"Furias" - Technic Class Space Racer . The "Furias" was a custom built space-racer from the shipyards of Llwyngwril X. . The "Furias" was designed to race in the "Technic" series of space races. It is seen here about to turn around one of the race marker satellites in low Earth orbit. The name of this ship came from the 20th century Reno Unlimited Class air racer, "Furias", a converted Hawker Sea Fury. The inspiration for this scale of spacecraft came from the cool 21st century spacecraft designer, Parrington Levens and his Am-Space "Eagle". The shipyards of Llwyngwril X had had the wings built for quite some time, just waiting for a suitable project. Ships of this class raced both in space and through the atmosphere. This meant that "Furias" was a relatively clean, greeble-free craft, despite pressure from the racing fans of the notorious MOCpages. The exception was the grey device, inside the front intake, which may or may not have had a function. The cockpit was quite spartan, containing just a seat, some instruments and a Classic Space style steering wheel for the pilot. This helped to keep this racing machine down to a low weight. Another weight saving idea meant that "Furias" had no undercarriage. Instead it both took-off and landed on a specially built trolley. Landings were hazardous, as the ship had a high stall speed, owing to its swept wing. At least one crash was caused by the pilot going off his trolley. The colours of the ship were chosen to highlight the build techniques used in the wings and also to impress the readers of the space racing magazines. They were inspired by starship designers such as Peter Elson and especially Chris Foss.
