Hello Everyone,
I had intended posting photo's of my construction of a Steampunk Space rocket. Unfortunately I have lost them. (The card they are on is relaxing in the south of France somewhere.) I do have some photo's of the items I'm doing for the interior.
It started life as a brass tankard from a charity shop. When I saw it and held it upside down it said, "Spaceship", well it did to me. I'll try and post some more of the interior detail.
When I've finished, if anyone wishes to know how this or that was done. I'll certainly explain all with maybe some new photo's pointing out the construction.

As my victorian Gent' hasnt been in space before he's going to have a problem with the clock.

That's excellent; a control panel by Chippendale!

Is that because of relativistic effects...?

Stunning attention to detail; watching with interest.

Hello everyone,
Here's a little something that's going into my space rocket. Will need a very long wire though.
Although the late Victorians were just discovering radio waves, so it could be wireless?

Very nice.  1:12 scale?
I especially like the control center.  I'm working on a 1:24 scale organ that will fit in the corner, may harvest ideas from yours!

No scale, just made it so it blends in with the rest of the items in the spaceship. Because the original "Hull" is a brass tankard. So everything is scaled to that.

Had a sudden thought last night. How does my Victorian space explorer prove where he's been?
One, cannot present one's journey to outer space before the Royal society without photographic evidence.
I've made him a camera.

All the pieces look great and I love the mini attention to detail.

Will be watching this one (kinda hoping for a reveal on the brass tankard ship itself)

Fabulous stuff.

How about a picture of the original tankard? I promise more to come, as it's nearly finished.

Righto, now I am very curious to see how that tankard will transform into a Space Rocket.

I've finally finished my Space rocket ship. Unfortunately the making of pics are lost. I'm sorry about that. If anyone has any questions I will gladly try to answer them and post details of how it was made with some pics of what I used to put it together.

As I said in an earlier post, this is made from a brass tankard I found in a charity shop.


There is no set scale, it's just put together in a "that looks about right" scale. It stands about ten inches high. The two gas lamps and oil lamp flicker along with the pot belly stove. There's an overhead central light and a red exit light above the door. I'm going to make a short video to show the lights working, which I'll post soon.

Hope you all like it.
