    The first aircraft to successfully utilise the so-called "jet" steam turbine, the Thunderbolt was capable of astonishing speed.

      I love this MOC! It's such a gorgeous Steampunk piece. I love the use of the tall support pieces to form the fuselage which in turn allows you to attach some killer greebs. Looks fast and mean. Love it!
