Well its been a whiles since I've posted anything on here, modelling has been a bit slow on the ground. However I have cobbled this together over the past few months of very sporadic building. It is a small scene based on the inciresingly popular 'Steampunk' genre. The majority of this is scratchbuilt/converted. The Beetle is from CMK (with some spare dragon tracks) The figures are a mixture of various brands, heavily converted. The clock and street light are completly scratched and the small car/buggy is built around a BMW R75 sidecar (Tamiya, I think).

Very impressive! I particularly like the street light and clock - great to see imagination at work! :clapping: :clapping: :clapping:

Ben, I love all things 'Steampunk' and that is absolutely brilliant! Another example of your remarkable modelling skills! Great imagination, scratchbuilding, and the transformation of kits into something completely different. I just LOVE this! :blob: ... :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy:

Wow! I have first seen your diorama now. And what a treat it is. Yum!
I was looking for inspiration for a Steampunk ship model and found your stunning street scene. Well done!

Jesper.
