Designer’s Notes –
I hope Flight Works appeals to a broad range of audiences. My goal was to design a set which was both artistic & functional, while keeping true to my own sense of fun. It wasn’t until after several hours of tinkering around with LDD & completing about half the building that I decided on a Steam-Punk themed workshop. Which, after 5 seconds of thought, I ‘punnily’ named Flight Works. I’m rather proud of the end result & would like to see this model ‘take off’. So, eject some steam into this engine by clicking the support button & together we’ll make Flight Works ready to soar!
