Still continuing with the conversion.
Still got to add some more chains for the anchors. Boiler has been undercoated and being painted. Ordered some airship controls (levers etc) from Brigade for controlling the ship. Got to paint the floors to look like wood too.
Used two railway wagons for the middle bit. The roof of the van is being painted and will be stuck to the wooden frame. Got some nautical lockers on order and have some coal to add.
Keeping the front as it looks suitably Egyptian - fits with it's backstory. Toying with the name HMS Osiris. I like the rudder but it needs some more work done to it.
