The Rum Runner is a high speed smuggling vehicle with a combination rocket and jet propulsion for quickly moving contraband.
All vehicle sculptures are made from repurposed/recycled steel, copper and brass parts. They feature all welded construction. No glues are ever used. Each piece is one of a kind, rolls freely on its wheels and many include other working parts and hidden parts. All colors are natural metal color or a remnant of the paint from the part used. Each piece is clear coated.
The airships, vehicles, buildings, and vessels are all the same scale and go well with each other. They also match O gauge used for model trains.
Imagine a world of islands in a vast ocean. Travel by sea and air would be vital for connecting to other communities. It is a time without rules or regulations, a time with pirates and smugglers, a time with heroes and villains.
It is a world of airships that could easily travel from island to island, but also land on the seas as needed. In this world the plastics had filled the oceans, but evolution found a solution where zooplankton evolved that thrived on the plastic. A significant byproduct of their feeding was hydrogen gas. Plankton eating fish soon developed the ability to capture and retain the hydrogen in their swim bladders and floating fish became plentiful. People learned that they could capture the hydrogen and mimic the fish, and thus, the birth of airships. The hydrogen was combined with oxygen from phytoplankton supplying a cheap and unlimited energy.
This world also includes vehicles and even housing for the islands. With land at a premium, many of the buildings a
re on stilts or elevated. With unlimited energy, no regulations and occasional flooding, land vehicles are greatly over-sized, allowing them to travel freely across an untamed land.
