We all have those dreams — flying around in our sleep. The ironwork supporting Nathan Proudlove‘s Mistral II steampunk aircraft carrier is inspired by Gustave Eiffel’s architectural masterpiece, topped with a lovely pavilion reminiscent of the Palais d’Industrie from the 1855 Paris World’s Fair.
Naturally, the crow’s nest hangs down, and the flight deck is primed with five auto-gyro bombers. I’m not sure I’d want to be in a glass pavilion with gatling guns blazing away around me, but it sure is pretty…
See what we though of Nathan’s original Mistral way back in 2006.
Am I the only one dying for bigger picture? Those are ridiculously small for the awesomeness of this creation!
I’d also really love a few more detailed shots. This is an awesome creation, lots of little character pieces, very stylistic. I’m also a sucker for big MOCs.
It’s an absolute masterpiece. Gotta love the massive vibe coming from it.
