That's right! A new hover thingy.



I got bored and made this thing. It's not as good as the truck, but it's supposed to be a lightly armoured mass-produced type of vehicle.

Front

Back

Side

Crew

And I have a bonus picture



That's all, thanks for stopping by! Please comment Smile .

I like the dashboard gun a lot. Good use of the wrench. The top-mounted gun is a bit large for this vehicle, though. Maybe if you shorten the barrel a bit?

You could seal the gap between the dash and the hood if you used three of these:

Very nice! I like the hardhats you used for the crew of the hovertruck better than the caps you used here, though.

I forgot about that gap Embarassed I'll get it fixed.

And Liquidcross, there's a method to my madness (or so I like to think) there. The two guys in the hovertruck are mere employees, while the capped men are security guards. Plus the bley caps go with their uniforms a little better. But the employees are my favorites... Perhaps BL is in the future...

The chassis works great. Love the shape on that, but frankly, the wheel thing is getting old, and it looks too easy. I'd recommend making a variant with a brick-built hover mechanism, a more original skirt or uniquely shaped side pods that make it float. Just a thought.
