Heavenly Rocket

5 posts in this topic

The Terrazi Terrajin is one of my favorite vehicles in Ridge Racer 7--it looks and goes like a rocket! :laugh: Recently, I was inspired to build a model in LEGO Digitial Designer similar to the Terrajin with an angellic theme (for another one of my favorite vehicles, the Kamata Angelus).

The last time I made a Ridge Racer 7-inspired vehicle, it was the Hoverlego, inspired by the Assoluto Pronzione.

Without further ado, I now present the Heavenly Rocket. Click any picture to enlarge it.

Yes, it has steering! :grin: LDD won't allow it to go very far though...but then again, at angellic speeds, steering might not be of much help anyway. :tongue:

Check out the side profile!

The only view most opponents will ever get to see... :tongue: Yes, my model has only one rear wheel. I originally wanted two, but one worked out nicely.

One aspect I really like about the Terrajin is the awesome panels that deploy when the nitrous is engaged. The Heavenly Rocket also has these, plus a few small winglets for extra stability.

Focus towards the back...

VROOM! :laugh:

If you are seeing this, you might as well say goodbye to first place!

Here's the pilot, Angela, in the cockpit (yes, that steering wheel really works!)

Is this machine race-ready, or does it need to go back to the garage?

Hello!

An interesting design concept. I think the windscreens work pretty well as cover for the boosters. The functional classic TECHNICĀ® steering system is also a nice feature. :classic:

Cheers,

Nice work. I too love the use of the cockpit pieces; the SNOT sides are nicely shaped, and the steering is a great touch.

Another very well designed vehicle Toa, I really like the unique concept of this futuristic racer, and the overall smoothness coupled with the clean white color scheme really makes this one sleek and cool-looking vehicle. Great job once again! :thumbup:
