This is the first MOC of a collection I’m doing about an alternative universe called “OutroMundo” (means ‘other world’ :) ). This universe takes place at the end of XIX century and beginning of XX century of our world. I created this MOC back in June of 2004.
The A1-escort is an armored zeppelin that uses a combustion engine connected to one proppeler. For its best known caractheristic, its great maneuverity (i think its correct word), it uses two rockets for fast start and two horizontal proppelers for sudden changes of direction.
The Zeppelin is also equipped with a cannon and 4 rifles.
The ideas for the “OutroMundo” universe are based on the works of Miyasaki (anime director), Schuiten & Peeters (European Comics Authors), in the Last Exile series among many others.

t. You used some really nice techniques on the zeppelin. And Last Exile is one of my favourite anime shows. :)
Yes, Last Exile is magnificent! ;)
When I builded the A1, this technique (zeppelin build with plates) wasn't usual. I used the same way that the front of the RBR (10019) was build.
Thanks for the invitation for the anime group.
