The Terra Industrial Corporation, on of humanities foremost tech juggernauts, is now joining the FCAI, (la Federation de Course Aero International).

Its entry, the Albatross I70 anti gravity high speed racing craft.

_______________________________________________
Terra Industrial also manufactures and produces a range of civilian/military space vessels:

Galeron Mammoth R10 by Gwentari Galera Hercules R9H by Gwentari Galeron Mazeraki Class Schooner R9C by Gwentari 
______________________________________________
Role playing aside.

I spent almost a full day working on the Albatross from scratch, although I haven't used any FCAI stickers or sponsor logos, the idea behind that is that the model livery is as production default would have it. I also decided to use a corporation from my Almera Universe as the manufacturer because it gives the craft a bit more, authenticity in my opinion. 

For the most part, everything is relatively simple, theres more rule-of-cool in the Albatross than a lot of my models, I also considered using a variant of the Galeron Mazeraki (the right image link above) as the racer but decided against that. Ultimately I think the albatross is a huge step forward in my design process and my abilities, I had the chance to try out a lot of techniques that I have learned lately and I think it came together well.

For those of you curious about the "FCAI" heres the official contest write up

This is exactly the kind of entry I hoped for in this challenge!
I love the  ingenuity in all facets of the design, and the adverts for Terra Industrial's lineup is pure brilliance.
This is damn good entertainment, well done!

Its hard to say only from perspective view, but If You want to be accurate, F-16 jet fighter`s side stick is ~18 cm heigh form base to top.

By the way, why stick is on left hand?

It didn`t. I was just curious, is it customisable for pilot, or fixed.

Well nearly all of the instruments are wired up to the craft's VI so provided there's a link port, I suppose yeah you could swap almost anything in the cockpit. (I didnt actually model that but its how its ment to work.)

I really like this! You really put a lot of thought into the design. I love the inclusion of the flatbed. It looks good. Maybe I'll make a flatbed for my racer as well! :)

Thanks ^-^, A lot of the stuff on my deviant art comes from the Almera Universe, which is a world im building to rival worlds like stargate and star trek, so you can chase up Terra Industrial and find lots of other ship's they have made.

I'd also like to say that im giddy right now, your work has inspired me for a couple of years now, so to hear praise from you I think im gonna faint :D

Fantastic job! I really love how you thought of everything.  I need to make some infrastructure for mine now.. I like the truck idea.  Great great work!  Love how the engines can flip around, it reminds me of the first episode of firefly.
