Throwing some ideas around for my own airship. For instance:
The ship itself is based on a basic principle of a dirigible. A filter takes out hydrogen gas from the air and contains it in a light, but 100% sealed air bladder, likely made of coated fabric. The fun fact is this particular design is also ship shape seaworthy, as the airbladder can be transformed into ballast for a submarine.
Because of this, the design is rather... fishy. :) Designed and painted… Continue

It would also break the… Continue

After arriving here I promptly went about and dressed up the place. My "My Page" (redundant, yes I am aware) has been made up to a more civilized design. A liking of which I am sure most can appreciate.
