Speeding along the Martian landscape one may see the Martian Zeta-12 Hyperion Scout Jet. After the Solar Explorer vessel made first contact with our friends from Mars they returned with a Martian light cruiser with Martians sent as ambassadors and some martian tech to give their generous human friends.
This particular Jet Scooter, as BB termed them, is being piloted over an Earth desert by pilot Asterion (Officially an Unknown Martian). He is the assistant of Cassiopeia on the Ambassadorial team. Also with them is pilot Altair and Scientific Engineer Canopus.
This modified classic is part of a project I've wanted to do for some time, upgrading Life on Mars sets. The LEGO Life on Mars series was one of my favorites growing up, and I always loved this set. I was inspired by another guy's upgraded mono-jet to revisit the idea of upgrading Life on Mars sets.
I'm not sure how stable the back is on this model, I'd have to wait till I can find the right pieces to build so I can test. If anyone would like to help in this endeavor, please do.
