I'm a realist at heart, but these builds are just too much fun to ignore. :) "...i'm not the van they think I am at home, oh no no no, i'm a rocket vaaaan..."


Thanks Jasen!

:P

FERRARI ROCKET HYBRID!!!

I have been playing with Car Engine and Rocket Parts to see what kind of an Engine I could come up with. I found that there are endless combinations of CarToon Hybrid Engines. Here is one...

I ended up using parts from a Ferrari Testarossa and an X-Wing Fighter. Here is one of the first Mock-Ups of the final design!

Remember this is CarToon Rocket Science, so anything is possible... B)

FERRARI ROCKET ENGINE!!!

I started with the Ferrari Engine and began adding Rocket Parts. I added strips of plastic on the BiG Rocket Engines so I could Stack other Rocket Parts on top!

Posted Image

I used the Metalic Red Paint to blend the 2 Engines together...

Posted Image

Here is the Engine with Reversed Ferrari Parts and more CarToon Rocket Parts in place. I used The Detailer, on most of the silver Rocket Parts...

Rockets don't breathe air. They don't need intakes. Cool project, though. I always follow your threads.


Thanks Lee!

By the way, ALL of my CarToon Rocket Engines NEED Lots of Intakes and Vents!!!... B)

It's like Star Wars Stuff, if it looks Cool...it's Cool!

Yes, but you are talking about conventional rockets. These are Ira's SOOPERHITEKCARBONGRAPHITEAMMONIUMPOLYMERGOFAST rockets. I can assure you, they need intakes! :D

Now for my good friend on the opposite coast. have you gone full circle in that you undealing a DW? I thought the idea was to put bigger wheels on a scale car, not smaller wheels on a DW. :huh: :D I'm curious to see where you are taking this. I know it will be crazy!

Carry on buddy.



Thanks Dave!
:D

I always thought the Rear Deals Wheels Van Tires were Way Too BiG!

:o

I prefer the "Sleeper" Look for the van, Very Wide Low Tires - Tucked inside the body, with 18,000 Horsepower in the Back... B)

PORTHOLES!!!

I thought Rocket Van Needed some Portholes so, I measured the space and traced a couple of holes...

Posted Image

I started the holes with a #11 X-Acto Blade and then I used a Ream to open up the holes. I have some chrome wheel rings that fit these holes if I decide to add trim to the Portholes later...
