Some-times You Just Get Carried Away...

In my last product update I promised its getting big. And indeed: a 45 meters long Steampunk Aircraft-Carrier isn't the smallest thing in SL.

The aircraft carrier with monoplane ready for takeoff.

View at the rear of the aircraft carrier.

The carrier is designed for aviators who like to combine having a stylish airship as place for living, without denying the opportunity of having landing strip  nearby.  It is the ideal platform for starting aeronautical excursions!

The aircraft carrier in its full length.

A steam-engine installed in the rear provides the power supply. The engine is belt-driven, fully animated and uses a geared transmission to drive the propeller.
It is comfortable to operate via menu. has 3 forward speeds, and one backwards. As usual the scripts are designed for low lag and high usability.

The steam-engine is fully animated and has authentic sounds!

The way up to the landing deck is provided by an elevator which unfolds and retracts itself automatically for not disturbing the sleek and elegant shape of the ship when not in use.

 Clicking the door unfolds the automatic elevator to the flight deck.

A special carrier-version of the Steampunk Monoplane is included too. It has the ability to fold its wings when on the ground to take less space on the landing deck.

The landing deck with Drow pilot (not included) and monoplane in parking position (included).

As all my creations the carrier shows my distinctive handwriting: Functionality combined with style without wasting prims. The prim-count for the fully equipped version (including steam-engine, chandelier and carpet) is only 107!

Final flight-trials, tweaks and constructing work are still in progress, but the carrier will arrive the marketplace very soon - stay tuned!
