Steampunk War-plane

This is a Steampunk War-plane.  Powered by steam the propeller spins and pulls the airplane along the runway until it gathers enough speed.  Once this happens, the wheels jerk up and become wings (see pictures for examples).  The angry gunner on the back takes care of enemy craft while the brave pilot keeps the airplane safe during flight. 

My goal is to make a LEGO Steampunk theme possible.  Using steam to power airplanes doesn't seem very realistic in real life, but in LEGO, anything is possible.  I think this War-plane would be a hit with LEGO fans of all ages, The adults would like the details, and the children would like the play features.  It would be a short build, about 30 minutes and uses about 150 to 200 pieces to make.
