I almost cheered when I loaded the next pages of this topic and saw (1) the engines and (2) the rear wings, especially after you teased us beforehand. What an incredible project and it is turning out incredible. I'm following along so I don't miss a single step.

I may have missed it, but, I am wondering about how you plan to paint it.
My two cents worth: every time I look at it, I envision a "Sox & Msrtin" type paint scheme.
Can't wait to see it finished.

 

Thanks for the suggestion David!

 

I am thinking about Silver with Blue stripes and Gold Decals, but I'm not sure yet... B)

AERO SEAT!!!



The seat is from the Monogram Aerotech kit. I used several strips of plastic to add arms, front, bottom, rear and sides...

Here is the dash after a little sanding and filing.

This looks like the outlandish kind of hover-car designs I make with LEGO, really cool to see you make a realistic representation.

 

I hope you inspire people to make more of these!

NO WHEELS!!!



The Landing Gear is from an AMT Star Wars X-Wing Fighter. I had to shorten the Rear Gear to get the right height...
