Jefferson's Airship . This is my first Steampunk moc. it is an airship. i enjoyed this moc although parts of it presented many challenges. Enjoy. .
This airship is owned by professor Jefferson. He has decided to take a flight around the countryside of england to celebrate the engagement of his daughter Miranda and her new fiance Jacques. The professor is a short man who is always working and this airship is his engineering pride and joy. Although a little unstable, he and his daughter, with their small crew, use it whenever there are no lightning storms.
Jacques, the fiance of Miranda, is a man who has connived his way through life. he used poor dumb peasants to get money and become rich, residing in Liverpool, his fiance Miranda does not see through his suave facade.
Miranda, lovely but dipsy daughter of the professor does not know what she is getting into with her marriage. She did not get brains from her father and is instead known sorely for her beauty and her beauty alone.
The Captain of this ship, Brin Clegg, is a respectable man who is gruff on the outside with a loving heart. He cares for Miranda and does not want to have her innocence ruined by the likes of Jacques and so is planning to accidentally drop a large chain on Jacques. He doesn't sound very loving. the name, not character, comes from one of the college mentors for my FIRST robotics team, Brian Clegg.
The first mate to Cpt. Clegg, Claude, is the rigging man. After making this figure, i realized that he closely resembled my orthodontist, Dr. Sputh. odd.
Lawrence, the steam engineer, commands the turbines of the ship and the air intake to the balloon. He is a valuable member to the crew and is also butler to professor Jefferson.
The turbines speed the ship at 40 mph or 60 kph. They are fast for 1800's technology thanks to the genius of Lawrence and the prof.
The steam boiler. Blah.
The side of the balloon. this was really hard to make and took a really long time. it is hollow to hold maximum capacity of oxygen atoms. It is what it looks like.
The top of the balloon.
The front of the balloon with a weird piece jutting out that adds to the appearance.
The whole side of the airship.
This was my first steampunk moc and was fun to build. i enjoyed this genre and will most likely contiue in it. RATE AND COMMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
