The Judge, a mixed era hover car. . The "Judge". 50% Industrial Era, 50% Future car, 100% Pimp. .
UPDATE 7/25/2011 Now with build instruction, go nuts!
I began working on this about 4 days ago, trying to get the creative juices flowing for the Sci-Fi contest here
I started with the front, and at that point my intention was to make a space John Deere tractor. I finished the engine housing on the front and set it down for a night, the next day I came back and started conceptualizing what the back should look like, and the John Deere was dead. I added a longer snout and slimmed down the mid section, I was trying to get the effect that the engine is just gonna take off without the rest of the car, almost ridiculously so.
CAUTION: This is extremely Swooshable! I've freaked my cat out numerous times "swooshing" around the apartment.
I actually spent almost as much time coming up with this little pipe assembly as I did the rest of the car. I knew I wanted to add something steampunkish to keep that industrial effect, I just couldn't come up with a good way to make it look natural. I'm happy witht the final result.
Though very sturdy, alot of the sections are easily removable, allowing quick access for modifications.
Thanks for visiting! Questions, comments, suggestions always appreciated.
