    Love it! Great work there. To me it's a mix of Steampunk meets Bioshock :D SUB'D :rock:

    No, may be it looks like a mix of Steampunk and Bioshock but I never played this game. :)

    Continuation:Have made a blowhole from some aluminium cover.

    The center was then cut out and the paint cleaned off

    After cleaning I have painted it's back side.

    Then made the blowhole fixators and put everything together:

    Did you copper plate those screws? Or are they actually just brass screws to begin with?

    These are just brass screw-bolts. I polished them with a drill.


    LooseNeutral, thanks! :)

    Now about the reservoir;
    As I said, aluminium will not have contact with water.

    Have sealed all with the sealant and epoxy glue.

    Then I found the water thermometer and set it into the reservoir. :D

    This is a really fun build so far. Especially looking at where the case started!

    I really like the leather trim on the radiator. Reminds me of a couch my parents had in the 80's. :D
