About this creation

This is my contribution to a Brickish project to build a grid of motorsport inspired space racers. They'll all be 1:8 scale and each builder has a colour scheme to build in.

Martini stripes for the win!



A figure to scale must fit inside. The head design here came from Ed Diment. Thanks Ed for saving me from making the head too big. Again.



Wings and things have subtle angles for the fun of making it complicated...



Her royal Stigness with her chariot.



She'll almost certainly definitely fit in there. Probably.



See ?



Not that she'd see much through there...



No V6 hybrids here. That's a, er, a... fusion warp drive, yes that's it.





A striped underside...



The wings are inclined, but the... boosters (?) are not.



Lots of things to do in here. The springs act as struts to hold the canopy open or closed.



Aerodynamically optimised for the vacuum of space...



Which does make you wonder what this is for... it goes faster in the upper atmosphere!





Ready to race... go Lady Stig!

Nice! The two parts on the helmet (visor and the part above it, they are similar) remind me of a nice feature of them. If you put one with the front forward on top of part 6117940 (angled plate 1x2/2x2) and the other one with the front up on the side of this part, the angled fronts of these parts will connect perfectly. That can be useful for other helmets you might make.

That's a lot better than I thought! It's not often I see a spaceship in larger than minifig scale. The interior is great! You did a good job with the S.N.O.T. too.

Quoting Werewolff . An incredible racer, with lot of great design and questionably useful aerodynamic features. I quite like the interior as well, and I'm digging the Top Gear reference. I'd love to hear the trio's voice-over on this one, "It's the Stig's Futuristic Cousin".

This a a real sleek-looking creation and the detailing inside the cockpit, including the ergonomic seat, is outstanding. What I like the best, though, is the windshield (or should that be space dust shield?). I have seen loads of brick built windshields that look like, well, a pile of bricks, but you seem to have managed to work with the natural angles of the sloped parts to create a smooth, almost seamless surface.

Quoting Oran Cruzen Excellent build! Do these fit into your idea like a space race: http://www.moc-pages.com/moc.php/428633 and http://www.moc-pages.com/moc.php/428363
Those look great; right idea, different scale.

Fantastic, Nick! I'd already gotten a look on Flickr, but couldn't resist another glance through - each time I see some new detail, interesting connection, or "cool" factor. The shaping is superb, the color scheme is classic, and that figure is looking mighty fine as well. I can tell this took some work to get right and it was well worth it!

Really cool that the pilot fits in the cockpit! Beautiful spacecraft with a splendid colorscheme!

What a totally unique ship! The size is impressive and the boys like the figure. I myself am into the blue window...nice touch.

Wow Nick! So much to like here! There's a lot going on behind the scenes to make all those angles work...and my goodness they work! I really like the cockpit too! The old school computers are a nice touch as is that brilliant windscreen! The striping is excellent and the brick built figure is top notch! Overall, a fantastic design!

Brilliant work all around! The ship shaping and color work is outstanding, but the canopy and cockpit really put this over the top. AND then you have the awesome brick build figure... that fits!

Love it, Nick! Never seen you so "spacy"! Mr. Kubrick would have had much fun with this design, maybe he's looking from up above to applaude here! ;)

Very cool design, Nick! Especially like the spring-loaded canopy, the shaping, and the little jabs at movie space ships with streamlined shapes and wings making jet fighter sounds as they "fly" through the vacuum. Same thing happened with UFOs. Ever since "The Day the Earth Stood Still", everyone's been absolutely certain that when aliens finally land here, they'll be in a flying saucer.

Awesome! This is a lot bigger than i thought when i saw the thumbnail, but it looks great. Nice shape and colors, and a cool futuristic looking lady Stig you made too. Great work :-)

I do believe this will actually fly! The shaping looks awesome and I love all those angles. The cockpit is most impressive. I love the figure too. Outstanding!

Excellent shaping, styling, and large scale figure. Designing closed cockpit with openable canopy for large scale figures is not an easy task, I can tell you from experience. In the future, you could build a Formula 1 tiltrotor racing quadcopter from that. Then, you do not need to tinker with the warp drive, just put there a sizeable LiPo battery...

The famous Martini paint scheme is a fantastic choice for this space racer. Awesome work in shape, design and detail. Really love how you describe everything ;) Perfect my friend!

Very stylish. The cockpit looks comfy. Until the 10Gs of thrust kicks in, that is.

Exceptional sir! First of all, the mastery of studless parts and colors, especially the pin stripe! But lets not forget the most realistic cockpit I've seen so far. 5 rating deserved.
