D77-TC Pelican Dropship
Last update 2010
These photos are all pretty blurry, they were taken using a phone
The pelican. Arguably the coolest vehicle in Halo. Such a shame we can never fly it around. In fact I think there's an easter egg in Reach that lets you do so I believe. Anyway, you could say that this is my biggest single creation in my collection. Or used to be in my collection, since now it is taken apart. I would be happy to recreate it if it weren't so impossible.
You probably would be surprised that I built this starting at the back, slowly working my way to the front. This process took ages considering the size of this beast and left lots of room for guess work regarding the size of the front, which took like... ages.
I think you can probably determine what I mean by front. All those sloped angles. You can see the missile launchers on the sides of those bulky engines which could probably use some work. As I look at those I notice the wings are sagging on their own weight, haha.
Top shot! Would you say this pelican is reminisent of the real version? You can see all the flappy wing-bits which were actually added on last. I changed a lot of things after taking these photos, especially the wing designs. Trust me, they looked even better afterwards.
Speaking of changing things, the interior was also changed a lot after these photos were taken. There aren't any of the seats, doors or the turret that I added on afterwards. I would take another photo but... Pelican = disassembled
