H. G. Wells Time Machine

This was built for our community theaters production of the christmas carol. In the script it was said that the ghost of christmas past arived in a fog of smoke and bright light on a version of H. G. Wells time machine. I didnt have much time so its a little crude but if I ever got the chance to put it back together It would be more exact to the movies time machine but as i had to put it together overnight this is what i came up with.

    Hello! I am the director of a small non profit that does retreats for families with children with developmental disabilities http://www.wellnessgifts.org/ and this year's theme is time travel. I usually build something cool, safari - life sized paper mache elephant, giraffe and zebra, Space camp- a rocket ship, Island Adventure- a giant volcano that we made erupt. I really want to build a time machine like this but I am not sure how to begin... does it spin?

    Wow! You sir are a genius! I have got to say that is just magnificent! I freaking LOVE it! As matter of fact, you've inspired me! I'm going to take a shot at making one myself this year! Many thanks!
