Nimbus Personal Unobtainite Aerial Conveyance Pod


Nimbus Personal Unobtainite Aerial Conveyance Pod
Piloted by Prince Frederich of Austria, hunting Martian Aerofauna

   Created by the gifted Italian mechanick, Giuseppe Ezzelino, the Nimbus is a personal conveyance that can carry a single individual through the skies at a terrific speed. The simple controls are easy enough for even a novice pilot to master quickly.

   Lift is generated, obviously, by galvanically-charged unobtainite crystals. Battery power for the unobtainite provides two hours of lift for a single individual. Thrust is generated by Nth Ray, copied from ancient Martian vessels of the Barsoomian period. This is the first privately available Nth Ray vessel to be offered on the market. The Nimbus is available through Ezzelino's building firm, Arsenale Shipyards. Pricing is such that if you need ask, you can not afford it. Arsenale Shipyards is also planning to construct a large vessel, tentatively named the Dreadhull.

[Editor's Note: At press time, each of these little beauties ran about $19. Kinda pricey, but they are neat. Personally, I think I would rather get a Skipray or a Dreadhull (when they are available). More bang for the buck, I think. But it might make a really cool device for your Mad Scientist leader to ride around upon.]

This does not look hard to make at all.
