The French AeroFlot have launched a new Skyship in response to the Prussian armaments production. We must ask, therefore, where is the Admiralty? Is this great nation to be consigned to the status of pauper, because the Admiralty have not the will or perhaps the wisdom to act.

Where is the Prime Minister in all this?

Photo shows a French ship in the concept stages. I want the French ships to be very round and curved, with square turrets.

This turret is too large and the air recognition pattern will be changed to a more "French" color as the red really jars with the overall colors of the ship - yellow maybe?

All scratch built with paper and balsa. Still in need of some "steam punk" bits like funnels....
