Figured there might potentially be an audience for this here. Spent all night and morning, starting about 13 hours ago, working on it. I wound up settling on an open flying bridge with doghouses on the tips, because nothing else really looked as good in the end. It's a *little* funky to my eyes, but hell - it's steampunk.

Haven't decided on a name yet.

Surprisingly, this doesn't have that many pieces, relative to its pretty enormous size.

Awesome. Legos rule.

Thanks for sharing.

My kid (11 yo) insists on building out Legos out exactly per the instructions and then never changing them or building anything different.

Sheesh. Kids these days.

It's good to see Legos put to more creative use.

Pah! The youth these days are so LAZY and UNCREATIVE!

Back in my day, we wouldn't rest until we had invented four new vehicle types built entirely out of Duplo! And as soon as we had made them, we'd destroy them again, so the pieces could be cannibalised in the creation of all new new and unique builds! It was a different age...

 

 

...Man I miss 2013 :Smile_sad:

 

Spoiler

Out of character for a sec; I really like how you flipped the longboat hull around. That's such a cool idea! My only qualm is that the colours make the gun/superstructure look as if they aren't really part of the same build. Maybe putting some solid/white bits near the bottom might make it all come together a bit more? I dunno.

Wow, the details. This is awesome! I'm not sure I could sit for 13 hours, haha. Great job on this though!

Love it! The air balloons really add to it! Looks like it could be in a Studio Ghibli movie!

Well, I'm lazy, out of work, massively depressed, and trying to distract myself from tragedy... so it's this or sleep.

No worries, and I didn't mean anything negative by my statement (I sincerely apologize if it was received that way). I immensely enjoy your models and am glad that you chose to share them with us on the forums.

No, no - I didn't take what you said as negative. And most of my depression is oriented around the suffering of someone very dear to me, and the unknown regarding her future. But, no, it just is what it is - I am in a hole right now, and I pray things will get better. Thanks for the compliments.
