I know practically nothing about trains, but I do appreciate them, especially a classic steam powered beast. And these two by builder Cale Leiphart are about as beastly as they come. At first I thought I was looking at different sides of the same model, then I saw them side by side and it took me a little while to spot the differences. The attention to detail and dedication to accuracy is impressive.
Now this is how you make an entrance! Builder baz is a newcomer to the AFOL scene, and this is quite the way to jump in. This is his first built, and it's 3 feet long, 3 feet high, 2 feet wide, and weights 10 pounds. But size isn't everything (in fact, it's not much in my opinion), this is just some stellar building and lovely steampunkery. Welcome to the fold baz!
Builder 2 Much Caffeine imagines the power of steam and the first quantum clocks in The Mark IV Automaton. Can you just imagine if the early breakthroughs in electronics and computers would have coincided with the age of steam power? It would have been really impressive. Then again we still can't get a robot to reliably open a door, so things might have gotten messy.
I've never heard of this game, but this brilliant MOC by Gregory Coquelz made me curious enough to look into. It looks amazing, both the gameplay and the design. The aesthetic of the game is awesome, and translates pretty well to this build.
Venerable car builder and auto enthusiast Lino Martins has broken new ground with this masterful MOC. It's a unique and mind-blowing mashup of car, train, steampunk and black magic (and they said it couldn't be done). I think both Grampa Munster or James T. West's arch enemy Lovelace would look right at home in this dark beast.
