Made of steel, brass, wood and leather, this turn-of-the-century electrical outlet is oil-powered with a compression globe for inverse ionization of the power. It also has a hitch for easy hook-up to motorized carriage.

Really impressive!

Good explanation...  I like the idea of massive 50 pound plugs.

@withalligators: Good call on the blacks. I browned them a bit and it looks better. The scale is up for interpretation. As for the other questions, it's meant to be a ridiculous, fantastical steampunk machine-version of an electrical outlet, combining the commonplace with the overly elaborate (as the steampunk style often does). It is not meant to be logical, concise, efficient or compact, but rather mechanically ornate and obtuse in a pre-modern kind of engineering way. I stopped just short of adding a canvas set of wings to it, but with this approach I think the more ridiculous and unnecessarily intricate, the better, because that's the style; that's the visual interest.

A steampunk portable electrical outlet? I don't even think we have these!

Looks good though.

Pretty cool.  Is it a tow behind generator for your carriage?  Maybe brown down some those blacks on the main boiler thing?  Also, what's the scale here?  Is the outlet supposed to be the same size as a modern outlet?  If so, does it really need 4 wheels, and not a handle on top?  (I posted this in the forum, but am still curious)

Looks great, the metals are shaded very well

Very nice, I like it a lot! I can't tell if there's something wrong with the wheel's perspective or not, I've been staring at it too long.

Something about the wheel's perspective is bothering me...otherwise you've done a very nice job!
