Retro-futuristic Streetcars


Retro-futuristic Streetcars

A pair of vintage streetcars dating from the future of the past. I designed these myself and I took quite some inspiration from American & Italian streetcars from the 1940's and 50's.

I wanted them to look like classic streetcars but they turned out to be quite modern so I added some retro-futuristic styling and I think that made it work. I am happy with the result and they look exactly how I wanted them to.

They look pretty similar to each other but they are quite a bit diferent, both cars can be used as motorwagons because they both have a pantograh on top of the roof (which can easily be turned around to face the other direction) and they both have one steering column. (which can also be easily be moved around to the other side or even to the other car to make one be able to go in 2 different directions) This also means that you can easily modify / customize them to drive on the right side or the left side of the road, based upon the country where you live. They can be attached and detached to each other, you could even run them as 2 seperate cars if you like.

I hope you like this build and please support this project if you'd like to see it on the shelves! That would be appreciated. Please leave a comment and criticize me, I like to get better at stuff.
