Matt's Airship, The Cloud Cutter . The dread airpirate Mattbeard, scourge of the airways, most feared and hated by all that travel the ether. If you spot this ship in your scope, by all means, fly as fast as you can. It only makes him more eager to catch you. . Status: Intact. Or I hope so. It is capable of being suspended by a string to a ceiling, but gravity is a harsh mistress. Any way, this is a personal creation for my friend Matt. Including my Aluminum Mallard, this is part of a personal project to make personalized LEGO ships for my friends. Two down, at least one more to go! Matt's airship, the Cloud Cutter, is a one-man pirating vessel. Designed to be operated entirely by a single person, it can sail, fight and pillage by means of a series of levers and switches at the helm. Many a trading ship and even a few cruisers have come across this vicious little shark of the sky. I had this idea of transparent sails for the longest time, because it makes sense. On the ocean, you only have to worry about two planes, ahead and behind, and left and right. But an airship would have to worry about three planes, including up and down. Being able to see clearly in every direction is a big advantage. Of course, below is a problem, but with a fast ship piloted by a man known for constantly pitching and turning, that's no longer an issue. At the helm, you can see a few switches and pressure gauges. The two canons, located mid-ship on both port and starboard, are loaded, primed and fired with simple pulls of a lever. It's al automated, which is handy for a man that keelhauled his entire crew for mutiny. Seriously, don't *&#@ with Mattbeard. Also, the small but powerful fan engine propells this craft with speed and precision. Agile and quick, it can handle the worst the airways can throw at her. Other features include an armored hull (SNOT used quite a bit on this), two (sort of working) anchors, functional rigging (all that black string does something), a moving headsail (all this marine terminology is getting confusing) and moving cannons. Hope Matt likes it, and I hope you enjoyed my first step away from spacecraft.
