Hello again folks! It's time to lift the curtain on my next project: The Pax Imperia!

She's classified as the Arkellian Royal Airship, used exclusively by the Arkellian Empress to travel from place to place. Crewed by only the most devoted and loyal soldiers of Arkellia, this ship is a force to be recokned with.

Featuring a special draconic type sail pattern and a streamlined zeppelin balloon, she's capable of reaching speeds unmatched by any other ship in her class size. She's also adequately armed for any scenario, whether fending off pirates or enemy battleships!

***UPDATE***

She's completed! I added room for 12+ crewmembers (in addition, room for 8+ officers), additional cargo space, a workstation/armory, a propeller, and a couple additional sails.

Enjoy!

*** UPDATE ***

Due to recent theft of my work by certain servers, I am removing all schematics of my vessels for personal security until further notice.

I was meaning to ask, how you do the balloon on this, atm i just use WE to lazily paste wool spheres together, but i'm after a more streamlined zeppelin shape for my next airship like this, is there a particular technique you use for it?

I got the idea for the balloon looking at some of the other shipbuilds on here. I noticed some people did some really streamlined looking balloons, so I thought I'd emulate that by doing this. The formula is pretty simple, start at the middle like you would a regular zeppelin, make a circle (depending on the diameter you want) and then slowly taper it down to an "egg" shaped point. It took me a couple tries. If you want I can send you a zeppelin ballon schematic so you can see.

nice to see airships getting a bit more popular on planetmc :)

another epic ship! *claps*

only thing *I* would change would be thinning out the front balloon support or making it more streamlined. it just looks slightly to fat in the profile.
