We had the opportunity back in Oct to build a Landspeeder for a new TV series that will air in late April or so on Velocity channel. The build came out pretty nice and we have since gone back and started to add some detail. Since we were pressed for time we couldn't build it to exact movie spec but its looking pretty close.Its taken the guys over at Faraway creations years to collect original parts to create there master piece. we had 30 days, lol. We made our own chassis out of aluminum inside the fiberglass tub and its powered by an electric golf cart drive train. we basically took the rear out of the golf cart and narrowed it and replaced the wheels and tires with something skinnier to fit under the speeder properly. we were able to use some of the steering components and went with a single wheel up front. Its powered by 4 Optima Yellow Top batteries and rolls out pretty quick. we built the rear suspension as a 3 link set up using coil overs. Since we were filming other episodes back to back we are just now getting to put some time into the details. Allot of the original parts that were put on the original two speeders made no sense at all and are certainly now recognizable as to what they really are. Since it was designed as a prop to be used in a few scenes and there were very few close up shots of the detials we decided to embellish a bit on a few items that clearly look like they were out of place. The steering wheel for one was different between the two originals and neither looked the part. Since this will be something that people can walk up on and see in person We felt we should make some of these minor details look like what you would have expected to see. I will add some air dates on to the thread when I know for sure if anyone is interested in checking out the build. Meanwhile here are some pictures to check out.
