H.M.A.S. Beluga
About this creation
The brain-child of Admiral Briggs, the H.M.A.S. Beluga is a double-ballooned airship prototype that is more of a proof of concept than anything else. The Queen only approved of this project because the Admiral is personally responsible for saving the Prince from drowning when their ship was hit and sunk by none other than the French in the last war.

The steam powered airship isn't yet suited for combat because of its relatively small payload capacity, and the tremendous cost that when into its development. The Beluga serves mostly as a triumph of engineering and makes its way to parades and fairs across the English Countryside.

Enjoy!





















This "little" Airship was a bear to photograph. The hardest part was getting it to stand on only two brick pillars to allow for a better picture. If I had mad editing skills like some of the people in the AFOL/TFOL community, I would have added a sky background, but I don't have the skills nor the software to pull it off. Hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed building it!

Peace!

Airships are nice and hard to build at the same time.

Nice! You did a great job on the balloons, which are usually the hardest part to get right. I love how the ribs of the hull give glimpses into the engine, but I never see the whole thing. Over all, the entire ship has a whimsical and yes, a jaunty shape.

You're quite creative with the parts usage! Someone used the term 'jaunty'... ditto to that! It was all the early ballooning enthusiasts that helped further the interest into the development of the Chemical Gas Laws! :)
