Flying to the moon aboard a V&A Steamworks rocket ship

After seeing an earlier work in progress, I’ve been eagerly anticipating this lovely steampunk sculpture by Guy Himber (V&A Steamworks).

The expression on the moon’s face is priceless.

Guy’s HMS Brown Widow, aka “The Flying Rivet” displays his usual attention to detail, with sections of LEGO tubing as rivets on the trailing edge of the wings.

    That is an excellent moon. Looks like someone has been watching Smashing Pumpkins “Tonight Tonight”.

    Most Steampunk fans will probably recognize the first image as a reference to the 1902 Jules Verne-inspired film “A Trip to the Moon” (Le voyage dans la lune) by early French filmmaker George Méliès, considered by some to be the father of special effects. This particular shot is considered to be one of the most iconic in the history of cinema, and its Lego rendition is indeed very faithful to the original.
