Quick build for the 67th LUGNuts challenge on Flickr: what would a Star Wars spaceship look like as a car.
About this creation
When I read this month challenge for LUGNuts, I just had to contribute something for it. I'm actually not such a big Star Wars fan, but I really liked the idea of taking a spaceship from the Star Wars universe and convert it into a car. The tricky part was to get the wheels nicely integrated in the sleek spaceship designs. When I saw the Naboo Starfighter, I got the idea to flip the complete front wingsection 90 degrees to both the left and right side, so the round engines at the tip of the wing could become the wheels on a car. Once I had the idea I quickly built this model.
It's a bit wide, but as a consequence it's very stable, being able to reach high speeds. To make it streetlegal I even included some lights.
The reason why it became so wide is that I still wanted to give it the spirit of a spaceship with wings.
It was quite fun to do, and something different for me as well.
