Having these ministures I can appreciate you've done a nice job on them already. I like the tie and goggles in particular.

I do wish we could post painting-in-progress photos, because I've just done the freehand "BLOODYEAR" across both sides of the envelope and it looks glorious and perfectly goblinesque!

Most of the paint is also done on the gondola; I figure if the main painting is done then worst case if I don't get the crew finished in time at least the flying vehicle itself can be submitted before the deadline.

I'm taking painting-in-progress photos - as I figure I'll republish the whole thing on my blog once we're done.

Me too, the blogpost is already a draft copy awaiting more photos!

Envelope - fully painted, ready to attach to the gondola.
Gondola - touchup painting to do tonight.
Base - finished, painted, and flocked!
Ground Crew troll - 80% finished painting, to finish tonight.
Goblin Blomp Crew - 80% finished painting, except for Gobb Cherry's colourful coat, which I finished building up with putty last night.

Bits of paint tonight, attaching envelope & gondola together, then do the rigging between the two.

I should be good for daylight photos and submission on Saturday, sneaking in right under the deadline!

Then I need to take a hard look at my painting stuff and see about LPL11...  Shocked

Well trollpoop. There has been a very goblinesque engineering failure!

I got the envelope attached to the gondola, which looks good.

Popped the whole thing onto its flying stand.

And watched the whole assembly flop gracelessly sideways.

I'll whip up a short temporary stand for photos and submit the Blomp on its own, I guess, then consider the engineering issues post-contest...

A great disappointment I am sure  Angry It is still a great build and useful after you work out the engineering kinks later.

Irritating, especially late at night after I'd gotten the two major parts attached for the first time and it was looking so awesome!

The current base is also built in a way that's going to be very hard to adapt or even shorten.

I've also since realized that the thing doesn't need a base at all to be submitted for the contest, having thought about it a bit more. The Blomp itself is more than large enough (8-9" long, 3-4" wide) to be contest-legal. I'll probably just find something to elevate it a bit for some of the finished photos when I take those on Saturday morning!

Well the build looks great!

Exactly - good to see a setback was only one step back after your two steps forward.

...

It'll all go together because opposites attract. Laugh (Man, that was all unplanned too!)

Final photos taken... with the Blomp standing on an inverted pint glass, because it was the right height and wide enough to hold the thing!
