What are you talking about? What's so awful and despicable about a comfy, durable, long-lasting relaxing cruise ship that not only crosses the mobi dessert but gets kids to school in any weather and also doubles as a pickup truck when you move or need replacement parts? Why would you need any other car? Maybe not if you live in N.Y.C., there's taxis and no place to park...
Great sculpture man.
And yeah I also have an suv, (Expedition) which has been very far off the beaten path ,multiple times and been unstoppable in winter as well as getting used to haul stuff inside that wouldn't fit in a car or even smaller suvs.
I venture to say from certain angles, it looks like a Suburban/Yukon.
Even without stars, it looks great. I bet this would actually sell pretty well to offroad/suv fans as a desktop sculture mounted on some wooden base.
Most impressive and well thought-out. Did you model it after any specific vehicle, or is this more the "generic" rounded truck shape we see in most modern SUVs? I agree with Nannan in that white stars would make the pattern pop more. If you have some small white "flower" pieces, those work great.
Nice MOC Sean. Americans like SUVs for a couple of reasons. First the height of the drivers seat compared to cars as well as the mass of the vehicle give the impression of safety (valid or not). They are also seen as status symbols since generally they are more expensive than cars. By the way Shannon my dad has taken his SUV off road several times.
At least you yanks can claim to have invented SUV-obsession. Here in Australia they're everywhere too because we've got no culture of our own so we just copy yours-that's even sadder! Anyway, three cheers for topical sculpture on MOCpages!
You live in New York City, correct? Of course you wouldn't understand. If you lived in the sticks like me, it would make a bit more sense. What I don't understand is people who buy SUVs that will never take them off-road, which is ostensibly what they were designed for. (Yes, I own an SUV, and yes, I've taken it 4-bying into the mountains.)
I've really liked SUVs. I'm more of a capital flagship person myself. Ah, in the cold reaches of space... That's the life. Hey Sean, did you make this as for a request or just cause' you were bored?
Great MOC, I have two SUV's and love them both. Why you wonder is there a obsession? Some are about just having the biggest and best. Some because they can have it ie $$$$. For me personally. It's to pull a boat, camper, race car trailer and haul whatever I want whenever I want. Winter, plowing threw snow in the country and on the farm or Summer going off to play with other toys.
