Designer’s Notes – 
I hope Flight Works appeals to abroad 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!

Thanks,

PS
This was my first submission to Lego Ideas as well as the first in a series of steampunk buildings I designed.  Special thanks to Polyprojects who did an amazing job turning my sloppy LDD files into usable instructions.  Also I feel the need to apologize as you'll have to make a lot of color compromises if you try to build this set.

Designer’s Notes – 
To expand on my Flight Works submission, I decided to create Post Air. I wanted to put a unique spin on an every-day task, so started thinking how Steam Flyers would change the way we live. I’d like to further expand on this theme, so shovel in the coal by clicking the support button!   Together we’ll turn this boiler red hot & watch the steam fly!

Thanks,
