    Although I haven't played any of the Haloes past Halo 2 (stupid freaking xbox is too expensive for me...), I've always been keeping up with the story, and I consider myself to be a fan of the series.

    I've always liked the design of the UNSC frigates in the series; non-aerodynamic and purely functional; as spacecraft should be. That being said, the Halo 4 redesign took me by surprise at first, but I've come to like it even better!

    I started this model yesterday, and despite its size, I'm finding it hard to include much detail. The only "detailed" pictures I've come across have been the concept art for the ship as well as screencaps of a low-res model. As a result, the final kit may not be as detailed as I'd like it to be, so I may or may not release it.

    What I have so far:

    camera crapped out on me, so I'm using my phone; sorry for the poor quality!

    Just started the testbuild; 12 pages in total.

    Never played any of the games in this series so wasn' t sure what it is supposed to look like, but I like what I see so far. Tuned in to the end. Thanks Rocketmantan, keep up the good work. Been a fan of your work since I ran across it on Daviantart.

    Regards,
    Rick
