1113 - Whaleship Draft II

Not completely happy with the earlier version of the Whaleship, I went back to simplify my original concept of an upside-down dockyard strapped between two dirigibles.  Yes, it's been done before, but the visuals speak for themselves.  The Whaleship now looks like it's doing what it's supposed to do: be a gigantic airship cargo hub and a city in the sky. 

There's four Skookukway Carriers assigned to this particular Whalseship, and one Skook is undocked.  Also, there are several Sky Reaches running around as well.  

This picture reads well upside-down.  Not surprising, since I drew half of it inverted.  I like the dockyard being underslung, though, since it makes the carriers easier to load and unload, and it would be a spectacular place to work.  Dangerous, yes, but spectacular.
