The Red Baron & The Blue Brothers . A lighty armed but fast & manoeuvrable pod ship from the badlands of Bala II. . The year is 2236 A.F. and Wilhelm von Richthofen, the great, great, great god-nephew-in-law (twice removed) of the WW I ace, is a pilot on the wild and lawless world of Bala II. To honour his distant relative, Wilhelm paints his attack pod red. The pod is armed with a single 30mm pulse cannon but it is capable of amazing aerobatics, thanks to the thrust vectoring from its VTOL engines. Bala II is a world of mountains and deserts. Wilhelm lands his pod in this wasteland of sand and rocks. He opens the canopy so that he can head off and find some rock samples for his Mum, who is an expert geologist. In the distance there is a rumbling, whizzing noise and dust cloud... ...The noise is Elke & Jawood, the Blue Brothers. They're rushing across the desert on their high-speed machine, the "Bucking Mule" (that's the polite version!). These photos were stolen from the testing range and show the Bucking Mule's suspension being tested. It's not the smoothest ride: hence the name of the vehicle! MESSAGE STARTS...INCOMING UPDATE...PLEASE SCROLL TO NEXT PHOTO...MESSAGE ENDS Feedback from the elite vehicle designer Starscream Soundwave has led the Blue Brothers to change the wheels on the "Bucking Mule". This gives it a cleaner look & more motorbike type performance when cornering. Elke Blue, who always drives, now loves banking the Mule into sharp left turns and dragging his brother through the dirt. Jawood Blue is going to send Starscream Sounwave the cleaning bill for getting the mud off his blue driving suit & helmet! A sleek and deadly Bounty Hunter's assassination ship lurks in low orbit. Despite being built from "table scrap", it is a fast, dangerous and effective killer. It is armed with a single ship-to-ship homing missile. Wilhelm von Richthofen has shot down some of the wrong people over the years. They've paid the Bounty Hunter to take revenge! A sensor picks up a signal in the Bounty Hunter's ship. The engines fire up and the ship swoops towards the planet's surface... ...is this the end for the Red Baron...? ...No! The Red Baron lives to fight another day! Fourth Wall Commentary: Thanks to Starscream Soundwave for sowing the idea of remodelling the Bucking Mule's Wheels. Many thanks to El Barto ! for the advice on Photoshop and missiles. I went and did something different: sorry! Here's a link to Roy Lichtenstein's original painting.
