Hey all you Fallout Fans, Here’s another Fab Fallout Fill-up! You’ve probably seen that odd looking private jet during your travels around the Western Wasteland, probably stumbled across it when exploring Jean Skydiving, or the illustrious Camp McCarran. This plane is actually modeled after the Custer CCW-5. The Channel wing design is used to increase the area of the wing without actually increasing the wingspan, which made for extremely short takeoff and landing distances. The differences between the CCW-5 and the Jet in Fallout include an Atomic Jet Turbine instead of the channeled piston powered prop (which the stability with jet as compared to ducted prop may offer different handling characteristics); forward swept wings instead of backwards swept with a higher placed horizontal stabilizer; and a slightly smaller cabin, probably only accommodating 3 or 4 instead of 5 passengers. Check out the Video Below of The CCW-5 in flight:
Until Next Time, Fallout Fans!

Here’s a Zinger for all the fans of Fallout out there, I’m sure you all know the Corvega Sedan, that beautiful blue piece of atomic fury? Well, most of the vehicles in the game are based off of concept vehicles, but this one was actually based off a custom car, The Lincoln Golden Sahara. George Barris took a wrecked 1955 Lincoln Capri and turned it into a high tech, super-automobile. The car had 5 way steering, a sonic automatic braking system, and gold plated metal finishes. It could also be remotely controlled from a small transmitter that could fit in your pocket. The car was even featured in “Cinderfella,” a movie starring Jerry Lewis! Although the car was not driven by an atomic turbine, it sure looked like it could be. After the break, a video of the car -
Another Update for all of you Fallout Fanatics! You all remember that atomic powered semi tractor that you used to damage that horde of Nightkin - or that time you were being chased by both Raiders and Talon Company and that ol’ atomic flivver went super-critical and blew it’s casing, killing ‘two birds with one stone.’ The semi tractors in both Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas are modeled after the 1950 type GMC Cabover truck (Specifically in these pictures, the ‘59 model year). There are a few minor differences, such as the larger hood to accommodate the atomic reactor for locomotion, a larger transmission behind the cab to handle the massive amounts of torque put out by a atomic driven turbine and the overall streamlining of the cab.
Hey all you Fallout Fans, At one time or another, you’ve probably wondered where the designers found their inspiration for the computer systems seen throughout the Fallout Universe. These are the Tape Drives seen in Fallout 3 and New Vegas. They are based off of the Bendix MTA-2 Tape Drives (From the Bendix G-15 Computer.) These computers used the magnetic tape drives to load and write programs and save data sets.
