Okay petrolheads, this one is for you. We’re pedal to the metal, full throttle speed freaks! We’ve bolted a jet engine to our pantechnicon and we are gonna get some air under this thing!

I am personally picking up thematic similarities from 2018’s 31074 Rocket Rally Car. Whether the 31103 Rocket Truck ‘retreads’ old ground or not, this is an appealing looking set in its own right.

    Thanks @KungFuKenny I've really enjoyed reviewing the two creator sets for Huw. Fingers crossed they have gone down well on the front page and he'll let me do more at some point in the future.
