Artizan, I was under the impression that the contest ends 11:59 tomorrow night, not in one hour. The topic page says:
The deadline is 11:59pm PST on July 26th.
. Today is the 25th. Maybe I am reading it wrong, but take it as you will. :)

Here's my steam powered TIE fighter. I tried to give it a nice Victorian flair by adding some ivory scrollwork and detailing on the wing support/steam engines. The propellers can be rotated for manoeuvrability and it has 'repeating rifles' mounted below the cockpit. I figured the Empire has the funds for fancier fighters than the Rebel Alliance, so the TIE fighters have a more finished look with all-metal construction.

Here is the Darth Vader Tie fighter ancestor. In the end of XIX century it was the first vehicle able to move faster and higher than hot-air balloon. It worked like an autogyro but with a powered rotor to increase rise speed.
It seems simple but the main aim was to build something light for one pilot, to maximise the speed and the manoeuvrability so on this version, only the side rotor's engine are protected with steel.

Hope you like it.

Here's my entry into the Star Wars Steampunk contest - the Alpha-3 Nimbus-class Victoria-Wing. It's based on the V-Wing (in case it's not that obvious ;) ), and features twin rotary paddle-driven engines, landing gear, rear chimney exhaust and steam engine (replacing the original Astromech slot).

Here is my take on a steampunk version of a Vulture droid. As you can see this vehicle takes two operators. This craft is piloted by the dilettante Arabella Haversmith (lower right) and co-piloted by the venerable Doctor Professor E. 'Brain' Dunstaff (in the vehicle and also the inventor). The main pilot controls the craft in flight and walk modes while the co-pilot monitors steam levels, hydraulics and the transformation controls.While clockwork automatons are fine for most tasks Prof. Brain felt the operation of this vehicle was better left to living pilots.

May I present, the Airship HMS Jedi Interigible! Piloted by the feared Jedi Master Qui Biberint, who is as deft at laser sword play as he is at drinking the bottom out of his wine glass! Thanks guys for the contest.

Hey,
This is my second posting for this contest, but its not my build.
I post this for the MOC by markus1984 who asked me to do that because he somehow couldn't post a picture right now due to some Problems with his PC.
I hope its Ok that I post it for him :)


No, that is not ok. Entries by proxy are not allowed. But this is my bad for not catching it sooner, I should have noticed the same B-wing twice. :facepalm: Gonna have to reset the poll. - Don
