Custom Hot Wheels: Steampunk 2-4-2 #4
Made the stack with a little piece of copper pipe and flared it with a flaring tool.
Not sure about using the hood.
Time for some nitty-gritty figurin'. Enter the glass and sharpies! Planning phase on how to bolt it all together.This was my first idea- laid it all out, bent it all up and didn't end up liking it.
The goal was to hopefully get something along the lines of my penny engine in there so it could actually be POWERED...
The first attempt at the frame:
Looks like a pooper scooper.
Attempt #2. Frame rails.
Liking this- lots more room to tweak and adjust as I go, and I think in this case less is more.
Yeah. Starting to dig that.
