Retro Robot Racer

Finished at last, after a lot of fiddling around getting an axle solution, my first Retro Robot Racer. This is hand cut out of tin and then painted and assembled with additional elements stuck on. It is influenced by timeworn tinplate toys, science fiction robots, vintage racing cars and steampunk. I don't know if it is steampunk, perhaps dieselpunk? I'm not qualified to say. Anyway I hope to make some more, and perhaps some stand alone robots, using the same technique.
