Spinner Car 17 Inch Resin Model Kit


Spinner Car 17 Inch Resin Model Kit:

Spinner is the generic term for a flying car in Blade Runner that can drive as a ground car, take off vertically, hover and cruise using jet propulsion much like Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) aircraft today. They are used extensively by the police to survey the population, and it's clear that despite restrictions wealthy people can acquire spinner licenses. It was designed by Syd Mead and has been "replicated" in films such as The Fifth Element and the Star Wars prequel trilogy. These films have the popular vision of flying cars, and people use spinners like traditional cars; in Blade Runner, the flying cars substitute for helicopters and very light jets.

Designer Mead has described the spinner as an aerodyne – a vehicle which directs air downward to create lift, though press kits for the film stated that the spinner was propelled by three engines: "conventional internal combustion, jet and anti-gravity".

 If you love to build and paint model cars this is a project you will love.  Originally designed by ANUBIS productions ,  this 17.5 inch Spinner car features both passenger and Deckard in the cockpit (molded  into car)  The decal detail is inscribed in the body along with multiple resin lighting parts.  Windows are vacuform plastic.  Base Not included.
