Dieselpunks

Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

There are threads on goggles, gears and just about everything else.

However, being the sort of folks that we are, I think we might need a thread on all of the "Misc." stuff we gather about ourselves, in our quest for Dieselpunk perfection.

The small submarine and two tanks are cast toys from about 1940. The dreadnaught however, is cast lead, and dates from around 1910. I suppose it's more "steampunk" than Dieselpunk. The atlas they are sitting on is from 1920, printed just after the WWI armistice.
I agree, we could use a thread on the subject. Here are a couple of my props. Cars from the Diesel era:


Year: 1910


Year: 1936


Year: 1948


Year: 1952

And from here on, I know nothing about the year...Sorry!


Let's play a game. Can anyone guess the models of the cars? (I don't know them either!)
I like the Kiwi C cab - very nice.


This is an early pin given to the first supporters of commercial zeppelin, around 1906, by the Zeppelin Company.
Oh I need that for my costume!
First time poster. I have actually had this setup for about a year now while I'm only recently discovering this movement. I designed and built the desk and computer myself. The desk is based off of an old secretary design with a few modern tweaks, including ports for computer cables and an overall minimal design. The computer is an original design based on classic radios, inspired by the work of Jeffrey Stephenson. I'm currently waiting on replacement keyboard and mouse, as well as an in-desk usb hub. All are aluminum finish so as to contrast the wood and match the knobs. I'm on the lookout for a monitor that fits within the space and allows the lid to shut.

Now that I've found this culture I'd like to do more similar work, hope to post more soon.

(more or less current photos, more to come)

That PC is sweet. Great design work!

Have you considered throwing an aluminum frame around the monitor, and stationing it on an arm attached to the top of the desk? That way, you can close the desk, and you can swing it back on top when you're done (filling your screen saver folder with some classy images to complete the look).

@ Gregg: Amazing computer, it makes me want to stick my PC back into a 20's radio case.

@ Tome: :o what if the computer had a duel monitor set-up? One in the desk, one on the arm.
Duel monitors would be costly, but more = better, right?

Indeed :D

@ Gregg Caruso - I couldn't help but notice there''s a Squier bass guitar next to your desk. I play bass too xD.

Which brings me to this: what about Dieselpunk'd guitars? I saw the raw metal look of the first results after punching 'dieselpunk guitar' into Google Images, but what about a little more extravaganza? I wonder how a set of exhausts (or something similarly characteristic to DP) would look on a guitar?
An electric guitar actually isn't that technical, so I can really imagine a deiselpunk one being much different. Now the amp, on the other hand...

I figure something like this would suffice for a bass; a vintage design from the 50's that's seen plenty of use.
