Victor Vitale takes steampunk into the Old West with this teeny tiny airship airboat piloted by a pair of U.S. cavalry soldiers.

    I love alternate universe stuff like this.

    Nicely done!

    Shouldn’t the description be ‘airboat’ rather than ‘airship’? They’re quite different things (unless I’m missing the point).

    Not being a follower of steampunk:

    How is an airboat or airship of this design supposed to stay in the air?

    I can see it boat-ing well, but as for being in the air… I just can’t see it happening.

    Not that this isn’t totally awesome.

    Thanks for the Blog, Andrew.

    And yes, it’s supposed to be an air-boat. Glad so many like it! :)

    Now that makes much more sense. I was stuck on “airship” and thinking that an airboat is a little airship, kinda like a boat is a little ship (to a point)

    I think “airboat” works reasonably well in a steampunk/cattlepunk context, regardless of how it’s used by gater-hunters and Horatio Cane. ;)
