,or will it land and a troop carrier will com and pick up the cargo ar soldiers?

This kind of talent has been lying dormant for 20 years? Criminal. I never had an extended dark age and with my 27 or 28 fairly continuous years of building practice, I still couldn't build this. So thanks for that depressing thought...
