Design a steampunk airship
Aimee needs help designing a
steampunk airship. Any takers? (Roland?)
For story reasons too
complicated to get into here, I'd like to have most or all of the
living quarters down in a gondola suspended below the balloon. So more
like the semirigid or nonrigid airships in the diagram above, although
I'm not actually set on it not having a rigid frame.
The Hindenburg had
capacity for 72 passengers and 40 crew members. It was 250 meters long
and 40 meters in diameter and used hydrogen gas to stay afloat.
Here are a couple of
other diagrams that floated my boat. (Click on any image to find the
source of the pretty pictures.) Now I'm ready for your ideas --- go!
