LZ 200 Version 1 finals

Yes indeed fellow adventurers the final photographs of the first model of the L.Z. 200 are now available for your viewing pleasure. It was the first of its kind among the day as aerial battles were limited to bomb dropping Zephyr's. Later with the improvement of propellers devices and Zeppelins technology more weight could be supported by smaller vessels. The L.Z. 200 was the model that made it happen. With the state of the art light weight engines and new high
efficiency balloon it could do things in the air that no other could before.

The first battle of the skies over the rough pass of ocean between Lydon and Evermoon Isle advanced the war onward. The old fashioned giants of the past were no match for these smaller, more agile, deadlier ships.

However the Ermonlin Empire was able to capture a still intact L.Z.200 and released there own version. Which delayed the invasion of Ermonlin by Lydon. Thus started the every advancing of the L.Z. series even further. In which eventually led to the once again growth in size of the aerial attack ships to eventual giant flying fortresses. As well the infamous L.Z. 2000 which was the greatest vessel ever created. there was only one ever made and never lost a single battle in all its unnaturally long years of war. Yet that Ship and the unfortunate advancement in war is all that's to this now seemingly modest vessel.

P.S. versions 2 and 3 coming soon.

LZ 200 Hull: Part II

Dear fellow Adventurers,

The hull of the L.Z. 200 has much more to it then first seen. Due to unforeseen circumstances we were not able to show you the finished design. in this rendition the ship has rope as well piping to the engine and exhaust.

As well the full placement of the the cannons on the vessel in the standard of the military ships.

Due to the location of where I post these aether net transmissions. the flag of the vessel is of the Lydon Empire.Even though they no longer produce them for new military assignment the factories still make the L.Z. 200 for local military police action. as well for the nomads across the Hakon Mountains.

This is Professor Philander Grindley Signing out.

P.S. final photos of finished vessel coming soon.

The next phase of the construction of the LZ 200 is the choice and placement of the armaments for your warfare.

Were as navy vessels tend to have one repeating cannon and four standard cannon. the Pirate fare usually will only have the repeating cannon due to its nature to cause less damage but fire more rounds. the pirates usually have two cannons that fire more of a grappling hook type device for the boarding of ships.

Ship hull of the LZ 200 Steam Airship

The hull design of the LZ 200 was such a successfull creation that three models were made using this design. In fact most countries still use this time honored vessel. However, with the ever growing demand of faster, stronger, and even larger ships in the Lydon and Ermonlin Empires the LZ 200 is riding out its last days within their navys.

Still said the most of the world still uses it and those who captain the remaining ones never wish to transfer to newer technology. below are some shots of the standard vessels hull. more to come on the various parts and models.

about to start

So finally I have gotten started on building the mock up of my model and doing final testing on the various parts. I decided due to the quantity of pieces as well the various customization of the model I shall break it into parts. The first shall be the ships hull. Second will be the armaments. Third engines. Then finally flight devices.

Some of the custom parts are: 4 flags of various nations from my world (more to come, plus feel free to make your own). 2 Types of engines. 2 types of cannons. And 2 types of flying devices with 2 versions of the balloon method.
