Here are some better photos of the first of a few Wipeout inspired antigravity racers. I've decided to not try and directly copy the teams that appear in the games as it frees me up to design things as I like. This one is Aertek!
About this creation
No decals on the model for these photos. I wasn't too happy with the quality of the originals and I'm going to have some proper vinyl ones made up soon.
Features deployable air-brakes!

I'm not very good at greebles

Very cool and good Model.
I try it to build after the Photos for days...
but the back wings are very difficult...
Can you help?
Sorry it's taken a while. I'm not too sure what bit you are referring to with the back wings. The Aertek photos (the blue and white one) show a side view cut away that should help.
Basically, the back wings sit on finger locking hinges at about a 45 degree angle, and are entirely separate to the front nose, which also sits on a hinge. To mask the gap between the nose and the wings a tile is placed on the wing or nose to hide the gap, making it look almost like it is one smooth body. It takes a little playing with to get everything lined up but it should be possible.
Hope that helps
