The background of the story:

My concept is about a imagine world that have similar background as 1930~1950 Europe.
There are 2 planet like earth were very close to each other. Imagine that when we look at the sky we will roughly see the other planet is just on the sky. Both planet are just get in the Steam Punk period. Flying technology are getting advance because of the unique position of both planet located. The Gravity of both planet make the gravity of the middle part are lower than usual, almost same as the space (0 gravity).

The 2 planet have very different political system. We call the lower planet - The Empire Government while the upper planet are rules by several kingdom.

This is a very chaos period, The Empire having war to the upper planet. The upper planet unite as a powerful government that we call - The United Government.
Since the war begin, many mercenary soldiers, sky pirates also active in this chaos period.

This is where our story begin, "Queen of the Rocketmen"
The story start in a ship that belongs to sky pirates...

here is some sketch of the concept
the initial design for the interior of the air ship that the story take part.
and the jet pack of the sky pirate, and how they function inside the waiting room..
the equipment stand is to recharge the power of the jet pack and the machine arm of the stand is to arrange and positioning the jet pack to the rocketmen.

thanks stevie and varma.
hope can catch up the deadline

here is the following update of the concept.

the dragon design airship ( empire government military )
steampunk viking design, the mouth of the dragon the weapon of the ship.
click the link

the wau design air ship ( the united government military )
wau is a traditional kite from south east asia. the first idea was came from Jean Pierre, and i develop after our discussion, thanks to J.Pierre.
the middle part is the command center and the ship design concept is base on environmental protection, the ship is functional by wind.
click the link

Since the gravity of the planet is different, so the ship are designed base on the situation

thanks :D

the design of the sky pirate air ship also done
it is slightly smaller than both government ship.
the flying theory also energy saving, when reach some height on the sky, the ship can fully use the fan to keep flying on the sky. the 4 fans on the wings are help to keep the ship floating while the turbo behind there is to push the ship moving forward. while the border of the wings equipment is to control the ship up or down. then smaller wings behind there is to control direction.
