Steampunk airship 002

22 Feb

Today’s post is a recently finished Victorian style steampunk airship. This one is approximately 24″ in length overall and has very decorative stabilizer fins and a wooden propeller with scaffolded prop struts.

As always, this airship uses repurposed/found object, cardboard, paper and papier-mâché in its construction. How many recognizable objects can you identify?

    Beautiful work! I’m sure there are lots of details that don’t show up in photos. I love the element of fantasy, and the embellishment on the bottom between the two pillars.

    Congrats, also, on having your work in Hollywood!
