About this creation
I wanted to create my own version of the Warthog because everyone else had one. No seriously, I just really enjoy the Warthog and it is, in my opinion, the most iconic Halo vehicle. I find the new dark grey pieces to be the perfect color for UNSC vehicles, so that was a no-brainer. Hope you enjoy both the regular and gauss cannon versions.
Excellent work--as another commenter noted, the proportions look right compared to many of the others out there. I'm trying to build a Lego Warthog for my 7 yr old. Any chance you can share more about how you did the wheels/undercarriage?
GREAT JOB!! You nailed it. The scale is perfect. I have been looking at the other warthogs on MOC and none of them had it 'quite' right. But you got it in my opinion. Making it 8 studs wide was the right choice. Mini figs fit perfectly. (Because you know we all have to put in our two cents; I would give it a smidge more clearance between the fender wells and the tires to make it look taller.) AWESOME!!
