Just for reference sake{not trying to be pushy here}- look up these movies on the web;
-Steamboy{a few pieces - not many}
-Last exile{lots of ideas here to go by}
-5th element{the big cruiseship}
-back to the future3{that steam engine is a winner}
-League of extrordinary gentlemen{there's a few there that are cool}
-Sky captain and the world of tomorrow{not pure steampunk but theres a few items}

I was at the LHS yesterday and spied the 1/720 Hindenburg...that could have some potencial.......as well as blackbeards pirateship.....

I have the Zvezda #9026 Battleship Knyaz Suvorov in 1/350 scale...got it nearly 85% complete but lost interest in it and shelved her...however, after taking a closer look at it lately I can see a steampunk build coming....swap the two upper masts for helicopter rotor shafts and take the 6 smaller lower deck side guns out and add two side outriggers that would be forward and rearward propulsion units...she's old iron, runs on steam and I spose I could toss the rotor idea for balloons too..........shall we play?!

What about a MaK SF3D campaign. I would say a lot of modelers have one of these in the stash.

I'd go that route....seen plenty of blimps on ebay, the newer 1/200ish hindenburg is out again....these would be great for that top section of your build, now ya just gotta figure out the bottom!

This is too intriguing to pass up, I may give a steam powered tank ago.
Oh dear the old grey matters starting to smoke
