Airships from abroad!

Hello all,
I figured I'd share something just de-lovely that I stumbled across. So, if you're having trouble sleeping, or just want to try and recreate the experience, let the dulcet drone of LZ127's engines send you off to dreamland!
Frankly, the wind noise could have been reduced a little, and I'm not entirely certain one would have heard the engines from the gondola (if passenger accounts are to be fully believed!), but it's about as close as one can get in the audio realm. Until next time, up ship!

Hey guys, I was just introduced to this pic and looks like if we can combine the pic example with real-world hybrid airship research like the Hybrid Air Vehicles Airlander 10, it could fit well in a Dieselpunk genre setting with its retro-futuristic look while looking plausible.

Oddly enough, I'd seen that recently myself in one of the Facebook groups I'm following. Small world.

Hey there, indeed it's a small world since I've just found your Airships gallery yesterday. It's a bonanza find for me as previous examples I've found for airship-style warships tend to make them little more than cut-&-paste maritime warships with little regard to the airships' environment. Your pics took more effort to consider airships are different from maritime ships and can't accept large, tall battleship citadels and turrets on top less they roll over and instead should be placed below for ballast and practical (i.e. shooting at ground targets) reason.
I've been interested in the Dieselpunk genre which introduced the idea of hybrid airships to allow the airship aesthetic to exist in-setting in a more plausible way.

When coming up with a Dieselpunk sort of "flying battleship", I always try to keep in mind what could be plausible. Even a very large 1,000 foot plus airship could only lift a few 5 inch guns as it's largest armament. Even with that, I would presume such a ship would benefit from lifting rotors to aid in keeping it in the sky. Another example would be that if I would design a ship to have superstructure topside, it would need to be aerodynamic. Any masts would be for radio and signal work, and likely collapsible for docking in a hangar. While I have experimented with flying carriers with flight decks on top, I do find it to be unrealistic compared to the setup USS Akron and Macon had in reality.

Miyazaki's "Laputa: Castle in the Sky" has always been rather inspiring in that respect.

well thank you for not accepting my blimp pics,
I'll not bother you again.
