I've done two flying saucer figures, the purported WW II German Haunebu II, some years ago, and the real, if unsuccessful, Canadian Avrocar, more recently. Thinking about what a production Avrocar may have been, I wondered about a steampunk flying saucer and found two examples that impressed me. I decided to create a Victorian era flying saucer using those images as inspiration. It'll be a while before this is complete, but here's a peek at the basic shape and a landing leg test article.
Pretty much packaged up and in the release schedule.
Here's the back story with a preliminary scene render. The scene is inspired by the image that prompted my creating this product, and will have many more elements when finished.
In 1897, near the end of the Victorian Era, drawing on emerging electrical technology and developing his own pioneering concepts of magnetic plasma flux propulsion, the brilliant engineer Eugene Lentier built his first flying saucer, the Explorer. The Explorer line was so successful that Lentier expanded into the military market, manufacturing light gunships.
