Flying car prototype Y body by Marian87 Flying car prototype Y body by Marian87
This prototype body is made for increased stability at much higher air speeds than the previous body. [link] It incorporates suggestions made by :iconthreedmaniak:

After I saw this drawing [link]
by :iconwesker250: and the the theme for 3d sketchup challenge this month [link] I decide to give another go at making a sci fi flying car.
So here it is. Also the model can be found in skp format here:

Fantastic. I was hoping to use graphic assets made with the Google Sketchup model for a client video. Are you ok with granting rights for this model to be used in derivative works?

Ha! A natural poet too! You've got talent! :XD:
Ever make working CAD drawings/models? :B for something you planned on making?
Say a custom kit car design maybe? That would go on an empty chassis?

I made the framing and molds for a cool fiberglass body that was intended for a VW kit car chassis, with flared fenders and running board complete with mags - and if you popped off the extras! Presto! switch out your mags for muds & Your ready to hit the dunes with your buggy! :D

I do write poetry too, though rarely. :D

Never modeled something for a real world mechanism, but I did make a thinngy and got it 3d printed with Shapeways. :)

:wow: That is so cool! :D
Talk about exact replication, you wouldn't have to worry about a prefab manufacturer getting any of the details wrong, as it looks like it can be done with very fine details as well.
Shapeways is awesome! :D

If this was remade into a real, normal street-car, I'd be all over it :P

I like this one, a little Stingray like.

Did you use a car as base shape?

Marian87 Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks. No I didn't use any specific cars for the base of it, I just used this one [link] as inspiration for the first steps and after I just worked it out by eye.

I recognize the pininfarina touch on it. I've got a low poly corvette Stingray. Already tuned has 4x4, maybe give it a try as flying car.

Great work mate! Is this the model you had submission problems with? Looks like things worked out properly after all.

Thanks, I did what flaketom suggested and submitted it to featured and then moved it from there, it didn't work directly

Awesome! You totally nailed it! This looks much more feasable (inside the fictional standarts of flying cars) than the previous one. And, in my opinion, sexyer! :D
