Steampunk Mauser combo by JohnsonArms Steampunk Mauser combo by JohnsonArms
Here's a couple merged photos showing both sides of the steampunk Mauser I'm working on. It doesn't exactly hold to the purist envisionment of SP, but I think it's going to look pretty legit when its all done. as an added bonus, it also won't fall apart the second you bump it into something! lol



PSST! For anyone actually reading these blurbs, the piece under the "steam tank" is R2-D2's foot! Please don't tell George Lucas! ;)

You know, you're making it REALLY freakin' hard for me to explain to people that a gun expressly made well after the Victorian era which practically defined warfare in a time period more suited to Diesepunk can't actually be Steampunk. It looks too damn good to argue with. :p

Ah thanks man!  I absolutely agree that they fall more into the diesel punk category, but I'm really glad it came out okay with the steampunk-ish feel.  :)

*Too* okay. Next thing you know people are going to be asking for Steampunk AK-47's and Glocks and... dare I say it? *Pulse Rifles*. It's a mad world you're allowing to exist, Brian, and you are its unwitting ruler. Use your power wisely, lest it use you.

So what you're saying is I should maybe rethink this steampunk rocket launcher??  hehe  On a serious note (you know that doesn't happen very often!), I've always felt that any trend or established design was always started by someone not unlike ourselves.  I almost feel it is our job to flesh out new ideas and bring them to light.  Trends fade and become obsolete, so the only way to ensure future interest is by being the ones who set the trends.  You do a great job at pushing those boundaries as well.  I hope somewhere down the road people might look back and appreciate what the modding community has done towards making high quality work more accessible to the cosplayers and also aspiring film makers.  Especially those who don't have the budgets to afford the work coming from the major prop houses :)

I agree with everything you say, except one.

The generally accepted beginning of the use of Rocket Launchers was in the mid-1200's in China. They were called "Fire Arrows" and were they were commonly used against Mongol hoards. The technology had existed for long enough and spread far enough by the Victorian era that there actually were Victorian rocket launchers of relative complexity used primarily for naval applications. So point is, don't you dare stop development on that steampunk rocket launcher. ;)

Haha, I promise!  Did you see the Myth Busters where they recreated the fire arrow launcher?  They had about 100 of them all going off at one time and it was epic!

With renewed enthusiasm I will proceed with the SP Rocket Launcher :)
