Zeppelin over Madrid

| 29. April 2012

Cudos to Decimononic for sharing this lovely Zeppelin image. I have to say, though, it looks manipulated. Never mind. Steampunk largely is fiction, so visual fiction is just fine.

A Story in Pictures

| 3. September 2011

Hello everybody, I just wanted to give you a quick update about what will be happening over the next few days and I have collected a few images to tell you a story, but I will be brief. I sincerely hope the story is comprehensable, the images I chose are clear enough, Ithink. Anyway, here […]

Reichsflugscheibe and Zeppelin

| 8. August 2011

I really dislike people faking photographs and pretending things happened that actually never did. I mean, just  look at this one: There are several things wrong with this picture: Obviously, the shadow the Reichsflugscheibe is casting is far too small. The propulsion system of the Reichsflugscheibe would never had allowed it to get that close […]

Historic Zeppelin Postcard

| 29. Juli 2011

Again it has been a while since I last posted something about Zeppelins. A shame, really. This time the image I want to share with you is from a historic postcard. I may be mistaken but the city forming the background for LZ-129 Hindenburg in this image is Frankfurt. I am happy to be corrected, […]

Zeppelin Snapshot

| 25. April 2011

The weather over Easter has been excellent so far. Temperatures are more like middle of June than end of April. I am not complaining at all.

| 1. April 2011

It has been a while since I posted a Zeppelin image. Shame on me. I used to do it far more regularly. But, never fear! Here is another one and I hope there will not be another huge gap before I post the next one:

A Zeppelin made of Words

This is the content of this blog, brought into the form of something vaguely resembling a Zeppelin built from the most common tags and words I use:

Amazing historical Photograph

| 8. Oktober 2010

My sincerest thanks and kindest regards once again to Luftschiffharry for sending me this terrific scan of an actual historical photograph: Schütte-Lanz Luftschiff SL 20 and König class battleship Großer Kurfürst, most likely during or just before Operation Albion in 1917. I do not think this is a propaganda photograph but who knows. In any […]

Some more on the Ratte

| 26. Juli 2010

While skimming across the waves of the Æthernet in my relentless search for blogging-material I came across yet another artist’s impression of the Landkreuzer Ratte: Excellent work, Cudos to Von Brrr. Von Brrr also has a number of other impressions of experimental vehicles in his gallery, so take a look. And another thing which makes me […]
