Hello chaps, allow me to post some pictures of some of my previous projects:

Steampunk Space Helmet







This project was documented exhaustively (obsessively?) on the Brass Goggles Steampunk forum, it's down at the moment, but I've linked to it so you can have a look when it comes back!

STARBUG

Remember Red Dwarf?





A half studio-scale model, boy, did I have to do some research for this- all pre Internet, which makes it at least around ten years old!


Canard Fighter






A completely made up design, inspired by a plug-in nightlight! Engines made from a pair of book lights, swivelling wings, LED navigation lights, illuminated engines- this was a lot of fun to build!

None of them are mobile suits, but I've got some SF3d stuff somewhere, and a DUST Gunther half finished... :-)

Amazing works! The Canard Fighter reminds me of the Hammerhead from "Space: Above and Beyond", but much more evolved. Truly great stuff!

Very nice work. I loved the helmet when I saw it at Brass Goggles. The ships are nicely done as well. I especially like the Canard design.

Check out ZLuca's revisioning of the Gunther here. Luca does incredible work and resin kits.

Also check out some of FilmMkrs work too as he does great figs!

Very cool works! I can't wait to be able to see the Space helmet wip!
The canard fighter is a great design, do you have in-progress pictures for it?

Great job on the all of the models Herr Döktor, I really like the Steampunk Space Helmet. What scale is the Space helmet model? Sorry, but the forum that you have linked to is in Maintenance mode at the time I wrote this post.

Great job on all of the models.

The space helmet is full-size, and has two fans built in for ventilation; soon, I'm going to have to make the rest of the suit! :)

PS: The gears are turning at Brass Goggles, so hopefully the forum will be back up soon!
