Excellent!

Reminds me of the old timey airplane engines with the pistons in a ring being the propeller.

A cool way to keep cool

But what is it doing to the air being blown?  That skull is ominous.

  that was the intention, when I saw the fan with the two blades, I thought of an airplane propeller.
  And from there I went further, the rear part had to look a bit like a engine,
  But I found it difficult to built, there was not much body to build up Sad

I find the skull a distraction - don't really think it needs it (perhaps something smaller?) - but, great work all the same. Grin

I don't normally go for skull docorations but the skull and crossed wrenches are working for me, I like it.

I have to agree with Banfili, not a fan of the skull (get it  Roll Eyes) But apart from that, really nice use of bits n bobs, and really must find me one of those rivet guns........ I like it!

 thanks for the comments!

 I missed something, and in the old days they used frequently skulls on their propeller aircrafts

 therefore, at some point it seemed funny to me to place one there with goggles.

I meant in no way to be derogatory in my remark. I have been involved in a biker type scene for 30 odd years and the use of skulls ( and flames) is really over done. Just my personal preference.

That piccy of the plane on the otherhand is rather cool and I really like it, so I can understand your thought processes.

Many thanks for taking the time to share.
