Love your idea! Come see us-- Victorian-style camp

Postby cfilson » Fri Jun 06, 2008 11:51 pm

Hey! Though we are not registering as an official theme camp, my friend and I [big steampunk fans] are doing a sort of Victorian lion safari thing titled Out of Africa, 1875-1907. Numerous tents, Union Jack flags flying, furniture, mosquito netting, bustles, bourbon and croquet-- the whole bit! Leaning towards a sort of women's hellfire club thing..

We'd love to see you! No clue where we'll be camping as yet, but we'll definitely come by for some tea and trouble. Please relay this to anyone else you think would be interested or is doing something along the same lines, would love to chat!

Thanks! And for anyone in the Los Angeles area, there is a Steampunk Ball a week from tomorrow [Sunday], June 15-- held by the Malediction Society [they have a myspace page].

Not affiliated with them-- we're going and we'd love to see other Burning Man people there. Drop me a note if you are-- we'll find you!

NOOOO!!

I was gonna charge for airship parking to help pay for the trip. Could be a good moneymaker if we're anywhere near the main stage.

Lookin' good Zorch!


Update and progress.

Patched the rather large holes in the casing last night.
I didn't want to add too much thickness to the area on
the exterior of the casing so I used a piece of plastic sign and
packaging tape to fashion a mold over the hole.
smaller cracks just got the tape treatment.

Image

I then layed on a coat of resin from the inside followed by fiberglass cloth
overlaping the edges of the holes by about 3 inches.
About 4 layers of cloth and resin total. Small cracks
recieved one or two layers as deemed appropriate.

Image

I peeled off the tape and sign plastic ( I didn't use a mold release but the resin doesn't
stick very well to this type plastic) to find a smooth repair that will only need a tiny bit of
filler. The tail section is sealed and primed as well.

The ceiling in this room is just over 8' high.
I have also applied filler to the nose to smooth out
a rather lumpy patch job performed sometime in the
distant past.

Hindenburg burn was overrated. Most people on it survived but for a few jumpers. It was that crazy guy on the radio that doomed Hydrogen crafts.

Excellent! Will bring you a box of PG Tips, extra loose tea filters, some good loose tea, and will watch for teapots at garage sales. Carry On!

Hydrogen is actually unnecessary. The difference in lift between Hydrogen and Helium is quite small.

The Germans were using hydrogen in their dirigibles because the US, then the supplier of almost all the worlds helium, had an embargo against them. There were a large number of trade restrictions put on Germany after WWI for the purpose of preventing Germany from re-arming itself. They Hindenberg was full of hydrogen because helium was unvailable to German airships.
