Road Runner Civilian Armoured Technical (CAT)
Small militarized hover car.
About this creation
Another shelf princess that's avoided the camera until now, this little ride was my attempt at making a hover car inspired by Land Rovers and Toyota Hilux trucks converted into 'technicals.' The front grill, bush guard and windshield were the attempt, the rest is more sic-fi. It's also my first attempt at side-by-side mini fig seating with a single stud width between them. That reduced the overall dimensions and prevented it from scaling up.

THE BUILD

It's made in two halves. The odd-numbered seven stud width caused alignment problems with the eight stud wide rear bed. My solution was jumpers and a 1x1 SNOT brick. That means that, again, my moc is held together with a single stud front to back.

WORLD BACKGROUND

Variants of this vehicle date back to the first colonization of Jinan. It is ubiquitous and used by all in one form or another. As a utility vehicle, it is tough and simple to maintain. Imports ceased during the First Jinan War leading to local manufacture of this simple vehicle. Originally produced by Nissota, later models never sold as well as the original still mass produced by local private industry.

As a military vehicle, the reliability and simplicity of the design led to simple modifications as a utility vehicle and scout car. It is classified as a Civilian Armoured Technical (CAT) and in wide use by bandits. Normal armament is a heavy machinegun or ATGM. Applique armour is frequently added to the aft to protect the more vulnerable components of the polarity drive.

After years of use and local manufacture, no two Road Runners are ever alike.



The example shown is a company owned vehicle of Kinsen with private security contractors as crew.
