[Archive] Death Zeppelin

devlanmud:

I’ve been building a Chaos Dwarf Airship after casting round for a new project. I found a set of plans for the Goodyear Blimp in a 1/32 scale and reduced them a little









The finished blimp

I had to design the gondola from scratch.







These are pictures of embossing rivets to add detail along the edges.







I’ve just started painting it and I’ll add more pictures when its got some colour.

Technically this is a death blimp rather then a zeppelin. Especially if you used a Goodyear airship model scale; which is a great idea BTW.

Ender SpiteSworn:

This rules!. I want one…maybe 2

Zanko:

Awesome work! :hat off

Last year I tried to build one blimp too - but I failed! :mad

Perhaps I will try it again … :~

This is awesome!

I’m hoping to (eventually) create a ‘cult airship’ for my Strange Aeons setting. Any chance you could share where you found your plans? Having a document like that to reference would save me a lot of time!

Keep up the great work!

What's the difference? Nevermind just saw the attachment

Bolg:

Cool! I never saw all these pics. so awesome! how is the painting coming along?

devlanmud:

All painted and stuck together.







I still need to base it properly, I thought a chariot base would probably do size wise

This is where I got the blimp plans from Goodyear Blimp Plans The site is in German but google will translate it for you if you ask nicely

I printed it out at A5 so roughly 1/64 scale on 160gsm card stock.

I’ll put together a PDF with gondola bits if people are interested.

Karring:

Hahahahahahaha! Amazing!!! Simply amazing!!!

Marduk:

Congratulations on a fantastic conver… (?¡)

Oops, this is not a conversion, isn’t it?

Wrong subforum! You need your own subforum for “Awesome stuff built from scratch”.

vulcanologist:

Great finished result. Look forward to seeing this beauty painted! I’ve got a funny feeling that GW might release an airship when they re-do the dwarfs!

Kera foehunter:

That is a great idea !

And it freaking cool how you took your time to showed how you did it
