The Victoria
You never realize how much you appreciate Terra Firma until it shatters beneath you
About this creation
Many of you are familiar with the popular Lego genre of Floating Rocks. The Telus World of Science in Edmonton is holding a contest for a Lego exhibit: Wheels, Wings, and Waves: A Lego World of Transportation. Ian and I set out to win this contest, and thus began Project: RockPocalypse. Imagine, if you will, if the world were to suddenly fragment, somehow still held together by a faint gravitational force. What was the surface is now hundreds of meters above an inhospitable landscape. How do you get around? Airships, my friend, airships. This is the Victoria, a small airship that hails from what used to be a popular tourist destination before The Fracture. Now every day this craft and a rag-tag group of survivors scan the skies for supplies, and shadows of a past life. There is a mystery regarding the ships namesake. Why would the Captain have named it so? Was it a friend? A birthplace? A lover? No one knows, it seems, except the mysterious George Lincoln.
Fantasy has never been so dark.

In Sepia!



On White!



Original Format!



Looking down the Bow.



Port side.



Starboard side.



Port Bow with ballast and grappling anchor.



A large rudder helps steer the vessel at low speeds in not-very-dense, high altitude, air.



Large boilers power the airship through the skies.



We're not sure whether or not this should be called the helm or the gondola......




The crew of the Victoria:
Yuri Semenikoff - First Mate - Some say that he simply grew out of the Captain's left bicep
"Bones" Franklin - Ship's Doctor - He's been known to circumcise a gnat
"Crazy" Harry - Salvage Expert - The rest of the crew often wonders if he can say anything besides "Fire in the hole!"
Duke "Charcoal" Watson - Boiler Technician - Without Duke, the Victoria would be dead in the air.
George Lincoln - Captain and Pilot of the Victoria - Little is known about the Captain


And there you have it, folks! Part one of Project: Rockpocalypse

Quoting Sky Hawk Is it a steampunk moc?
We're not really sure ourselves. Given the misty, white nature of the stuff coming out of the stacks, I'd say steampunk over dieselpunk

Great work! I love the boilers on the sides! And that hand/dumbell weight steering wheel was nice as well, a day before this was posted, I came up with exactly the same idea, except I used it as a evil-looking shield. Anyways, really nice work, it has a unique shape.

Quoting Will Jarman One of the most bad-ass steampunk blimp-things. Now I guess it's 100%
Nope! Well, the blimp is I guess..... Rock still needs more building.

Quoting Bartosz k cool ship! why was i banned from the U.N.E group? i didn't do anything wrong!
Probably not banned, just removed due to an apparant lack of activity. We do that. Just throw us a request.

Dang, what a beast of a ship! Love the details you fit into this, like in the helm and the little cleats on the side. Don't know if I really want to be a gnat on the boat, though. D:

Pretty nice. I've always had a penchant for airships, although I must admit I have more of a taste for Diesel rather than Steam in my punk.

one of the most awesome airships I've ever seen, I like the use of minifig hands in the steering wheel, great shape as well, reminds me of a submarine, I love it great job

Interesting plot, and great airship. I just finished waching Nausicaa, and after seeing this I want to build something wind powered soooo badly. Great airship.

Quoting Christian Collins I'll be looking foward to the rest of this project. The one thing that really got my eye, oddly enough, is the steering wheel.
Thanks! I quite like how it turned out myself.

And to think I built a mythical blimp not two weeks ago! Not nearly as cool, though. 5/5!
