    I finished my two Barsoomian skyships. Here’s to wet your appetite 😀

    I’m just about prepared to covertly board it in the cover of night, steal it and set off for a life of high adventure in the skies. It’d be worth it

    Awesome!!!

    Got any building plans/templates for them?

    I’d love to try and build some in 6mm scale.

    I am afraid not. I made a few templates for the parts that had to be repeated a few times like the wings and the ribs, but I drew most of the shapes directly on the MDF, straight from the sketch.
    However, the pictures on my blog, especially in part 1, show the construction quite well I think. It is relatively straightforward.

    And thank you for the kind words, of course!

    Astounding! 

    I don’t play this context but your skyships are beautiful!

    Thank you for the kind words!

    I hope the ships will inspire people to build their own. The next and last phase in the project will be a large tower based on the Red Tower of Helium, to complete the table for PolderCon 2017.
