Obviously done deliberately, as a style.

The jar appears to be draining from the cooling system, in this case.

As does this more fixed installation. This is how you know it's time to admit your rod is a rat.





Ratty truck rod.

That's an SP. The Maltese cross suggests it was in West German use sometime after the war.

I returned to the museum for Ausarmourfest 2017, and saw this:



Converted from an M3 Grant tank.

Somewhere in the original Kuranda markets, which, by the look of all the little haphazardly piled shop structures, should be more steampunk than you'd think - except it's ended up not steampunk, but hippie. There are some places to shop there that appear a bit more steampunk, though.



At Frogs' restaurant in the Kuranda Heritage Markets, these were part of a museum collection that ended up there.



This was Geronimo, a WW2 (C-47? Or DC-3?) which became an airliner after the war, remaining in the company's possession until the early 80s when it ceased trading. In 1983 it was partially sunk in the sea as a prop for Sky Pirates, a lacklustre attempt at a Two-Fisted Tale. When found in the junkyard, the owner just gave it to the owners of the place that would eventually become the Heritage Markets.

Like the repurposed tanks, all stripped down - very sculptural. And markets are always good!
