I looks like it could have flown straight out of a myazaki / Studio Ghibli Film!
It definately has got the 'swooshability' factor in abundance and I like the whole concept of a racing derigible - kind of reminicent of those marvelous men in their flying machines!!
Great work, keep on with the steampunk!
I like the use of both balloons and wings on the same model. The design of the wings, in particular, is really creative. The little things hung from the balloon's support ropes (the lanterns and sign) are also a nice touch. Great job!
