My first model in about a year is one for the Steamwars contest. It’s a steampunkified pod racer. Yay!
The Darling Apollo, here in the Machina Nosejob edition, is a craft without equal. Made of the finest wood and iron, it’s not only a beauty a look at – it also pack a mighty punch. The immense engines gives it a power of nearly five horses combined, but due to it’s hovering nature it handles terrain much better than the land-based creatures. At such dizzying speed the vehicle’s controller must be sharp-witted, precise and elegant – all prerequisites fulfilled by gracious driver Trenton Telgaard.
You can see more of it on flickr. Prepare to race!
This thang is sweet! I recognize that it’s a podracer but is based on an existing podracer from the films?
