Right, imagine that money is no object, and delivery times are negligible. What would be the one thing your fevered imagination could come up with that you would want to receive this Festive Season.

Personally, a fully functioning Steampunk house would be on the top of my list.

A boat I think. Probably steampunk.  I have sketched a design for a yacht, similar to a Freedom 70 crossed with the Lord of the Rings ghost ship with 3 unstayed masts, but in wood, copper and brass (oh and a little carbon fibre - it wouldn't be punk otherwise would it?)

Or, a narrow boat for use on the English canals. Again, I've been working on a sketch of an original layout based on an icebreaker hull.

Yacht ~ £1M, narrowboat ~ £70K - both beyond my reach, but if you want to dream, dream big!

yes, but with modern free standing triangular sails not lateens, a flatter poop deck - this contains the crew cockpit and sun bathing deck. The bridge is just in front of the aft mast, abaft the coach house. Forward deck between forward mast and main mast is clear deck for the tender.

Diesel electric drive, using diesel waste heat for hot water and heating. Electric propulsion motors using Voith Schneider screws. The whole thing would be an experiment!

If I won the lottery three times over? I'd be looking at a Steampunk submarine, complete with tastefully-finished dining room, proper tea room with a surfeit of portholes, and staterooms (and crew) to match. I actually have a scaled-down design I've been planning out, of a wooden "submarine" (about 40 feet long at most, I think, since we'd need to be able to pull it in a trailer with our truck, and also trailer it legally along the highway (and under the power lines!) which is actually a boat that merely looks like a submarine*. The upper third of it, aft of the conning tower, would be glass panes (that could open, at least along the top edge, or the thing would get unbearably stuffy pretty quickly!) so you could have a nice sunny spot to have one's tea.

More realistically? Well, a really decent-sized gift certificate to the local fabric store would be pretty awesome, or an appropriately-voluminous PayPal account, for the sole purpose of picking up beautiful Steamy objects online that I otherwise could not afford or could not justify. You know. Things like five hundred dollar hip flasks and three hundred dollar watches, things like that.

Mind you, if I could have aaaaanything, a steam-powered, Hindenberg-sized airship complete with crew and outfitted for long-term living would be pretty sweet. Also sweet would be to have one of those Steampunk private clubs in every town I live in, like the one they had in that one episode of "Castle." That would be pretty sweet too. Grin

* And then I wouldn't need to worry about making it air tight or buoyancy or ballast or air supply or any of those niggling details. Also, it would look rather like a large Steampunk fish.

A private library with a collection of pre-1900 occult and scientific books....

Preferably with carved oak bookcases as walls, cast iron spiraling staircases, oak reading tables...... (to be continued ad infinitum)

No, I am not demandig.... Grin

The Lego Monster Fighters Castle.
Ever since someone here mentioned how the theme was very steampunkish, I could not stop taking my eyes of it.

So yes, this.


Also, Lego just released a image of 1 of the figures from the series 9 blindbags.


Holy crap that is just awesome.

Sounds like where I work!..Ok we had the cast iron spiral  starcase taken out 2 refurbishments ago but the rest ..dark stained wooden book cases, leather topped reading tables, pre 1900 occult and science books (not to mention manuscripts and early printed books on those subjects dating back several centuries) yup...sounds just like work.

A Victorian house with a big kitchen, a library with a ceiling high enough to need a rolling ladder and a workshop.  Two workshops, one for sewing and one for other projects so the fabric and glue/etching medium/sawdust don't interact.  And a budget to slowly steampunk it.

A dual-rotor, gyrocopter, ironclad.

That is, like an ironclad river boat, that flies through the air. It gains lift from two gyroplane rotors, one on each side, and thrust from a single pusher engine in the back. All guns are only on the port side of the craft, because it attacks by strafing targets like a C-130 Specter Gunship.

Ironclads and Gyrocopters are my passion. Someday, I hope to blend the two.

I asked for Peace on Earth once... and I got a picture of Earth with dried Peas glued to it. Now I know better.

Aside from a fully stocked workshop, and a house to decorated the rooms of as I please, I wouldn't say no to a Sonic Screwdriver.
