A Peculiar Bird is the Pelican
Halo's Pelican is a moderately difficult Metal Earth model with 49 pieces on two sheets of metal. "Pelican" is the name given to a series of dropships for the UNSC military and New Mombasa police.
Each Metal Earth model is laser etched in meticulous detail on 11 cm (4.33") metal sheets. Pop out the pieces by hand (or use wire cutters to get especially crisp lines), bend the tabs using needle-nose pliers, and fit them together as shown in the simple pictorial instructions. For maximum dramatic effect, display your model on the LED Display Base or the Solar Spinner (sold separately, see below).
Please note that Metal Earth models have sharp edges and are not suitable for children under 14.
Are you curious...?
Entering service before 2501, the Pelican series of dropships is used by the UNSC Marine Corps, the UNSC Navy, and the New Mombasa Police Department. Most are armed with 70 mm chain guns and some have rockets mounted under their wings. They can also carry Warthogs, Scorpions, or resupply cannisters attached to their tails.
The Halo series for the Xbox is considered one of the best first-person shooters (parents, ask your kids) ever created. The games are set against an interstellar war between humanity and an alien theocracy called the Covenant. "Halo" itself refers to large, habitable superweapons called the Halo rings, which are similar to Larry Niven's Ringworld concept. One of the main characters in Halo is an AI called Cortana...does that sound familiar? Yup, she moonlights as the Windows 10 personal assistant -- the same actress gives voice to both of them.
