Steam Police Modified Baracuda Airship

Recommended Posts

I'm not certain why exactly I did this, but I did. It's a steampunk version of my Space Police III Modified Baracuda tcx17 Cruiser, and I like the engine rather a lot. The back just tags along, like it did on the original. Here it is (with Conrad at the controls, of course).

(Note the propellers)

And a couple of comparison shots between the two:

I really like this. The engine is really nice and I like how you added a hint of (red or dark red?).Although is there a way to get better pictures? Overall it is still very nice

Thanks! I did use solely dark red - I really like how it looks on steampunk MOCs, it adds a bit of flair without being too bright. There is a way to get better pictures, but it involves setting up a photo studio, a task which I have neither the time nor space for. I actually just set things in my dad's leather chair :laugh:

I like steampunk. The engine is great and you have a lot of unique parts thrown in that really work well. Very nice!

Yep, the exo-force arms and troll helmets are great for steampunk. I thought the Dino Attack headlights were a nice touch, too.

If I wasn't copying the design of my original cruiser, I might not have included the tube. But part of the description of the original was that there are power conduits that travel around the cockpit and feed into the engine at the back. I wanted to replicate this idea in this version, but I didn't want to have them integrated with the curved parts like the original, because it's steampunk, and everything's out in the open. So I added the tubes, which supply power to the steering propeller at the back. I've grown to like them. I tried taking them off and it made the area between the seat and the fin look too bare.

I'm rather longwinded, aren't I? :tongue:

All I see are greeblies. Are there any pictures of the overall shape from a top/side angle?

Yes, I believe you'll see them if you scroll down to the third and fourth pictures.
