Seems that the Passepartout III is even larger the its two predecessors...

And that was it for now from my end!
Like I mentioned before, the main story (wherein we see much more of the trade show and Weisshaupt and Zeppelinwerk etc.) is currently ongoing and happening at Ariane's Private Place, starting here!
Furthermore, Grinder$ is about to show us the trade show from the MARSEC perspective, with the story line starting here!

(And next up: Part three of the ToyCo Christmas trilogy!)

Poor-poor Keisha. Babette never really appreciates her costumes.

Hopefully Keisha will find a more appreciative audience at the trade show...

At least she get's a free Poobah t-shirt there.

Seems like the attendance will in any case be quite worthwhile for her then!

jet propulsion + blimp seems like something Maerc might have stolen from Team Europe

hope they've got better query/response on their anti-drone/anti-missile system

Being an accessory to theft of blueprints from said Team Europe (or more precisely Babette breaking up with him after she found out) happens to be exactly what pushed Pierre-Renard into his current trajectory...

And anti-drone/anti-missile system? Given Babette's emphasis on pacifist applications of airships, the Passepartout III is not likely to have that.
(So let's hope that literally shooting down the competition isn't all too common at trade shows...)

Then it’s canon. Those stolen blueprints were sold to more than one buyer.

Now there’s something worth seeing in person.

I should point out though that Pierre-Renard went to great lengths to bring back specifically the Passepartout II blueprints...

However: It has been established that he got coerced by his cousins to help them steal stuff on several occasions before, and maybe Babette's team had already been experimenting in general with the "jet blimp" principle.
(The Passepartout I had strange propellers, but maybe at some point it got upgraded to a jet-propelled Passerpartout 1.5...)
