Dieselpunks

Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

This Thursday, to celebrate our founder's birthday together with the French national holiday - a stylish fighter:

The Morane-Saulnier Type N, not the most successful WWI warplane (you can read about it here), this aircraft with a racing pedigree is an ultimate example of early Dieselpunk, with its bullet-shaped spinner. A few photographs:

The Type N further development were Types I (shown below) and V:

Petty officer Ivan Smirnov, a Russian ace, with his Morane Type I and captured German pilot. 1917

Happy birthday, Tome!
