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...

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:
