interesting custom jobs

Post by hyphen nation » Wed Aug 17, 2011 4:32 am

These are just making the blog rounds, but pretty cool stuff...I'd be all over a brass faceplate modular...
Not sure I'd lump it all together in the steampunk bucket, but cool brass stuff for sure...

Retro, yes. Steampunk? Almost, but not quite. Most of it seems post steampunk. And no, I'm not trying to create a million sub genres (steamstep? :? ). I just mean chronologically. Still some cool looking mods, though.

Holy s**t, that's f-ing beautiful. And they apparently cloned (but also re-arranged) the silkscreened images from the E-II's panel; I cannot imagine the dedication and pickiness that must have required.

^^^ I didn't see it in gcoudert's equip list (and noticed the image was hosted on gearslutz) so was commenting from that point of view...but I'll second the question!

Regrettably, no. I found that photo on the web by pure coincidence.
