Le Albatross (Work in Progress)

EbolaRocks08
Ladies and Gentlemen of the honorable 3D Warehouse of Trimble, I present to you the Albatross! This grand airship that you see before you was inspired by the airship of the same name from the novel Robur the Conqueror, by Jules Verne. As you can plainly see by the myriad of propellers that are protruding from her hull, this is a giant "Gyrodyne", as she utilizes her propellers for both lift and thrust. This airship, which is a true feat of modern engineering, was constructed in the year (whenever I want), and was designed by the brilliant engineer (Me, with the exception of the propellers, which were made by J-m@n [a special thanks to him]). She is equipped with thirty Gatling guns (modeled by me) on the upper deck and fourteen Whitworth cannons (also modeled by me), two of which are located in a barbette near the bow. Such a beautiful example of man's rule over the heavens is not without its drawbacks, however (I'm still working on the ****ing thing). That is why I ask of you to invest in this revolutionary technology, in the hopes that such machines will one day make our dreams of flight a reality! Please send your checks for £2,000,000 to 123 Fakesview Circle, Bumblyshire, London. (I'm probably legally required to tell you that the address that I've provided is not real, you probably shouldn't send me anything, and that controlled flight was first achieved over one hundred years ago [I hope that you knew that]. #air #airship #albatross #cannon #century #conqueror #dirigible #fiction #gatling #gun #gyrodyne #helicopter #jules #nineteenth #propeller #punk #robur #science #ship #steam #steampunk #the #verne
