Introducing the Terran Vulture from the PC game: Starcraft II. The Vulture is made available through the story campaign in the Cutthroat mission. If you really have no idea where it's from, you will find more information if you go to the starcraft wiki. There you will also find the reference pics I used. If you're interested in building it, I have instructions on my web site (for free) at www.brickformula.com. The parts list will come soon.
About this creation
Here it's in red.
Here it's in blue.
Onto the details:
Here is a closeup of the grenade launchers in the closed position.
Here it's opened and ready to fire. The Vulture does not open like that exactly, but to replicate the actual mechanism in this scale is difficult. The way it's supposed to work is that the side panels open and the grenade launcher pops up and extends the barrel. Since that won't fit in this one, I improvised to just using revolvers.
Here beside the pilot is a stick. I added that in there because in the game pilot portrait, you'll see the pilot pull a stick. What it's for, I have no idea.
In other fan art of the Vulture, the turbines can be tilted in just about any direction. So I added that feature in there anyway.
Here is the top view. Notice the turbines are "tilted" and not parallel to each other. If you play the game and you take a careful look, you'll see that the turbines are like that. Imagine my surprise when I built it parallel, and it didn't look the same as the references.
My next post will be of the Goliath. As of this posting, the instructions are almost finished. Hopefully soon you'll see my post in MOCpages, however, there are more information on that on my web site at www.brickformula.com
