Steampunk airships in Lego

Reader Pixel’s steampunk airship is the only way to travel. If you’re a minifig, that is! [Pixel's flickr]

In similar vein, the Empire of Steam is a steampunk world-building exercise implemented entirely in Lego. Elephant-mounted missiles in the Boer War? Check.

    Actually, I had sent a link to BB not too long ago about an actual contest over at http://www.reasonablyclever.com/
    to actually build the biggest and best Steampunk Millennium Falcon out of actual LEGO, but they didn’t actually post it.

    Oh well.

    I say, chaps, is that airship rated for Venus?

    Ruddy Martian liftwood’s rotting out of the old aetherflivver, what-oh. Damned scaly wogs can’t get the ruddy bugs out of the caulking, and you can’t find good old British tar & oakum anywhere on the bloody planet!

    Anxiously awaiting your reply, I remain, yours, &etc.

    The image you have up is actually my LEGO airship the HMAS Lord Vladek

    And while Empire of steam is a very cool undertaking, my airship actually has nothing to do with it.

    Actually, I actually need to use the word actually more in my comments.

    Hello…

    Been away with work and not checked online for a while. Only just seen your link to Empire of Steam

    Thank you for featuring it. It’s a little labour of love and constructive comments like yours make it feel worthwhile.

    Lego and steampunk. If you could somehow work in a magical girl playing ukele you’d be a complete parody of boing.
