RaZR. A hot rod of the future.
About this creation
The RaZR is a heavily modified personal transport of the future. A single pilot is strapped between two massive scram jet engines. Able to reach 5,000 MPH was simply not enough, the RaZR is also complimented with several high velocity vector thrusters to provide unprecedented maneuverability at such speeds. Making the RaZR thee most thrilling ride to fly.



Due to the speed the RaZR flies at the pilot is assisted with a HUD. The display uses GPS and Radar to locate all other flying traffic and through proprietary software, calculate and predict with 99.999% accuracy traffic patterns making it easy for the pilot to navigate safely. It is this software which makes the RaZR more than just a "eye-candy" for the speed junky but an actual viable flying machine.



About the build:



Although, I enjoy making a vehicle of fantasy war with "guns-a-blazing"; I wanted to make a vehicle that wasn't about war. The RaZR is completely devoid of armament. Instead I wanted to build some massive engines (originally I was going to go for VTOL style) and SNOT construction.



Next I wanted the colors to say "fun and fast". Of course, red and black are classic colors for "speed" but not necessarily "fun" (besides which black is horrible to photograph). So that left me with yellow or blue ( the other primary colors. Blue is "cool" thus I picked yellow). Yellow adds the flair of some exotic sports cars, Lamborghini in particular has used yellow for their cars. The green striping added the little bit to say "fun" (besides I like yellow and green together).







Just to show you a little bit of the contruction used to "hang" the engines.

Quoting David Calvet I like the color scheme. The shape is quite nice too...
Thanks. My brother took the time to take note that I'm missing a mini-fig with a back story...
