Whelp. It’s been a while since my last post about ASDO – New flatmates moving in and going away meant I’ve been busy and maybe kinda forgot about this for a while. And also haven’t done anything worth writing about, I suppose. But I’ve been scheming about my plans for the future including some Steampunky projects, so I should have some good stuff to write about soon.
I have two plastic guns to steampunk mod, which I will be obsessively documenting the process of doing. I seriously regret not doing it for the first one I did, partially because I can’t quite remember what I did! The first one I have planned is a sister gun to the one I made for ASDO; quite literally – it’s the same base water pistol, that my sister bought at the same time I bought mine.
The second is going to be a more challenging project. The base is a pound shop bubble blowing gun, but besides the actual bubble mechanism, I’m hoping not to use much of the original build because it’s very flimsy plastic and there isn’t all that much to work with. I also want to make a bubble mix holster of some kind to go with it, so that should be fun.
Finally, the League of Splendid folks have just introduced me to the wonderful world of Teapot Racing. I can’t resist a challenge or a remote controlled …well, anything really, so I’m going to attempt to build my own racing Teapot in time for next summer’s ASDO. I haven’t built a remote controlled model since I helped my dad make a petrol-powered remote controlled Mini Cooper when I was about eight or nine, so it’ll be a learning curve but one I will happily embrace.
So a short post, but hopefully a longer one should be on its way in the near future.
