Ok so a major 7th is 1 3 5 7
lets take the key of D as an example

D F# A C#
1 3 5 7

So a half diminished D would be 1 b3 b5 b7 and would look like this

-x
-6
-5
-6
-5
-x

This is also called a minor 7 flat 5

Now a diminished 7 would be 1 b3 b5 bb7

and the notes would be D F G# B and would look like this

-x
-6
-4
-6
-5
-x

Is that right? ^^

You don't call the 5th interval of a D major scale anything but A. So if its flattened, its Ab. Same applies with C. It's Cb, or C#. It's enharmonically incorrect.

other than the wrong note names as pointed out above... you are correct. Just take note of what the guy above said. Pretend he said it nicely
