Okay. Little bit edgy about entering a competition, but I need the practice and I like the fact that there is a deadline to try to stick to. This way I might actually complete something.
I’m posting my proof of concept here (back of a fag packet scribble)
It is not Graf Zeppelin Airshipesque, but is in fact propelled using a hoverthrust system (which as I understand it will be invented sometime around 1997). The sharp eyed amongst you will notice there are two pods side by side increasing the amount of passengers the CitySpeeder can carry. It is the length of three Airbus A380’s and was inspired (no-not ripped off) by this picture http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/news_events/futuristics/comav/11.html
The cynics amongst you will suggest it is an easy shape to model, which will hopefully prove correct. However I’m sure the devil will be in the details. The CitySpeeder (patent pending) is built from chrome - as all good retro futuristic objects are, and I will be modelling this behemoth using EI Modeller.
I’m not sure what environment it will be placed in yet, but hopefully it will be airborne, as long as the scale of the CitySpeeder can be appreciated.
More detailed studies to follow in due course…
