This is the second installment of my previous lamp. (http://brassgoggles.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,40777.0.html)

It will have more details like pistons, a crew cab, a camera thingy with additional LEDs and is also bigger. The boiler is a 60 mm copper tube. Will contain a 20 watt halogene or LED spot light, and a dimmer switch. Bolts and nuts are temporary, I'll have brass acorn nuts all over, and a wooden base. Cables will run in one of the legs. I'll also replace the pistons with bigger ones.

Sorry for the quality of the photos, they are just mobile snapshots. I'll have someone photograph it properly once done.

Very nicely done sir.  It may shine a light on my reading material any time it likes.

If this one turns out as good as the last, this is going to be fun to watch progress.

It is rather friendly-looking, don't you think, even if it is a walking machine lamp!
VG work, there, Gozdom.

Some progress on the cannon, and wooden part uparmored. Weathered scavengers will notice the clock anchor part soldered to the gun pod. There's also a warning sign in crypto font, hard to see until patina will be applied. It says "heisser Dampf" (hot steam), but no one will know.

This is a little special.  After modifying an AT-AT, I can appreciate how much time, and imagination, has gone into this unique little masterpiece.
Very well done, and I look forward to the finished piece.
