My first steps into steampunk Answered

Picture of

I've just taken my first steps into steampunk with a small display and I thought I'd share some pics.
I made all the clothes and there is an LED in the contraption behind the blue window.
I was making a pair of Victorian style boots for Sybil, but ran out of time, so she has a pair if Barbie shoes for now (good thing Barbie has ridiculously small feet for her size)
The male doll is 5 1/2 inches tall.
I'll finish the boots at a later time, but I had to finish the display to a point today as the miniature group I belong to has a display at a local model show this weekend (anyone in Newcastle, Australia - come to the Our Town Model Show :-)

That looks cool. No instructable?

lol, maybe. I can remember how most was done. It's just when I start making minis I tend to enter 'the zone' and do heaps before I think to do something like take a photo.

:-D You need to set up a Webcam and just record video as you go. Then you can frame-capture the best bits when you manage to escape The Zone ;->

OK, have decided to do a step by step on making the little display unit as I have an idea for another one of those. Plus, I'll do a photo Ible of the steampunk contents of this one.
I'll have to wait till after the weekend though, just a bit busy with the model show.

Why not put this up as a Photo I'ble, in addition to this forum topic? You could add commentary on how you made the pieces...

Very cool. That control podium looks vaguely Dr. Whovian. Love the great detail on the goggles and tophat!
