An older LEGO MOC I made under the "GenuinelySynthetic" name, the Nova I airship was my first attempt at a Steampunk style MOC. While I didn't have many pieces at the time for such a project, I still wanted to make a small, one man flying machine. It sort of came out as a jumble of certain parts but I've remained fond of it. The Nova I is tied to an older and discarded story. It is a vehicle designed by the inventor Jenn Gicky as a personal means of transportation. There's more, but it doesn't seem relevant anymore.
