The empire on which suns never set

For whatever reason I really enjoy sci-fi Victoriana. There’s something about the pomp of the era of British Imperialism that is just so enjoyabale to see. Which is why Sylvain Amacher’s (captainsmog) latest model is a particular joy, capturing the spirit of the age alongside a good but if Jules Verne and H. G. Wells. Would be great to see some other examples of the Great Powers of ther era.
