Post the pics of the airships you've built and rendered!

I'll post mine as soon as I move the files from Imageshack to Photobucket.

Plus, I've got an impressive one in the works. It'll be done in a while. Possibly a week.


Go on, post!

If I may, shamefully, promote my own website, I have some airships (categorized as "zeppelins" actually) on display at my website.  None of my own I'm afraid---I wish I were as talented as the many artists whose work I feature there!  But perhaps they might serve as an inspiration to people whose artistic senses are better developed than me own?  Wink

No pictures of the ship in the forthcoming tale, yet, but the other day my four-and-a-half-year-old had to get five stitches on his lower lip due to crashing his first airship.
After the initial shock, pain and unpleasantness his response to the whole ordeal was simply (translated for your benefit):
"Can I have more balloons?  I didn't have enough."
Yes, I am a proud papa.

After some help from the mighty Adeptus Mechanicus Harold, I made this image of the one and only HMS Ophelia shortly after she went rogue and became an Airship Pirate Vessel.

My latest cruiser, the IFS Rosenrot. It's still in the shakedown phase, so no weapons have been installed, but this is, without a doubt, the single most powerful ship I've ever built in Gmod.

A minor tangent, for which I apologise, but perhaps relevant enough that I might be excused.  I notice that the accepted prefix appears to be IFS for a civilian airship, HMS for a Royal Naval airship, but I wonder if anyone can offer any source or precedent for this. 

I notice that the navy are a little funny about the HMS prefix, allowing 'stone ships' to be HMS, but requiring even submarines to be HM Submarine, at least on official paperwork.  I think Abney Park's HMS Ophelia was the first time I saw an airship with that prefix and IFS is a prefix I am not sure I had ever seen outside Arcanum before I came here.

That said, I do use the prefix myself in one of my pet projects; HMS Scylla and HMS Charybdis.  I keep meaning to render the HMS Scylla and HMS Charybdis in 3DS Max; a pair of pirate hunters designed to work in tandem.  (based on the idea that two smaller ships can easily out-flank one larger ship and get the all-important raking shots in)

In all of the Steampunk stories I've ever done, I always used HMAS (His/Her Majesties Airship, and RAN (Royal Air Navy).

Of course that's just for British vessels. Colonial would be USAS and USAN.

I only use IFS in remembrance of the Zephyr...

It sort of grew from there, and the ships I build in Gmod aren't necessarily civilian.

Already posted this somewhere else, but seemed an appropriate place to put a shot of the deck from an 'old world' airship.

Here's a view of Capt. Silas P. Morgan and First Lieutenant (Captain) Zorch who were kind enough to pause ever-so-briefly while I fiddled with the aperture and the flash powder.

From what I remember, The persnicketiness about submarines is that they are boats and not ships. So His/Her Majesty's Ship would not be appropriate. And maybe someone will to do the research could tell us why?

SMLS Prinz Luitpold, work starting shortly...

(based on a romanticized version of Bavaria along the lines of a classic fairytale kingom, where Ludwig II actually commissioned that airship and named to honour his uncle, avoiding the unpleasant end his reign took in our timeline)

My Airship, The Von Wagner, which proudly flies under the colors of the Prussian Empire.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Since a ship of this size, roughly 785' bow to stern, is impractical to land and far too large for a mooring mast, I have equipped her with a unique system, using engines of my own design built by Krupp Metalworks.  Beyond mooring, they have a variety of attachments which makes them superior utility engines for many jobs.

My own personal conveyance when circumstances require land travel for great distances, the Humboldt is a rugged and sophisticated amphibious vehicle. It boasts accommodations for myself, up to four guests, and a crews of six, with my field office, library, and salon.

And, for shorter jaunts, my customized Benz Autocarriage, which has had the original Otto engine replaced with a cesium-powered Bunsen-Mayer engine.

Lastly, an aerial photo of the Von Wagner moored outside Berlin, with the Humboldt being prepared for a journey to the capital.

I found this list of ship prefixes online. Might help.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ship_prefix

It would appear that airships in the british style would be HMS. I can't find any confirmation oin that as zeppelins in WWI were almost entirely German. The Americans had one they used USS for.

Also, interestingly for writers out there in terms of strict grammer usage speaking it isn't "the HMS Jingo-Bob" its just "HMS Jingo-Bob". Apparantly the definite article is discouraged.
