ATHENA - Steampunk Airship (2)

Besides some sculpting experiments I spent the last few days fideling with the outline of the airship.
I finally setteled on the blimp-ish outline and prepared the ribs of the airframe on the computer for printout.
This I glued with (temporary) rubber cement to the cardboard.

Then I started to cut the first two ribs.

And then I blue-tacked them to the gondola.....


I'm afraid I have to go back to the drawing board.
I don't really like the outline. The bottom part needs to be slimmer and rounder, but the top is OK I think.
What do you think?
