I'm not sure what 'punk this is. I recall having suggested calling it Kerosene Punk.

It is called Hell Hound, and it has a fan driven by a radial engine.

Diesel.

That's a radial engine in there (note exhausts out to the side).

Perhaps - But... I was thinking that many shapes of the aircraft are a bit on the modern side of what usually seems to pass for dieselpunk.

It's a bit more streamlined than most diesel punk aircraft & shy about 100,000 rivets but definitely diesel punk to my eyes.

:-\

A couple models by Dieter Bihlmaier I've been meaning to post for a while. I would consider these both more Dieselpunk (or alt-WW2 in the case of the tank) but I guess that's in the eye of the beholder.

The E-55 tank- LINK

The airship "Grief"- LINK

Too bad I haven't found any "in progress" shots or articles for these. I can guess at some the parts used but it would be cool to know for sure.

No! ;)

But there is some serious raptor (bird) inspiration going on with the cockpit & nose of this thing! :o

The general lines of that steam flying boat seem to owe quite a lot to the Latecoere 631:





Pretty thing, possibly one of the prettiest flying boats ever. Distressingly crashy though: 10 built, 4 lost... ???

How long until Industria Mechanika do a submarine based on the general shape of a Humpback?   Diesel-electric of course.

Seems a shame, but I suspect Water-borne planes of all stripes have a higher-than-average failure rate - hazards of the enviorment and all that.

The painting is gorgeous, and while I wouldn't build it as is, I will defiantely milk it for inspiration.
