Burn in Design: Luftschiffe
Burn in Design arbeiten an einigen Luftschiffen und zeigen auf Facebook Bilder der Prototypen.
Just a few of the prototypes for the new airships.
Airship #3 – This one is about as large as I will go for these, about 22″ overall length. The final version adds vertical winglets to the tail rather than 1 large fin. I wanted this one to feel more like a whale than a shark. I am not going to include a skin with this one. The strips are too long and I have found it is easier to cut them by hand. The wood bows flex a little making it hard to account for assembly differences. I have found that paper packing tape, the kind that needs to be wet to stick or paper drywall tape work best for covering it.
Skinning the large airship makes it look kind of like a flying submarine. The idea of a sky whale is about there. Maybe I will add some extra front winglets. I am going to have to come up with a second engine/fan package for this kit.
Side note question – Should I make a submarine kit using this as a base? It would be a half submerged version with a tower and a large flat deck area for placing minis. Sort of a U-boat meets Red October.
