Edit:

I reworked the shuttle based on feedback to make it truer to Steam Punk traditions... may I present mark 2:

Not sure if this belongs in Star Wars or Sci-Fi... but I figure since it's based off of Star Wars build I'll start here (Mods - feel free to move this).

One of my co-conspirators for Star Wars Day - Toronto (in support of Sick Kids) built a fantastic Steampunk X-Wing. It looked so cool I had to build something to go along with it.

So I present my Steam Punk Imperial Shuttle:

This would be my first Steam Punk and SW build based off an existing design... C&C always appreciated!

Awesome! I love all the bits on the wings and such. Do the wings fold up, too? I like parts on the wings that mimic the mechanism that reels the wings in(by rope/cables, whichever). Or maybe they're just there, I don't know. As I always say, where's the steam?! :tongue: You could maybe connect some to the brown wheels on the back? Assuming they're the engines...

This is now one of my favorite MOCs I've ever seen! I love how you've done the overall shape of the shuttle, made it recognizable, but still made it look Steam punk. Great job!

My favorite Imperial ship and you’ve done a great job with this steam punk version. I love all the gears on the wings, excellent details! :thumbup:

The wings do fold up!

Though not well :(

The used to fold up great but after I added all the steam-greeble it doesn't anymore... I decided the cool look was cooler than functionality - so I left it as is.

Haahh told you guys I was a steampunk noob - I forgot the steam!

Can we pretend that the ship is docked and not powered up? :look:

Okay I'll go back tonight and add some steam... I think I have a few ideas... Hopefully I can make it work.

Very cool. Like others have said, it looks very steampunkish while still being instantly recognizable. :thumbup: However, I think you overdid it a bit with the greebling. Most of it doesn't seem to serve any purpose and the wings just look cluttered with all that random stuff on them. I would get rid of some of it, especially if it keeps the wings from folding properly as you say. Other than that, great work!

Thanks for the blog post!

I agree, I was rushing and didn't really 'plan' or think this through, I just added greeble and gears for gear sake...

I've scaled it back a bit and remembered to add steam again:

This creation is amazing. It looks just like the Imperial, but in steampunk.

I love the use of colors and how you created the steam in the back. :classic:
