Lots of progress tonight!

Basic hull structure finished, added the rear camera station, first round of detailing added with rivet strips on the bow, stern, and both hull tanks. Added the Improved Non-Explosive Flautulator Engine midships.

Front-quarter view:

Finally, a pic with the balloon envelope held over the gondola to give some idea of what the thing will look like when assembled!

Impressive, and very goblin-ny (if that's a word. It feels like it should be.).

I'll admit I'm intrigued what the Infinity shuttle would have looked like, I've been pondering something like it for a while as well. Smiley

Goblin-ish? Goblinesque? Something like that.

I have to admit that right up until I got the most recent round of building done - the hull tanks and rivet strips - I was wondering how goblinesque the thing really looked. The base hull shape is fairly clean and streamlined and I was wondering how convincing it was going to be as a goblin-engineered piece of kit...

Adding the tanks, engine, and rivets has started to goblin-ify it properly, though!

Some sort of dropship or shuttle project has been under consideration for years, first in 15mm and more recently in 28/30mm, and I suspect it will come up for serious consideration at some point again! I keep bashing ideas around, sketching in various mediums, and looking for inspiration, anyway.

More blomp-work and probably another update here this evening; I should get back to the balloons and get some more of the fabric covering done. That's going to take at least two working sessions to get done, because with glue-wet fabric you eventually reach a point where you can't do more without wrecking the parts you've just done that aren't dry yet...

Wow - loads of progress!

Love your work with the styrene....maybe needs a bit of goblin bling, perhaps a couple of dwarves trussed up as ballast?

Tonight was greenstuff night for the gondola, and another round of gluing bits of fabric down for the envelope.

First, the gondola. I filled in the various discs on the tanks and engine, and then ran lines of greenstuff around the two spheres of the engine, intending to make it look like really, really terrifyingly bad welding. The sort of welding trolls do while directed by intoxicated goblin "engineers", say!



Also started on the base. Rectangle of craft plywood, big fat washer, superglue, greenstuff.

Also, that big guy on the right? He's got a place in this madness. Ground crew, and part of the "flying" part of the base! Magnets will be involved.



Finally, here's one side of the envelope, which is now mostly covered by fabric. Still chunks of the sides to do and both ends.
