Yeah, another WIP without the previous ones being finished. This is, as you can (hopefully) see, a frame of middle-sized steampunk airship. I have had an idea of a MOC like this for quite a while, and when I recentely got some useful pieces for it, I decided to give it a try. The WIP is somehow inspired by Hayao Miyazaki's Laputa: Castle in the Sky and it's wonderful Steampunk devices.
The base of the ship is built with pretty straightforward brick-on-brick techniques, with the round shape achieved with 1x4 horizontal hinge plates and bricks. The doors seen in the picture above are for landing ramp (or stairs, actually). There is a slide behind the doors, and there will be strairs which can be put down using chain or cord from the slide. It it quite hard to explain, but more of that when the build is finished.
I have already built the main machinery what is located inside the ship's frame. There is a water boiler and the fire box there. I have also made some early versions of main engines. You can see the back propellor above. The main propellors on the sides will be a lot bigger.
Stay tuned for updates on any of my projects!
