An SN-18 Clock in the Faberge style

After purchasing one of Pete Virida's SN-18 kits and a few IN-18 tubes a case was needed to show it off.
Not something in the normal vein but something that would make it eye catching. The solution I came up with was an Ostrich egg shell.
The base of the clock was made from hard wood cut offs from some previous cases glued together and machined to give a nice round base. The brass work as from a pipe repair tube, some plumbing fittings and the addition of steam model maker's boiler banding. The buttons and LED shrouds were made from round brass bar. I added a second RGB in a perforated housing to the top of the shell. If you are wondering how it is fed a 3 mm brass tube containing the wiring was curved to the inside of the shell and runs from the clock board under the decking to the fitting for the RGB housing.
A plate is fitted to the rear for the cable inlets.



Turned out looking quite reasonable in the end!

I like it!! I somehow get an Art Deco feeling from it.

Look into it later when the dust is clearing off the crater.

It as going to be very ornate originally but I gave up on that when trying to make filigree brass parts.

Art Deco a la Faberge then!
