    thought I'd better start including a scale cube in my posts, so here's my latest creation:

    The Hexidecimal Ocular-comparitive measurement'o'tron :

    All in all, about six hours work, nothing to difficult just a bit tedious cutting out the cogs. This one I wanted to finish quickly rather than spend an extraordinary amount of time with neat and tidy.

    ...need a good lie down.:cry:

    Thank for the happy comments.

    It's pretty much all card / foamcore with a bit of aluminium wire and some LEDs. I used 5mm foamcore for convenience, but it would probably be better making the blocks from thinner, folded card. oh yes, it's painted with acrylics.

    sorry, there won't be a download. The models are comprised of about 400 lasercut 1mm card pieces, which I built as christmas presents for my family last year. They were planned to be inexpensive, but I kinda got carried away, (as usual), and ended up with an extremly late christmas eve to get them done on time.

    They are a bit random in nature, and pretty much impossible to do instructions for. Alot of the cogs, for example, aren't attached to anything but the one next to them, and virtualy nothing makes sense. They just look pretty.

    here's a couple more pictures, including the one I did for my Brother, in a more Manly rusted finish.

    and some shots of the inner layer, not immediatly obvious in the other pictures:
