British Dominion Skyracer by Marrekie British Dominion Skyracer by Marrekie
The notorious ‘Westwood Special No 48’ skyracer dominated the British Dominion Nebula Trophy for nine consecutive years. During that period, the highly-modified Hawker Tempest Mk VIII anti-gravity ship won the Gold Unlimited Race six times and finished second three times.

--------

'Kit bash' of my Yukikaze model (something I should've done months ago). The engine nacelles were derived from Ywander's Tzuoff-design [link] Go check his stuff out!

If war ever broke out, could these things be converted to fighters?

Do you think the cockpit is set too low for the pilots to see well?

Nice work too, I like the color scheme:w00t:

:| does "kit bash" mean that you are mixing pieces you've made from other projects to make something new ?

Whoo, nice and sleek and compact, exactly what you'd expect from a racing craft like this. The design is overall really really nice, I like the engine setup and all together it looks like a concept sketch...which works for it.

Very interesting concept, looks very original! But for some reason this reminds me more of a combat vehicle than a racing vehicle. Maybe its the colors? =D

Great looking kitbash you got there, bro! Love the classic British (Dominion?) Racing Green. It really suits the model. Some purdy lil’ engine nacelles too ;)

So what’s next?

Marrekie Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2009
Thanks man.

Not sure what's next! I've got a few ideas on the backburner, but none of them has really kickstarted the ol' grey goo yet. I messed with two concepts for a three-legged and a six legged steammech the other day...
