So, I decided to scratch build an original Space ship/craft/sum it or other. I was determined not to copy a style or genre. Very difficult with me being a big Star Wars fan from the age of nine (77').
I didn't want it to be from a galaxy far far away either, i thought it would be more interesting to go towards a more not to distant future kind a thingy. I thought about 3011ish. I just re-read what i've written I'M SUCH A NERD.But anyway back to the subject. I was watching my sport of choice at some point during this thinking process Formula 1. Red Bull Racing Had just won the championship with Sebastian Vettel driving. What about Red bull deliveries in the 3011 i thought, (as you would) how would Red Bull get its product to where ever in 3011. Bingo?

So to be brief i'm building a Red Bull delivery thingy what sit from the year 3011.

I wish Vettel would stop winning everything!

Very unique idea. And it looks terrific so far. I'll be following. :)

Re: NYLON GAG MK 1?

Some more pics. I've been working on this for about 3 weeks now. I just have get it to look like the one in my head.

Thanks for the feed back.

watch Jenson next year.

Thats my tip.

I have the wonderful 1/12 Tamiya Williams FW-14B to build next, but this thing in my head will probably take a while?

If Lewis gets his head together, he's faster than Jenson and can beat him. If he gets his head together. I hope you're right about Button though...

I think option 1. The front wings detract from the overall shape IMO.

Re: NYLON GAG MK 1?

I did some basic sketches to get the general shape i wanted and see how i could build the main structure. Then i made a small model to prove the concept. The main wing area is still causing me to make it up sort of but not, I've gone through about 5 different options so far and i still haven't decided but i'm taking it one day at a time.

I've sorted my Computer out so i now have all the pictures on hand from the entire build.

The main body is made out of a piece of 6" , 4" and 3" PVC Tubing. They are held together with small blocks of wood, hot glue & lag screws.

Hello Herdsters,

Well Mom has gone back to 'sunny old blighty' so the cave is mine again.

Over the last two weeks i have been collecting any piece of odd shaped plastic that might be useful for this build, if you go to the chit chat section and 'Scratchin' ,i pose a question about using such pieces, i would be interested to see what you guys think?

Over the weekend i did some assembly but mainly design work, which is very difficult when you only have an idea of what you want it to look like, and you are trying to keep it as 'real' as possible but with no specifics, that is the hard part.

Just a rough draft, but i did establish some elements i liked from this.

Thanks for looking, all comments welcome.
P.s In an effort to keep it 'real', as a delivery truck/thingy, would it have a gun.... Yes or No?

Gag, this is terrific progress! Good work.

On the subject of a gun.... Depends on how harsh your galaxy is. Maybe there are space pirates or giant space insects with a thirst for Red Bull? Gonna need some defence against those guys. ;)

Looks great! I use to build things like this back when I was in High school. Makes me want to give it a try again!
