The Elite Police Hover Van is a modification of an existing LEGO creation - the Elite Police Van. The intent of this MOC is to take solid minifig police vehicles and make them flight/space-worthy.
About this creation
This is my second hover conversion of an official kit vehicle. This hover conversion is a bit different than my first in that it features "nacelles" that rotate to provide the illusion that they are a key element in directing the flight of the vehicle.
Overall I could have gone a couple of different ways. The "lift" units on the bottom evolved from wanting to put landing gear. Instead the "lift" units provide a landing base as well as a means of providing lift.
I tried to keep the nacelles as tight in with the vehicle as possible. Unfortunately I do not own the museum kit, and I have not had the opportunity to see how well this would turn out outside of the designer.
