Everyone would want a Time Machine. Imagine what you could do with one. Carl Merriam built his own, which is inspired by the classic H.G. Wells novel titled The Time Machine. The novel was first published back in 1895, an important note as at the time the wooden and brass styling was considered futuristic. Now this style is more often associated with Steam Punk, which that is based on old science fiction novels. The red, brown and gold colors here work extremely well, and the blue highlights pop out in a good way. Lego sure has come a long way, something like this would have been impossible to build 10 years ago. As color and part choice was completely different a decade ago. You would have needed a Time Machine in order to build this. Just watch out for Morlocks.

“As the population of Aurora V grew beyond its floating cities, a successor to the “Pegasus” Mk II was needed that could fly without the aid of gravitational anomalies. After extensive study of the planet’s flying reptiles, the Löffelschmitt company developed its iconic Mk III.
Some owners never adjusted to the new-fangled concept of “wings”, and the increased complexity in cockpit controls led to several crashes, forcing the Auroran government to implement its first pilot certification program (known to historians as the Dampfluftschiffpilotenausbildungsreform). On the plus side, the new concept of “lift” allowed more efficient engines, increased range, and the addition of onboard storage space.”
The Löffelschmitt “Pegasus” Mk III is the creation of Galaktek over at Flickr. This little steampunk flying machine is a masterpiece of design. Looking like something out of the mind of an alternate history Leonardo da Vinci. You can just imagine this thing wobbling and flapping wildly while expelling copious amounts of steam. In other words, a fun ride.
Based off of the Mk II, the Mk III improved on every aspect of the design. With a more balanced design and expanded wings, it almost looks like it could fly in real life.
