Perfect, yet again!  :sweet:

A very accurate design indeed. I love the seating arrangement.

I'm sure this will also do very well in the contest and I wish you the best of luck!  :thumbup:

The crazy thing is this version is very hallow. Since I had to remove 55 pieces from the original design.

Yes yes yes! Absolutely lovely! Perfect shape, maybe you could take off the Aqua Raiders sticker, but ingeniously designed!

Yeah I did that on purpose I thought the Trident Symbol would be nice for Taxi Cab logo. Like an "E" with a lighting "t" bolt through it kind of feel.

Hate to say it, but the taxi is a air speeder and not a land speeder/vehicle. But it is a great mod non the less.

Looks awesome :thumbup: I really like how much space you put in there :thumbup:
Though another MOC you could make is another Coruscant Taxi but this time try to build it like the one in Hostage Crisis
Anyways good luck on the contest :thumbup:

I've already talked this over with Rook before he started working on the MOC and I voted that this counts as a vehicle.
It's more of a future hovercraft version of a cab than an aircraft.

Very nicely done, Rook.

The only thing I do not like about it is the yellow, as I would prefer something like Dark grey or Dark red.

Ace Rook, that looks looks the [taxi] business! I like the yellow-cab colour scheme and identity you've given it, works really well.

What more can I say...? Good luck!
