SNOT Adventures: Hover Taxi
Here's my entry for the "SNOT Club's" future vehicle contest. It is a futuristic levitating taxi, yet it still holds traits of retro cars, such as fins, chrome bumpers, and a rounded shape. The taxi features seating for two, headlights and brakelights, communication antennas, a windshield, an identification number, and fins & bumpers, for an old-school look. Almost the whole car is SNOT, and there are only 14 exposed studs. See pic. 10, 11, and 12 for some of the SNOT techniques I used. Please review, and thanks for looking!

O.K. Dax Olesa, let's get to work. Because of that little trick you used on the front hood, where it doesn't really have any visible connection at all except for the bumper, I'm gonna boost your score. (18/20) You designed it off of a retro stylized recipient. The reletivity here is shown clearly with the chrome bumpers and the fins, althogh there isn't any specific origin you lose a few points. (7/10) There isn't much of an interior at all. The control panel fits in well, but that's about it. (8/10) Last, I just have to say the the overall appearence of the vehicle... (8^0 Amazing! (10/10) O.K. 18 + 7 + 8 + 10 = (43/50)! It's time to celebrate with a burger! ~S.K.

Awesome MOC! This SNOT technique is spiffy. I especially like the bubbly lights in the front and the fins on the back.

Great entry. You've used a lot of interesting technics, obviously, but it's the sweet look of this Taxi that I love. One of the best "little" MOC I've seen in a while !

Now that's exactly what SNOT stands for! Like what you've did in this MOC, not just to cover the studs with tiles... Great job my friend, I really like it, You could add it to BoW if you like... Keep it up >>> peace.. Fofo :)

In the first words of a song I can't remember the name of in Midnight Club... I LOVE IT! It sorta looks like a bannana slug mixed with a frog, fish and finally what it really is. I love the curve on the sides. Good detail with the identification #. Too bad you couldn't fit seats inside to make the passangers feel a little bit more comfortable. Overall, this is one of your best mocs, and I look forward to judging this in a few minutes. 4 outta 5! S.K.
