So I have a an airship that has been kicking around in my head that I haven't had the time to start building, at all. However I figured at the very least I could start on the mis-er, self-propelled bombs, the HEIGHT of technology, I tells ya. I originally used bronze helmets with black propellers, but that ended up too bland:

So I switched to silver. Sadly I only have 1 silver Arabian Helmet :( I'll have to rectify this soon. Any tips, comments, or criticism would be appreciated!

Your pic on flickr shows this really well. And yeah, the silver has a more menacing and complete look.
Great use of the Arabian helm, looks perfect!!

Very neat use of the helm! The usefulness of BF products never cease to amaze me.

Sweet! It looks good!
Maybe you could get some black helmets, and make stealth self-propelled bombs, for stealth planes 'n such.

This would look really look cool in black, but without the propellers and such, like a MISSILE XD

I agree, a missile would be cool.

Thanks for the comments, guys!

Brick_Smith: I think stealth planes is a BIT out of the reach of the technology in a world of airships and steampunk ;)

Blue Moon Knight and levos: Well this is the steampunk version of the missile ;) The idea of a propeller-driven missile was what started the whole thing, really. As for a black cap, I think that might take away from it a bit, as it is now, it looks like a metallic cap to help pierce the hulls of other airships. I feel it also gives it more of a primitive feeling too :9
