UNSC Hornet
My model of the Hornet from HALO 3.
About this creation
The Hornet took me a lot longer to make then I expected (2 days), but I was trying to get every part of it looking exactly how it was in the game. I spent most of that time in forge mode studying the shape and then carefully putting pieces together. I went through quite a few designs for the base because of the way the missile pods, the joints for the rear landing gear, and the jump seats are all right on top of each other, but I think my design turned out well. The cockpit was pretty straight forward; I only had some minor trouble getting the joysticks to fit in properly. The tail was the last part I did, and I had to redo it a couple of times. I realize that it should be slanted up slightly, but when I tried it got slanted too much and ended up being much better flat. As far as I know, the only flaw is the engines. Sure, they're too small, but I really like the printed pieces I used for the propellers and it doesn't look that bad so I just left it alone. I tried to put as much detail into it as I could; notice the red, light blue, and yellow lights, landing gear, the yellow stripe on the back, and the little black piece on the top between the guns. There were no megablocks used, not even bley or light bley. Tell me what you think!

the underside-you can see how it's built!

"flying" view

front view

side view-notice the air vents below the red warning labels

An ODST with a Rocket Launcher in the jumpseat

The cockpit! notice the joysticks

(EDIT: Please note that the cockpit wasn't fully reattatched after the last picture.) UNSC forces! From left to right: a marine with a Spartan Laser, an ODST with a Rocket Launcher, Sargeant Johnson with a Sniper Rifle, and a pilot with a BR. Don't forget to leave a review!

Thanks so much for the reviews! It made the front page of highest rated! Woohoo!
Anyway, a lot of you have been asking for instructions. I have absolutely no idea how to make them. Look at the pics, especially the first one. If you're still having trouble, write a review telling me where and I'll take some partially disassembled or differently angled pics.
P.S. Once Saber-Scorpion makes his Hornet, I'll probably use his engine design and redo the top half. Also, I've already tweaked the bottom half a little bit, so you should see a V2 soon!

Update!(6-02-2008):I changed the main photo. You should see some nice improvements (mainly the front, I finally had a good idea for that part).

Love it! At first, I thought it was slightly too big, until I remembered that the Marines don't stand on those beam things coming out of the hornet, they stand on the small platforms adjacent them. So, good job! Instructions are a hassle to make, but if you can make them, I'd be greatly obliged. Edit: Also, where'd you get that clear Jedi Starfighter windshield?

Oh wow, I guess I never reviewed this. Anyway, this is one of the best Halo MOCs out there, even comprable with Saber-Scorp's! The Hornet itself I would say is very near perfection, but you could work on the minifigs a bit, if you're willing to use decals anyway. And check out the BrickForge space marine armor. Anyway, keep up the great work, I look forward to seeing more of your MOCs, and maybe I'll see you at BrickWorld again in 2009 :)

Excellent, excellent work! I just love how you used all those hinges to attatch the skid pads, and the idea for the nose is great! (Just wondering, are the engines supposed to be that small? 'Cause if they need to be bigger, I have a MOC that will show you how...it'll be posted soon. Come and see!)

Ah, more Hornets are appearing out there, I see! At this rate, there'll probably be 20 before I'm done making mine. This one is very good, with the only not-so-good part being the engines. The rest of it looks great. Good color coordination, nice cockpit design. Keep it up!

This is all really well done, everything from the weapons to the marines to the actual vehicle itself! I am willing to say that this is the best version of the Hornet that I have seen. There is so much accurate detail that you added that I am noticing things on your design that I hadnt even noticed in the game until now. Awesome work, 5 stars! Cant wait to see more from you in the future.

Looks quite real, good job, however I dislike the grey within the cockpit, and engines could be abit beefier, and are fairly simple techniques, but is still a nice model. Good job.

Wow. I really need to make one of these before I get completely outgunned. The level of detail on this is astounding! I didn't even know there were that many details.
