By the Beans of Life do my thoughts acquire speed
My hands acquire a shaking
The shaking becomes a warning
By the power of caffeine do I set my mind in motion

Very nice job, sir!
The sort of weapon that makes the person facing the business end feel rather threatened!

...I read that as "Capt'n Nemo's Pacemaker"... I had to check how you would Steampunk a pacemaker! It looks great - I'd wear it!

Actually, powered by Kraken, it can do whatever you want. A simple matter of dosing...  ;)

Wonderful detailing; it is unmistakably the weapon of choice of a submariner and the design of its 'business end' really does look like it would be as effective in the depths as in air. Lovely build.

Yours,
Miranda.

Thank you !
I agree readily that it's a steampunk tinged with a kind of sci-fi forties (thirties ?), with a little bit of Disney and finally, a little bit of Mary Poppins.  :)
And that's exactly as I like it.

King Kong neutralized.



Golem neutralized.



Kraken neutralized.

Hmm... you obviously have a better class of flea-markets where you live. I do like the Kraken - that was a wonderful find. A fitting Peacemaker for Capt'n Nemo!

The screws are a little too modern looking.

Quite fantastic- I love how you integrated the Kraken!

I am fully aware of that. Planned for the Release 2.  ;)

Steam-compatible items like this one, YBIWYSI, you buy it when you see it. In case when. This octopus was waiting in my boxes for a long time.

Kraken neutralized, Release 2.



With very particular, but no doubt the contextually best fitting screw head "cover caps".


Banfili

The good old press stud - so many ways to use them, they are a great multi-purpose piece of kit!

And, for comparison, this can be found on Ebay. Well...


Banfili

No comparison!
Yours wins, hands down - or should that be hands up!
