Steampunk Rhino Ray Gun Tank Biped Walker SUPER DETAILED All Wood Miniature
You can buy it at <[link]
With all of those Martian Tripod War Machines that have been landing lately around our dear English countryside, Queen Victoria hastened us to complete out own answers ... in this case the Bipedal Rhino Tank Walker; nothing more (or less!) than a giant, powerful ray gun on two legs!
It's a state of the art, nineteenth century marvel of a metal monster! The front half of the main body is devoted to the reay gun, a much larger version of our troops hand held Gaussman 7 model, while the back half to the bipedal locomotion. For it's bulk it achieves an impressive cruising speed on fairly leval terrain of about 18 miles an hour. A pilot and a gunner each have their own side carraige "baskets." A fleet is currently under construction...
I am proud to remind my viewers that this particular item is INDEED about 99.9% wood and completely free standing as you can see! Done in a slightly darkened, weathered metalic copper look. Enjoy!
This is one of my all wood (almost 100%) table top creations. It's one of my new branches of retro tech I am developing... specifically STEAMPUNK! Also (for me) ultra realistic items and even miniatures, but not always at the same time!
I paint and / or finish these with dark undertones and shading to highlight the details and then use layers of metallic and / or other coloring and finishes -- it's about 3 1/4" high, 3" long and almost 2" wide.
