Ossiter's application

Ossiter

I call her the good ship Improbable. A ship of Wombatus' got me interested in making an air ship some time ago, and this is my first go at it. It's a WIP, but nearing completion of the main parts. After the sails are done (there are a couple more to make) I'll complete and decorate the hull, which will take a while. Decorating the sails will also take time. But I think it has some merit as-is.

If you go to x 82515 y 102 z -54521 on build you should have access to the whole thing. It's hard to get around in, I know. Working on it.

Most Disliked Since 2015!
I think this looks great but according to physics this would never fly...

None the less, one of the best structures I've seen.

Hence the name. :p

Thank you, though. I was going partially on an idea from Dragonworld by Byron Preiss and Michael Reaves (an excellent piece of young adult's fiction, by the way), in which the airships are powered by wizards who have to constantly channel a spell to maintain the airflow. Thus there would be no visible propulsion system (as here) and the aerodynamics wouldn't necessarily have to be normal, as the airflow would constantly be altered to suit the situation by the people holding up the spell. They actually used spoons to cast the spell...I'm not attempting to illustrate that.

Frothingluck, there is 5 (FIVE) pictures of it actually flying in the air, you have to believe that it can fly !!! :D

Ossiter I think that Vortex on Creative waits you hardly.
What is Vortex? And what is...waits you hardly?
