flying boats corp. Airboat
My first steampunk
About this creation
This is my first steampunk creation. I think it turned out nicely. Please note that this is my first steampunk!

This craft is essentially a steam-powered boat with an air sack attached over the top using to pillars and a chain. I don't have any good steampunk minifigs, so i used knights!

So, yeah. I think i'm not gonna destroy it (like i planned to). I also didn't have enough tubing to make it have the intricate pipe systems so common on other steam punk. i might post a picture of the airboat without the air sack (so it would be just a boat.)

The air sack is inflated using the heated air from the steam boiler (created as a biproduct). The actual steam pushes cylinders which power the actual propeller.

The airboat is armed with an automatic crossbow (operated from the cockpit). The airboat can carry up to 2 people, or 1 person and a small trunk/barrel.

Great! A new cool steampunk creation! Nice work on the streamlined design and I like the creative use of the large cylinders to form the barrage air sac. I tried something similar with my Tin Plate Canary but had to make it an Omnicopter instead because I had nothing to use as a balloon. For your first attempt at steampunk, I think this is a great start! ;)

Very good. I would replace those white pieces with gray, and then make sure to take the pictures in a well-lit room. Great job for your first steampunk-themed craft.
