That's a beautiful scene! I like how the airship's free end is slightly raised - it gives a good sense of buoyancy. The ship and water look great, too.

 This came out splendidly! The airship is a really nice touch, and the launch gives a great sense of scale to the scene. I'm going to have to try your water technique for the Revenant.

Finally finished this one off. Anchor chain and final rigging.
As it is a Steamship, smoke from the stacks is pretty much required. Added a Torpedo boat tied up alongside, but placed only, it could go.

Well, I think it looks great, BT! 8) 8)

Although I really like the torpedo boat, I think it adds an oddly uncomfortable asymmetry to the dio, so I'd suggest it either going elsewhere on the dio or, going[STOP]

Excellent! The Science Pirate Syndicate largely avoided the HMVS, even when operations expanded into the Pacific in the late 1880's. The latter's early adoption
of Air Scouts being one reason, their excellent gunnery being the other.
