Alright, I've had this guy under development for a while, thought I'd show it off here.

I'm about a week away from firing up the KS on this ship. It's a snap to build and goes together quickly. Should be lots of fun for those looking for a European ship to patrol the martian or dystopian skies.

A few perspective shots

And a fine looking vessel she is too!

Very nice work!

That's a great looking ship.

A splendid ship! Now to mount the deck guns…

Nice work. Are those Hydra agents?

Thanks gentlemen. It's been a fun build and I'm really happy with the way it came out.

JMcCarroll, there are already some great deck guns out there. I have contemplated getting some made, but all the basics are available in 'true 28' by the virtualarmchairgeneral I believe.

That's sweet. Good luck with your project.

I love it! This is the type of thing I wish I could afford, but I suspect it would blow my budget sky high.

The "OOH SHINY" response is very strong with this ship but my more practical side says what would I use it for.

Lovely though.

I'd find a use for it,with a few changes she would be a fine Triumph Class ship for Space 1889. Bravo Sir,you've done a fine job again.

And for UK buyers why not try HLBS who have a fine range of 1880's ships guns.

Thanks gentlemen! I'm working on the pricing now, just have to cut the final version and time it, figure out the final materials count. I'm thinking it will $95 USD and I might offer a second on the same order for $60. USD

Allen57, what is this 'practical side' you talk about? :)

I feel myself weakening. Please post a !ink when it's available.

"She has a bluff bow, lovely lines. She's a fine airship: weatherly, stiff and fast … very fast, if she's well handled. No, she's not old; she's in her prime."

Looking forward to adding her to the fleet.

A few more pics to add. Finished the final, final build of the Furious and also created a sister ship.

Here is the Audacious ready to be added to the next hull that rolls of the line.
