Kenneth Oppel - Airship Aurora Paper Model - by RocketmanTan



Bryan Tan, aka RocketmanTan, the North American designer and modeler of this really nice paper model, says: - "Kenneth Oppel's Airborn has always held a special place in my heart...reading it in elementary school the book whisked me away to an alternate world where the sky was populated with great flying ships...where there was a whole world hidden within the skies themselves, where pirates, airmen, and native creatures roamed in freedom, skittering above the blue waves, visiting lands unknown and uncharted. As much as I like to credit Star Trek for inspiring me to become a sailor, I feel that Oppel's Airborn planted the seeds of that wanderlust, that desire to see those far-flung landscapes the Earth hid away from those stuck to the land...and, well, although the journey has been tough, like on the seas I shall brave the storms and hold fast. This model is my own little tribute to Oppel and that book which started it all for me."


Bryan Tan, aka RocketmanTan, o designer e modelista norte-americano deste modelo de papel muito legal, diz: - "Kenneth Oppel's Airborn sempre teve um lugar especial no meu coração ... lendo-o na escola primária, este livro me levou para um lugar alternativo, um mundo onde o céu estava povoado de grandes navios voadores ... um mundo inteiro escondido dentro das nuvens, onde piratas, aviadores e criaturas nativas navegavam em liberdade, deslizando acima das ondas azuis, visitando terras desconhecidas e escondidas. Por mais que eu goste de acreditar que Star Trek inspirou-me a me engajar na Marinha, sinto que Kenneth Oppel's Airborn plantou as sementes desse desejo de viajar, esse desejo de ver aquelas paisagens distantes que a Terra escondeu daqueles presos à terra. E, bem, embora a viagem tenha sido dura, como nos mares vou enfrentar as tempestades e "segurar a onda". Este modelo é minha pequena homenagem a Oppel e ao livro que começou tudo para mim."
