OK guys, a quick review for today: the red UNSC Hornet Attack set! The Hornet is one of my favourite vehicles so I’m excited to write about it. This 265-piece set includes an exclusive red Hornet, Covenant Battle Platform, a red UNSC Pilot with M6D pistol, a red Hayabusa with Katana, and a Covenant Jackal with a Carbine and shield. Wow; that’s a lot of stuff in one box.
I’ll come out and say that I absolutely love any of our exclusive red sets. The shade of red is just too cool. But this set in particular looks very imposing in red!
The cockpit for the Pilot. The cockpit door is one of the coolest features of this model. It has a very smooth sliding mechanism that lets it open and close rather than flipping open like most models.
The dual VTOL engines in the rear can also rotate 360 degrees!
And the aileron flaps at the back — used to steer the Hornet — both rotate as well.
And that’s it for the Hornet!
Now for the Covenant Tower! There’s actually something I want to talk about here; there’s a part of the instructions that’s a bit vague, so I wanted to show you:
When you attach this piece to the bottom, make sure you only connect it to the top two pieces of this blok as circled; otherwise, it won’t stay attached.
I would not want to be trapped on a tall platform with a Hayabusa sneaking up behind me!
P.S. I hope you all checked out the teaser for Assault on Squad 45 Part 2 already! If not, check it out now!
