This week has been one of much work. Not only in school, but I have been restless at night and managed to build this in some dark, dark hours of the night. I've been working on this model for weeks and it hails from the Halo Universe. Specifically, the model was meant for Halo Wars, but rumor has said it sadly shall no longer make an appearance (I hope this changes). At any rate, the Sparrowhawk is an air to ground flying fortress with 3 missiles on each wing, 2 pairs of twin auto-cannons that descend from the wings and serve has the landing gear too, and lastly a dual auto-cannon mounted under the cockpit. My goal in making this was to be very accurate in form, if not in colors, but I think my color scheme used kicks tail anyways. In the game it is supposed to be a dull green/grayish color. So the cool stuff/functions about the vehicle are that the guns can pivot as well as the tail, both vertically and horizontally. Additionally, the rotor shafts (main propulsion system) can spin 360 degrees within their area for all the thrust vectoring required, take off, landing, so forth. My only personal complaint is that I do not have bigger rotors, since they are clearly bigger in the reference shots, however they still look great and can pivot. My favorite areas are the cockpit which is made like an Apache Helicopter with pilot and gunner sitting in elevated positions. Getting that windshield right... was... a pain. My other favorite part is the wing mounted landing gear/twin auto cannon hull pieces. They just look fierce! Alright so please enjoy this and feel free to leave comments. Now I need to eat some breakfast...
Thanks Crimso :), and Firas, Danny, and Jason (my man). I am happy with it, but I think I shall be returing to some more classic space and maybe a Star Wars vehicle or two. That seems to be my area of expertise. Look for my space police ship based off of this in the future. Cheers
Hey Kyle, we haven't talked in a long time. I think your SparrowHawk is actually one of your best creations. My only real bugger is the underside fuselage looks a littile bulky compared to some shots I have seen. I actually have built one, but it is missing the missles on the wings, and t can only fit one person in it, but I'd say yours is better in size, detail, and scale, so congrtas on a job well done.
Well I appreciate the comment, but you are a little vague. If it's not my best work then please explain why... if you are comparing this to my other works, like the Star Wars, than yes, I agree those are better. If you are comparing this to other lego SparrowHawks- let the work speak for itself without sounding too boastful.
