Steampunk Props – Epic Vehicles of Mass Distraction!
April 29 @ 12:00 pm
Join David Lee of Hatton Cross Steampunk for a little show and tell! David will have his Steampunk Tank, aka “The Gentleman’s Armored Battle Carriage” at the panel and on display. He will discuss the making of such an epic vehicle, converting it to an electric powered vehicle, catching it on fire, etc. We’ll discuss how it became the first Steampunk James Bond car for DragonCon 2013. Time permitting, we’ll look at some of the other large vehicles David has built to include a Steampunk Dalek, a Steampunk TIE Fighter and other crazy vehicles currently in the works!
