davet, whether or not you and your team win anything for speed, that is one COOL looking vehicle. The detail is impressive. Nice job.

Thanks Speedster. The pic doesn't do the color justice. Everything from the rear edge of the front wheel forward including some of the runway was added with Microsoft Paint. If I stretched it any further it looked weird. My boy said he wanted a fast aircraft carrier.

I like how you used the DFW cut out and lined up the diagonal runway with it to look closer to how the edge of a real carrier juts out on the side.

Nice looking aircraft carrier car Team Devet.
Very nice details as well.


What type of automobile can be spelled the same forwards & backwards?

Thanks guys. My boy loves your comments. He wasn't sure, neither was I, how it would look. It's different anyways.

That thing looks fast even without wheels. It might hurt someone too. Is that a ladder design or just flat?

Thanks for your comment as well Team Devet.
Thought I'd do something fun for your son.. by requesting the flyby. ;)

It is a ladder design car that I'm working on.

It's still a great way to make a thin car. Look cool. Decals and cool designs totally make a thin to win car. Look awesome.
