I don't have this kit yet,but I thought it may interest some,when I saw some new Ian McCue Art on Concept Ships.
He has a pretty cool sort of alt universe beat up seafaring series up.

I thought of this build(and a lot of other ship ideas)when I saw it,and I thought it might help some inspiration.
Cheers guys.

I saw those too. Very cool designs and the paint/weathering would fit these well.

Ugh... I almost hate that you posted this. I'm so enthralled that I started building my own version of one a few days ago. I have the hull about ready for detailing and started the cabins on the deck yesterday. Will post images soon.

Haha  :lol:  That's soo cool! I would love to see a junker type done by you!
Story of my life. I look at all this art in different mediums and get project ADD. ^_^
Here's a couple more I like that may have some reference or ideas for you. Ryan Church and Nicolas bouvier are 2 I like a lot and they do a lot of "ships". The others are concept sites I also like to view.

Actually,now that I think about it. There is also a book called " The Skillfull Hintsman" that has a very illustrated "ship" type journey retelling a brothers grimm story. It has a style that would probably relate well. (Lot's of junker airship type stuff)
http://www.amazon.com/Skillful-Huntsman-Visual-Development-College/dp/0972667644/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1292262571&sr=8-1
Hopefully I'm helping and not making it worse  :D
Cheers and good building!

Thanks! Heh... fun fact... I'm a distant relative of the Grimm's apparently from the maternal side. Imagine that? :lol: Might have to look for that Huntsman book.

Wow! Maybe the modeling and dios are inherited story telling abilities!  8) 

P.S. I just looked at that book on my shelf. Not quite as many ship/air boat specific references as I had originally thought. Still great book to have on the shelf though for lots of other stuff.

Grail,

Thanks for posting the link. I saw it a few weeks back and was really inspired by the illustrations. I also started working on a ship design based on the concepts…

I will post some progress shots soon… maybe in the minimal G, group build? I thin those will fit there perfectly.

Mike, It would be interesting to see what you come up with too...
