Steampunk Dalek

Wow! Alex Holden created this fantastic steampunk dalek sculpture out of a plastic Dalek bubble bath bottle:

The main body is made from a plastic Dalek bubble-bath bottle I bought very cheaply at Woolworth's in the post-Christmas sales. At the time I had no idea what I could use it for, but it looked too cool to pass up. I disassembled it and spray-painted the parts with a can of gold Plastikote paint after masking off the two silver arms on the front. The wheels, cylinders, chimney stack, and 'bumpers' came from a rather tacky brass model of Stephenson's Rocket I bought for £5 at a car boot sale.

I don't see any thing wrong with Steampunk styiling.

have you see the new way cheap stereo equipment is going? all flat silver. No wood grain, no choice of color... and everything looks like a "Transformer?"

to miles batty,
in addition to the piston connected to the axle, the top valve on the water level indicator is non existant, meaning a broken sight glass can not be changed in service. this is obviously not a davros design.
p.s. are you lot in u.s.a.? i see a time difference. i am in scotland.

some of you people live too much in these other worlds, which are great fun but, not actually true.
here in our world we still live very much in the age of steam. my ex mother in law when i first worked in the nuclear generating industry said: "i don't know why they don't use electricity like everyone else" she seemed to imagine thousands of little nuclears running along cables and killing everything in a kilometer radius. to all steamophobics most power stations (including nuclear, coal, oil,and gas) just boil water, make steam, turn turbines which turn alternators to make electricity. the only difference is the fuel, having worked in all types give me nuclear any day. it is cleaner and safer to work in and gives a decent amount of predictable power compared to windmills, (which i think are a waste of space, all figures having been manipulated by the green lobby [using the word mills instead of turbines is to demonstrate how much i dislike this form of generation, i like to tilt at them.])
