Question
Are we all still doing this? I know that Cap'n Kris has stepped out for religulous reasons (She religiously avoids cons) but who is still in?

Are we going to have dog tags? Or some kind of unifying identification? If so, what should they say?

Have we picked a name for our vessel? What is it?

Is there anybody out there?

Hello?

What do you guys think of having dog tags proclaiming Name, Rank, and the 53rd Airborne?

Hey, Guys!
How about some clever shirts for slumming it at the 53rd?

THINGS and also STUFF
Oh cripes, I've been neglecting this thing a bit. Don't forget, people, if you see some nifty reference material or a good deal on something that looks useful, post it with abandon.

Thought I should put this up somewhere: the current crew roster! Currently taking applications. Enlistment in the Flying U 53rd includes no health benefits or meals, must supply own uniform. :D

Captain: Kris
First Mate: Tina
Navigator: Kat
Engineer: Mike
Fusilier: Holly
Cook: Cody
Semi-Professional Bastard Gentleman Adventurer: Sean

Plus a few nifty links for visual inspiration:
Civil-War Era sorta-soldier ladies (I'm going to be drawing heavily on this design)
Zouave uniform (mostly period)
Nifty military surplus overcoats (not period at all, but customizable as hell)
Nifty European military surplus overcoats and like a million other things

And of course one must punk it up properly.
GEARS AND LENSES AND STUFF AND THANGS.


It's getting to be time to start thinking about actual construction! The plan is for the Flying U 53rd to conduct maneuvers at NorWes, and that'll come faster than any of us realize. Find a pattern, find some fabric, and give yourself lots of lead time so you can screw everything up and still have time to make something rad out of the wreckage. :D
