    Comparison between the old and new foot, so the case will raise more than 5mm.

    I have the handle that is the same design and create the new screw to the side (with a butterfly nut and a screw), but according to the tematic.

    thanks Vetalar and good luck with your work log.
    I begin with the creation of steam chimneys, these I will make with a 110mm PVC pipe, and these were placed on a 4mm fibrofacil wood, to which I will cut off for the placement of them. To perform the chimneys decorated with the same pipe.

    I continue to design the paper real size to show how they will be different elements, there will be slight changes to the original design because of the measures of various elements such as the dome is larger than the drawing, but will allow a better view interior.

    [OT]IMHO my "work" didn't deserve a WL... i make it from trash and all i can pick up from my "workshop"... i think my cardboard boxes, pieces of PVC after bathroom repair, mobile phone chargers as PSUs didn't achieve the level for posting here... i can see really brilliant logs here and i just don't have enough goodness[/OT]

    *watching Your log for more steam*:rock:

    I´m always a bit concerned when it comes to steampunk buids. There´s so much crap out there IMO. But this one looks really interesting... And I just love domes!!!

    Thank you :D
    I'm half disappeared but working, the problem that each piece takes several hours, cutting, sanding, caulking, painting, sanding, painting, etc..
    I cut the two side panels, one for the dome and the door and the other for SteamPlanet logo.
