Slightly modified from something I built on: www.planetminecraft.com/server/visgar---247-creativesurvival---no-whitelist/

This ship is clearly drawn from a different technology base than those observed in the past. Rather than conventional engines for propulsion and gas balloons for lift, the longship uses the wind to drive itself forwards and large opposing rotors to carry itself aloft.

Like the real ship that it is based on, this airship was designed as a transport rather than a traditional warship. It fights by getting in close to its target and deploying raiders. Its strength is its simplicity and rugged construction.

I had a lot of fun doing the sail for this one. The hull design is pretty hard to capture in Minecraft at this scale.

This is awesome! When I first saw it I thought it seemed kind of weird compaired to your usual design, and Vikings and steampunk don't go together, right? Wrong! They fit perfectly together. This is just an awesome build!

Loving the new design. I like how you've went into a totally different kind of Airship design than you usually do. Impressive.

Man i love your airships! Great job on this one. Are you going to make the Vikings another faction in your air fleet or is this just a lone ship?

Probably just the lone ship. It is tough to upscale this theme since the originals were never that large.

But I may do more with sails and rotors. It makes for a nice change from the balloons, and I think I am happy with this design for the blades.
