Steampunk GB
Posted by modelcrazy on Monday, December 2, 2019 12:16 PM

Steampunk, dieselpunk, cyberpunk, biopunk, atompunk, stonepunk, do you feel lucky…punk! Retrofuturistic, neofuturistic, postapocalyptic you get the idea. Think Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, 20000 Leagues Under the Sea, Metropolis, HYDRA, the Borg etc., etc.

Anything goes with just one rule, no building out of the box, at least without adding something to it. You must add something to it. Not just a machinegun gun or something small, I mean let yourself go. Grab a battleship turret and add it to a car along with armor and a cattle guard. Put tracks on a locomotive, helo rotor on a sailing ship with Ion engines. Don’t just put German markings on an At-At, put wings on it as well. If you want Space 1899, cool. The Arizona as a pre-Dreadnaught, we'd love to see it.
This group build is for those who use their imagination.
No rivet counters here, no wrong camo, no wrong hatch placement, the antenna will always be in the right place, nothing will be wrong.
If you have a box of parts and ever asked “I wonder what I can use this for?” or “I can probably use this somewhere” well, here’s the answer to those questions. An exhaust pipe can be a steam pipe, an F-16 intake can be a smokestack. This is the chance to clean out that old parts box and have fun.
The start is Jan 1 2020, the end? I don’t know yet, I like open ended GB's, I promotes more participation without the pressure.
So come along, our imagination is always working. We’re modelers, that’s what we do.

Open to anything steampunk, not just vehicles and such?

The past couple of years I've gotten interested in machining, and I've been considering making some steam punk things just because I like the look of brass and steel with an attitude.

 

I've got a lot of crazy ideas but some may not exactly qualify as a "model", prop might be a better word. 

 

Definately interested but will need to put on my thinking cap for this. No not my historian's thinking cap, bring me my mad scientist's thinking cap!

Aaron,

Anything goes as long as it's out of your imagination. It doesn't matter what material it's made of, what era it may be in, it doesn't even need to adhear to the laws of physics.

I put you down. Holler at me if that's not correct.

Yep, leave me on the list, I'll come up with something. Don't know what but I've got a few weeks to ponder that.

I just bought a small horizontal mill that came with a ton of gear cutters, so I'm thinking there will be gears involved. The mill was built in 1944 and has a bit of a steam punk vibe to it all on its own.
