Benefice Aethership Macquette
Wood and brass model of Aethership
Built by Benefice Bludgeon IV, this macquette was crafted from exotic wood, cast and formed brass, and electrical devices.
Detail of Aethership
The steam-powered vehicle mockup shows a wealth of attention to detail, something sadly lacking in the building of the full size machine.
The artist presents an optimistic fantasy depicting the Benefice 13 in a low orbit, something that eluded the actual ship, since it exploded prior to launch due to an ill-advised cigar break.
