just a note for those  of us with an Ollie's Bargain Barn nearby;
                they have the Linberg Pirate pistols for 7.99$ each.....
                    at hobby town they are 19.95
                    i bought 2 each of all four models, figured i would buld one copy stock and Steam the second one, that way I would be armed and ready for anything !!!!

Thank you kindly for the information! I've picked up two of the blunderbusses and two of the miquelets. One of the blunderbusses I'm currently modifying, and I've no idea what will happen to the other three. I think I may do the same as you, steam up one of each and leave the other stock.

That's cool man. I'm glad someone picked up on the post,and got in to get a few.  i need to go pick up some bondo and shot for filler to get the weight and durability up,that is my only major concern with them as manufactured. so flipping lightweght that if you drop one it will fall apart.  Now on with the modding.

I'm thinking of pouring a bit of resin down the barrels since I'll be buying some soon and will have plenty to spare. I'm also considering attempting to use spray foam to fill them, since that should give them a bit of solidity without adding an excessive amount of weight. The guns don't seem to be too horribly unstable once they're assembled, but they can most definitely use a bit of reinforcing.

Is anyone else in the Baltimore/Maryland area going to be at the Fell's Point Pyrate Invasion on the 16th? http://www.fellspointmainstreet.org/pyrateinvasion.html I think airship pirates would be just as at home there as the more conventional sort.

30 April.  Much fun.  Wear your Pith, or Pith off, if you prefer.  Goggles optional, but we will be looking for them.

There is always a grand time to be had, just ask Jerry!


Cheers!

I have lived in MD for a few years and about as much as ive gotten into is the local SCA Haven.

As some one who is sort of new to steampunk, id love to find places to get a feel for the atmosphere.
I will keep this post on my radar, thank you for posting this (although it was a year or so ago)

I may show up to the Celtic Festival on the 30th, its just a matter of clearing it with my "driver" xD

I'm brand new to the forum, and to steampunk in general, but I'm definitely interested in meeting up and sharing projects and ideas, or just hanging out. Frederick or Baltimore seem like excellent meeting places as there's lots to do, and appropriately vintage buildings. Anyone interested, or involved in regular meetings of any kind?

Hello, fellows and ladies!
Austin and I are based out of Eastern Shore, MD and have been asking the exact same question. Where on earth do we go? We went this weekend the the Maryland Renaissance Festival in full Steampunk glory and got a lovely reception. There are small gatherings of Steampunk on the shore, but they're mostly closed-invitation. If anyone has any info or is starting a hopeful meeting, please let us know!

I'm meeting up with the Guild of DC people this Saturday if you and Austin would like to join us, maybe we can get more networking going. It's probably a bit of a hike for you, though I think it's closer than Baltimore or Frederick would be. Come on people, get active! Where's everyone else?!?

It's called Ching Ching Cha, http://chingchingcha.com/, Lord Wraste is coordinating things (see the "Guild of DC" thread, also under North America. Just skip to the last page of the thread and you'll see our posts.) We haven't picked a time yet, still trying to see when people are free.

I was at the Maryland Renfair today in my steampunk gear.  Heard from a number of people that a steampunk invasion is being planned for October 1 and 2 and for the last Saturday of the faire.  Can anyone make it?

Austin and I are going back at the end of the event (we hope!) We were invited last time, should be great fun.

Anyone in the DC area and close to are MORE than welcome to come out and play with the Guild of DC.
It's not an official group in the slightest, and I think I'm the only one out of the group that still comes on here at all, but I'd love to get together with folks for tea!

Having a get together on one of the next two Saturdays, so input on which one would be great!

Hey Wraste, what's up?

Yeah, just bounced on the Forum for the first time in...over a year, I reckon.

Yeah, Guild of DC...I should be paying more attention to that...didn't I start that thread?

Who's Polaris?

And Ian, you're in Silver Spring?  My Lady lives there, I'm in that hood on the regular.  I'm a Virginian, tho, In Arlington, and work in downtown DC.

Y'all have that Pirate's Tavern joint up near there, don't ya?

I kinda can't believe we haven't united the Guild, the League of Sophisticate Degenerates, and the Maryland group (sans fancy Group Title, to my chagrin... ;)) and done some sorta Air-Pirate invasion...we should.  The booze is good, they have Hookahs, and grub's decent-to-exceptional, depending.
Well that wolf has a dimber bonebox, and he'll flash it all milky and red.  But you won't see our Red Jack's spit, nug, cuz he's pinked ya, and yer dead.
