Very nice! I'd imagine these ships resemble submarines more than ironclads in terms of actual navigation, since surface ships move in two planes but submarines can move in three.
Also, Martian Punitive Expedition? Is this in response to the War of the Worlds invasion? If it is, I'm totally not surprised to see that name on a ship in such a war. HMS Thunder Child is best boat. <3
I would imagine that they would be a bit like submarines, and a bit like dirigibles, especially when operating within an atmosphere. I'm figuring the power/lift source is like the antigravity technology from the John Carter books, but with the design problems entailed with adapting them to what an Admiralty Board from 1900 would think of as a warship. It some ways, it's a very awkward mating... which is part of the narrative.
Yeah, good catch on the reference. I found myself wondering about what the fallout would be from a failed invasion attempt within the context of the events leading to WWI.
Well Ive been following your work for awhile and you have a ton of stuff that would make great kits. Model building has been fading, I think it is a lack of original kits and Industria Mechanika may have found a niche. BTW love the furniture cant wait to see more!
