I guess I'm in for this challange also, it gives some experience at least.
Okey the driver I'm going to create will be mostly inspired by young english nobility ready to risk his life to test his new machines, in this case a flying machine!
The vehicle is a hybrid between a train and well a strange flying machine.
It uses a large steammachine to power its wings(Those large brown things
This is just a quick sketch to explain my idea.
